Kate Middleton and Prince William co-host BBC Radio 1 chart show


Most people think that thanks to the huge amount of money to which they have access the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge must be living a fairy tale life.

However, in an interview with BBC Radio 1 the couple denies rumors of a lavish lifestyle. They spoke about their everyday life and it appears to be surprisingly normal.

The Duchess of Cambridge, née Kate Middleton, revealed some secrets about their lives at home. The two like to watch series. Prince William is currently very fond of Homeland and Game of Thrones.

They sometimes dare to order Indian or Chinese food and Kate said that she likes spicy curry dishes. However, they do not let their food be delivered to the front door of the palace and they have someone on staff pick up the order for them.

They also admitted that they rarely attend parties because they are usually quickly recognized. The last concert that they went to was Coldplay performing at Wembley Stadium.

Prince William was particularly in the mood to joke:. “I felt very privileged,” he said about once having the chance to get a shout out from former DJ Sara Cox. “I’m probably on the edge of your age limit, I’m probably supposed to go on Radio 2 now but I’m hanging on in there.”

When the subject turned to going incognito to music festivals, the prince referred to his dance moves that were caught on camera during a recent ski holiday in Switzerland. Charlotte and George’s father had been filmed performing a dad-dancing choreography.

William quipped: “I’ve got into enough trouble with my dancing recently. So it’s probably best to stay away from that one.”


This isn’t the first time that Kate and William talk openly about their private lives. Earlier this week the couple and Prince Harry opened up about their own personal struggles in a video released in support of their Heads Together campaign.

Kate Middleton, Prince William and Prince Harry share candid conversation about their struggles in new video

Sitting around a wooden table in the gardens of Kensington Palace in London, Princes William and Harry and Duchess Kate discuss the difficulties of life and the importance of being able to confide in someone.

At the beginning of the clip, Prince Harry asks why their campaign is called “Heads Together” and his sister-in-law tells him it was his idea, evoking the causes that each of the three of them is dedicated to and stressing that one of the common points is related to mental health.

The video lasting for about seven minutes was published on the official Facebook page of the royal family. The three go uncensored in admitting their own personal struggles.

The Duchess of Cambridge, née Kate Middleton, evokes the first difficult days after the birth of Prince George.

“Having a child, particularly your first child, is such a life-changing moment. Nothing can really prepare you for that,” she explained, before turning to her husband with a smile and saying, “Remember the first few days with little George? You have no idea, really, what you are doing, no matter how many books you read, nothing can prepare you for it.” [via HELLO!]

“There’s no rule book, there’s no training that teaches you how to do it, you’ve just got to learn from previous generations and hope that translates into what you want to do,” said William. “When you have children, it really does put your own emotions and your own life into perspective and it has been very interesting why I get so upset about some things and why some things really affect me. I thought I was quite straight down the line, but I’m actually, I feel quite a lot more than I used to do.”

The two brothers reveal what they felt when they lost their mother, Lady Diana, when they were only young teenagers.

They acknowledge that they did not, at the time, sufficiently discuss their suffering among themselves.

“We have been brought closer because of the circumstances as well, that’s the thing. You are uniquely bonded because of what we’ve been through,” William says. “But even Harry and I over the years have not talked enough about our mother.”

His brother Harry adds: “I always thought to myself, you know, ‘what’s the point of bringing up the past, what’s the point of bringing up something that’s only going to make you sad? It ain’t going to change it, it ain’t going to bring her back.’ And when you start thinking like that it, can be really damaging.”

“When you speak to other people’s families and little kids and stuff you think ‘wow, I don’t want them to go through the same things,'” he explained. “With a little bit of experience you want to do everything you can to help to stop them bottling it up.”

The video highlights the extent to which the “Heads Together” campaign has gone to address the stigma around mental health.

Kate Middleton proud of “brilliant” Prince Harry after opening up about Princess Diana’s death

As part of their Heads Together campaign to promote mental health awareness, Princes William and Harry revealed their feelings after the death of Lady Diana.

The royal trio appeared in a video shot in the Kensington Palace gardens on Wednesday afternoon to discuss a number of issues that were close to their hearts.

During the discussion, they addressed the issue of mourning and the two brothers opened up about the death of their mother 20 years ago in a tragic car accident.

“My way of dealing with it was sticking my head in the sand, refusing to ever think about my mum, because why would that help?” Harry said. [via The Telegraph]

“(I thought) it’s only going to make you sad, it’s not going to bring her back. So from an emotional side, I was like ‘right, don’t ever let your emotions be part of anything.'”

On Wednesday, during a reception held at Kensington Palace for runners taking part in Sunday’s London Marathon for the Heads Together campaign, the Duchess of Cambridge, née Kate Middleton, chatted with primary school headteacher Jamie Maloy.

He revealed to the Duchess how great it was for Prince Harry to make such a confession, telling her: “What I love is your brother-in-law talking the other day, because it just ignited it.”

“Everyone’s talking about mental health now because someone who is so famous and so much in the public eye has actually turned around and said something hit me hard – the death of a close loved one. And I think people have gone ‘good on you, because you could have never mentioned that,'” he said.

Catherine praised her brother-in-law for his courageous admission: “We all felt there was very much a campaign to get everyone talking and have these conversations, (so) we’ve got to do the same, you know, do the same – so he’s been brilliant.” [via The Telegraph]

Kate was very open about herself as well during the campaign, as she recently confessed how difficult it is to be a good mom.

Kate Middleton admits motherhood can be “lonely”

The royal often speaks about motherhood, but on Thursday she was very open about the subject during a speech at the Global Academy in London.

During the event, the Duchess of Cambridge, née Kate Middleton, also spoke with two mothers, Katie Massie-Taulor and Sarah Hesz, who created an application named “Mush”, which helps to connect mothers.

A mother of two children herself, George, 3, and Charlotte, almost 2, Catherine confessed how difficult it is to be a good mom.

“Yes, it is lonely at times and you do feel quite isolated,” she said [via Daily Mail]. “But, so many other mothers are going through exactly what you are going through.”

“It is being brave enough, like you obviously were, to reach out to those around you,” she added.


Lately, William and Kate have been more open than ever about personal things and experiences, an effort meant to support their “Heads Together” mental health campaign.

Meghan Markle shuts down lifestyle blog The Tig

The Suits actress, who has been with Prince Harry since last year, founded her lifestyle blog in 2014 and now decided that it was time to end her project.

Markle posted a note on The Tig’s homepage and its page on Instagram, where she thanked her fans for their years of loyalty.

“After close to three beautiful years on this adventure with you, it’s time to say goodbye to The Tig,” she wrote.

“What began as a passion project (my little engine that could) evolved into an amazing community of inspiration, support, fun and frivolity. You’ve made my days brighter and filled this experience with so much joy. Keep finding those Tig moments of discovery, keep laughing and taking risks, and keep being ‘the change you wish to see in the world.’ Above all, don’t ever forget your worth – as I’ve told you time and time again: you, my sweet friend, you are enough. Thank you for everything.”

Kate Middleton, Prince William and Prince Harry support Heads Together campaign with short films

The Duchess of Cambridge, née Kate Middleton, Prince William and Prince Harry presented 10 short films on Thursday within their Heads Together campaign, which seeks to change the national conversation about such problems.

The campaign encourages discussion on mental health, including through the release of Internet videos.

In one of them comedienne Ruby Wax is talking with her husband about the moment she realized that she was suffering from depression.

Cricketer Freddie Flintoff is among those commenting on his experiences with anxiety and depression.

“The hardest thing for me initially was talking,” he says. “I’m not a big talker. I’m from the North of England, I’m from a working class family, we don’t talk about our feelings.”

Rapper Professor Green adds: “It’s no different from me growing up in a council estate in East London – it’s just not something that was spoken about.”

Heads Together is a project of the royal family aimed at combating prejudice towards those who suffer from mental illness.

Kate Middleton stuns in green lace dress at British art gala

This week Kate attended the British art gala and lit up the evening in a green lace gown.

The mother-of-two wore a dark green floor-length robe from Temperley London, one of her favorite labels.

Kate, who has been patron of the National Portrait Gallery since 2012, completed her look with a pair of long earrings by Kiki McDonough, a gold clutch and metallic Jimmy Choo sandals.

The 35-year-old, a history of art graduate, focused on the event, in which masks by artist Gillian Wearing were exhibited.

At the event, Kate also met several parents whose children will go to school with Prince George in September.

“We were chatting about Thomas,’ the school George will be going to. We’re parents there as well. She just said, ‘I may see you at the school gates,’ ” Richard Found, one of the parents, said.

Prince George to attend top private school Thomas’s in Battersea

“Their Royal Highnesses are delighted to have found a school where they are confident George will have a happy and successful start to his education,” the palace said.

After a year and a half spent in a Montessori school near the family home in Sandringham, George’s arrival in a London school is an important event.

The school’s headmaster at Thomas’s Battersea, Ben Thomas, said: “We are honoured and delighted that Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have chosen Thomas’s Battersea for Prince George. We greatly look forward to welcoming him and all of our new pupils to the school in September.”

This school is different from the one that Princes William and Harry attended. The two brothers went to Wetherby School, which is a stone’s throw from Kensington Palace, in Notting Hills.

Princess Charlotte, who will celebrate her second birthday in May, could soon join her big brother.
