During the festive special, “A Berry Royal Christmas”, Mary Berry accompanied Prince William and Kate to royal engagements. In one scene, Duchess Kate takes the Queen of Cakes along to The Brink, a dry bar in Liverpool, which was set up by Action on Addiction.
While there, Mary rustled up a non-alcoholic cocktail and asks Kate to take the drinks over to guests during the engagement.
The Duchess revealed: “Reminds me of my university days when I did a bit of waitressing.” “Were you good?” asks Mary, to which Kate answered: “No, I was terrible!”
The Duchess of Cambridge is a royal patron of Action on Addiction; which works to help individuals and families affected by all forms of addiction, whether it’s alcohol, prescribed or non-prescribed drugs, gambling, gaming, sex and even food related disorders.
Prince William and Kate met while they were students in residence at St Salvator’s Hall at the University of St Andrews. She reportedly caught William’s eye at a charity fashion show at the university in 2002 when she appeared on the stage.
William proposed to his then girlfriend in November 2010 and he and Kate married the following April. The couple are parents to three children: Prince George, six, Princess Charlotte, four, and Prince Louis, 1.
During the show, Kate also revealed that Prince William tried to impress her back in university days cooking all sorts of meals in the kitchen. The Duchess confessed to Mary Berry that Bolognese sauce was one of William’s speciality dishes.
“In university days he used to cook all sorts of meals,” she told the baking legend.
I think that’s when he was trying to impress me, Mary! Things like Bolognese sauce, and things like that.”
Asked if he cooks for her now, Kate replied: “He sometimes does actually – he’s very good at breakfast.”
