Prince William and Kate Middleton are a great example of a healthy couple, being comfortable showing affection in public and teasing each other during engagements, especially when there is a competition involved. With their 10th wedding anniversary just around the corner, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are looking stronger than ever.
Back in 2019, BAFTA host, Clara Amfo spoke with HELLO! about her first meeting with Prince William and Kate Middleton in 2018, sharing details that further prove the healthy relationship the two have.
“Kate had no qualms making fun of William’s hair situation,” Clara revealed. “And he took that. There was a lot of banter around that, it was very funny!”
The presenter added: “Prince William is the most fun royal that I’ve met. He’s got a lot of banter actually. He’s a very funny guy. And the banter between him and Kate – his and Kate’s energy is really funny. They vibe off each other very well. They were like a really loving, comedy act.”
Clara was invited to meet the royal at their home in London, Kensington Palace, for a BBC Radio 1 Teen Heroes event.
“Kensington Palace is a palace, it’s not even a house,” Clara talked about the meeting. “It takes your breath away when you go in. They gave us lovely snacks, the snacks were fantastic, we were treated very, very well.
“There were beautiful pictures up of all the kids, William and Kate, Meghan and Harry. It was just a really beautiful family home.” She was asked whether there were toys litter all over the place. “None of that,” said Clara. “It is a very well-kept home!”
She continues, talking about the feeling you get when meeting royals: “It’s always a little bit nerve-wracking, but I think the great thing about them is that once you start talking to them, you quickly realise that they’re just like you and me.
“I mean obviously, you know, bigger houses and relatives on currency, but they’re just really cool people, and they’re really passionate, especially about people in the UK.”
During an interview with Cosmopolitan, she talked a little bit about her personal experiences in the love game. At the time she was believed to be single, so she admitted that she feels more confident in dating now than she did when she was younger.
“I’m really open about dating because I know so many women in a similar position to me where they’re really coming to know what they’re worth,” she said. She noted that she was open to finding love and that “entertaining conversations” could be the spark that would light some kind of relationship.
