Prince William and Kate Middleton were on a visit to DAY1, a charity in Scotland that helps young people in need. As they arrived, they were introduced to a game involving a ping pong ball and a cup. A fan account shared a video of the couple playing the game.
Prince William effortlessly bounced the ball into the cup on his first try, earning cheers from the children. With a playful smile, Kate teasingly said, "You've done that before!"
It was then Kate's turn to take a shot. She traced several circles around the upside-down cup with her finger before turning it over and attempting to bounce the ball in. After a couple of misses, William couldn't resist a joke, saying, "We'll be here all day!"
Finally, the ball landed in the cup, and Kate playfully told the children, "Finally!" The couple's banter is nothing new. In 2016, Kate told chefs at a dinner that William had to put up with her cooking most of the time, and he jokingly replied, "It's the reason I'm so skinny!"
Kate also dishes out jokes at William's expense. On a previous occasion, William was planting a tree, a favorite way to mark a member of the royal family's visit. Despite his experience, Kate pointed out, "William, you've missed a bit."
The Prince and Princess of Wales are known to be competitive during royal outings. Whether it's a cocktail-making contest or a spin bike race, they always bring out their competitive sides. They even joked about it on a podcast, with Kate coyly denying her competitive nature, even though they have never been able to finish a game of table tennis because it becomes a mental challenge between them.
However, amidst all the teasing and competitiveness, Prince William and Princess Kate also show their unwavering support for each other. When a child asked who she was, Kate replied, "I'm married to William," highlighting her role in supporting her husband, who is set to be king one day.
According to royal biographer Penny Junor, Kate is like Prince Philip supporting the Queen. She doesn't outshine William but still has a lot to say herself. A source also added that Kate is a woman who takes on whatever she needs to. She and William are a formidable team.
Throughout their day in Scotland, the couple displayed their playful and loving dynamic. They engaged with the children, laughed together, and showed their unwavering support for each other. Prince William and Princess Kate's relationship is a true example of a strong partnership, built on love, fun, and shared goals.
