Prince William ‘struggles with spicy food’
Britain’s Prince William “struggles” with spicy food, he has revealed ahead of his trip to India.
The royal has let slip that he is not great when it comes to eating hot curries as he and wife Duchess Catherine gear up to embark on a week-long tour of India and Bhutan next week.
William – who has children Prince George, two, and 11-month-old Princess Charlotte with Catherine – revealed to Burberry model Neelam Gill that he doesn’t have much of a penchant for fiery food as the couple met young people from the two countries at Kensington Palace ahead of their visit.
Speaking about her conversation with the royal couple, Neelam – who was the first Indian model to be cast in a Burberry campaign – said: “She told me that she loved Indian food so I told her that she’d be fine with the spices.
“But William told me that he struggles with the spices so I told him to watch out.”
But one hot aspect of India that William is looking forward to is the weather.
He is quoted by the Daily Mail as saying: “Mumbai is about 35 degrees – it will be a belter. I’ve had enough of winter time, I want to get away.”
The duke and duchess will start their tour in Mumbai next week, but William admitted he would’ve loved to have been in the country last Sunday where the final of the Twenty20 World Cup cricket tournament took place between England and West Indies.
He explained: “I wish I was there for the last week, for the final – amazing game.
“As much as England lost, the West Indies winning is not bad, they’re so passionate.”
