Prince William may be royal, but that doesn’t mean he’s never made a romantic mistake.
The Duke of Cambridge (38) shared some interesting details about his early days dating his wife, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge (38), during a recent BBC appearance on “That Peter Crouch Podcast”.
Its hosts, Peter Crouch, Chris Stark and Tom Fordyce, began discussing the worst gifts they gave their partners, and one shared that he had once donated a tree – which prompted William’s question: “Can you beat a worse gift than that?”; “
“I probably can,” the duke replied. “I once gave my wife a pair of binoculars. She never let me forget. “
“That was at the beginning of the judiciary, that was,” William laughed. “I’ll tell you what I think closed the deal. She failed at that moment. “
“I think I’m convinced of that,” he continued. “I was like, ‘They’re really amazing! See how far you can see!’ And she started looking at me, “They’re binoculars. What’s going on?” … it didn’t go well. “
He added: “Honestly, I have no idea why I bought her binoculars.”
In a more serious remark, William also discussed the importance of staying on top of his mental health.
“We all have mental health and we all have to stay mentally healthy,” he explained. “It’s the power to talk about your mental health, it’s not a weakness. You know that if you’re not feeling well, something is bothering you, he’s talking about it – it’s not a problem. “
William often speaks honestly about his own mental health. He recently shared that he was still fighting when he lost his mother, Princess Diana, who died in a car accident in Paris in 1997.
In BBC One’s “Football, Prince William and Our Mental Health”, he said: “When you have experienced something traumatic in life, it means your father was not around, my mother died when I was younger, your emotions come back by jumping and borders because it is a very different phase of life and no one can help you. ‘ “
