Prince William has – especially in comparison to his brother Prince Harry – a reputation for being calm, reserved and conservative. But if he wants, William can be fun and easy going in public too. He proves this with a new statement.
Prince William, 38, has the foreword for a new cookbook called “A Taste of Home”, which celebrates the 40th anniversary of The Passage. The first few lines should put a smile on many faces.
Prince William shows humor
“I’m the first to admit I’m not an excellent cook. The last time I got into the kitchen of ‘The Passage’, they sensibly gave me the role of sous-chef (aka the carrot chopper) I ‘made’ a spaghetti Bolognese (recipe on page 101). The dish smelled incredibly good – probably because I didn’t cook it, “jokes William. There is a photo to prove it: It shows the Duke of Cambridge in a kitchen with an apron tied on, a pile of carrots in front of him. Fortunately for himself and his children, Prince George, seven, Prince Charlotte, five, and Prince Louis, two, Duchess Catherine, 38, is much more experienced when it comes to cooking …
It is a serious issue
After the joking introduction, William strikes a serious note: “What impressed me most, however, was how homeless people feel at home when they share a hot meal in the canteen of ‘The Passage’. It is valuable to have a place to call home. ” This is especially true in the Corona period, notes the 38-year-old. He has been the patron of the charity organization “The Passage” since 2019 and first visited it in 1993 as a child with his mother Princess Diana, † 36.
Prince William isn’t the only famous name that appears in the cookbook. The 120 recipes included were contributed by celebrities and renowned chefs, including Mary Berry, Cherie Blair, Rory Bremner, Samantha Cameron, David Dimbleby, Stephen Fry, Ken Hom, Nadiya Hussain, Paul McCartney, Andrew Marr, Yotam Ottolenghi, Jon Snow and Rick Stone. All proceeds from the book will go towards helping the homeless.
