They say laughter is the key to any good marriage, and it seems that Prince William and Kate Middleton, the Prince and Princess of Wales, have it in spades.
The pair were spotted on a royal trip to Birmingham, in England’s midlands, in celebration of the city’s strong multicultural history and burgeoning creative industries.
They visited a restaurant, The Indian Streatery, where the Prince of Wales answered the phone to take a customer’s reservation.
His hilarious antics as a maître d’ had his wife of 12 years in stitches, as she laughed at his slightly inept answering of the phone call.
“Do we have a seat for two right now?” William asked the owner of the restaurant, phone to his ear. When he responded with the time the customer could come, he was heard saying, “Does that work for you right now? No, apparently not right now.”
The person on the phone continued to tell the prince (without knowing it was him) that they had a train coming and needed to be squeezed in earlier—luckily William was able to oblige.
Throughout the whole escapade Kate could be seen by her husband’s side, watching the events unfold and laughing hysterically at their little ruse.
Apparently, when the man did come to the restaurant for his reservation, he had no idea he had been talking to British royalty while demanding an earlier spot.
The sweet moment provided a gorgeous insight into the couple’s good sense of humour. The pair were seen walking around Birmingham with William’s arm around his wife, and they also managed a big laugh as they tried their hand at making Indian street food with the all-female staff at the restaurant.
They also attended The Rectory pub where they met with future creative leaders paving the way for growth in the city, stopping for a quick game of darts with the locals.
