The pair officially opened the company’s Centre of Excellence, with William trying but hilariously failing to show of his business knowledge.

“Is it just hammering the hell out of a product?” he asked a graduate.

Kate was seen rolling her eyes and chuckling at his comment, while the graduate said: “That’s one way of putting it!”

William laughed and replied: “Excuse my lack of engineering knowledge….”

When they stopped by the kitchen, Kate said she loved to bake with her kids, but George makes a bit of a mess.

“So what are you making, this smells seriously good,” asked Kate, “what are you putting in? Is this just chocolate? Golden syrup? Good.”

“When I try to do this with George at home, chocolate and the golden syrup goes everywhere. He makes so much mess. It’s chaos!”

The royal couple said they had a wonderful day and everyone at the hospice repeatedly said they couldn’t believe how “normal” they were.

“They were so funny and relaxed and they really made a difference in the kids’ days. They all absolutely loved them!”

Do you think it’s nice to hear William opening up about his mother? What do you think of the royal couple?
