Kate Middleton says that her son Prince George has a taste for a kid-favorite dish! The Princess of Wales, 41, made the revelation while chatting with officials at the 2023 Rugby World Cup quarterfinal between England and Fiji on Sunday at Stade Velodrome in Marseille, France. Prince William and Prince George, 10, watched Wales play Argentina the day prior, and rugby legend Sir Bill Beaumont CBE told Kate her eldest son enjoyed the pizza!
“He took full advantage,” Princess Kate said in a behind-the-scenes clip that @RoyallyBelle_ shared on X. According to the fan blog, Kate told Beaumont that George had fun at the match and the World Rugby chairman replied, “He tucked into the pizza alright.”
“Yes, I know, I did hear that,” Princess Kate said with a laugh as she moved down the line to shake hands.
Prince George and Prince William are so in sync!😍— Belle (@RoyallyBelle_) October 14, 2023
Prince George made a surprise appearance with his dad at Stade Velodrome on Saturday, where they matched in navy suits and red ties to see Wales play. Prince William, 41, is the longtime patron of the Welsh Rugby Union and has brought Prince George along to sports events in the past.
In July, the father and son watched an England vs. Australia cricket match during the Ashes Test at Lord’s in London, where Prince George was seen snacking on some pizza. The young prince took a bite of a slice from a personal pie-sized box while his dad chatted with Prime Minister Rishi Sunak.
Kate previously said that all of her children — including Princess Charlotte, 8, and Prince Louis, 5 — are also fans of pizza, and they have made the meal together at home.
“I’ve done that with George and Charlotte – making pizza dough,” Kate once said. “They love it because they can get their hands messy.”
However, celebrity chef Aldo Zilli previously revealed that Prince George’s favorite meal is a different Italian dish.
“I’m waiting for the call because apparently [Prince William’s] little boy’s favorite is spaghetti carbonara, so I’m waiting for the call to go and cook it for him,” Zilli told the Daily Mail in 2020.
