Prince William’s assistant to be more specific.
The Cambridges are undoubtedly the most talked-about family in the world, and following Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s exit from the royal family, it’s hardly surprising that Prince William and Kate Middleton are making even more news.
Over lockdown last year, the Duke and Duchess’ roles were elevated, and from their relocation to their Norfolk Anmer Hall home to the Cambridge children making homemade pasta and distributing it to vulnerable neighbours, Kate and Wills really stepped up a notch.
The Duchess of Cambridge made particular headlines as she was mistaken for Prince William’s assistant and had the best reaction.
During a royal outing to Shire Hall Care Home in Cardiff last August, one resident, 87-year-old Joan Drew-Smith, asked Prince William, ‘Is that your assistant?’ while pointing at Kate.
Instead of taking offence, the Duchess of Cambridge laughed, telling her husband, ‘Well I am your assistant.’
According to HOLA!, Kate added: ‘I have been for a long time!’
‘The Cambridges’ favourite Bingo partners!,’ the Duke and Duchess captioned an Instagram post from the care home. ‘Having entertained the Welsh care home as bingo hosts in May, The Duke and Duchess re-visited Shire Hall in person!
‘It was great to see firsthand the amazing work done by staff and families to keep Shire Hall safe throughout lockdown.’
