She's got jokes! Kate Middleton quipped that she was going to buy her husband, Prince William, a Spider-Man costume after she spoke to a martial arts teacher who dressed up as the Marvel character to cheer up kids during lockdown.
"Thank you for sending in your photograph because there are some really emotive and really sad images and stories that we had," Kate told Jason Baird during a phone call in which she thanked him for submitting his photograph to her Hold Still photo exhibit. "But this brought, you know, particularly to the judging panel, it was such a wonderful, positive image of community spirit. It was amazingly captured."
"And I hadn't appreciated at the time that you are a martial arts teacher so that gives it a lot of context as well," she added.
"When we heard the news that we were only allowed for an hour a day, exercise and activities whether it was a walk or a run, it was a more a case of we wanted to try and cheer the kids up," Baird, who would walk around in the costume during the pandemic, replied.
The photo that Baird submitted showed him doing a backflip as children looked through the window to see his skills.
As a result, Kate remarked that she would have to invest in the outfit for her husband.
"I'll see if it takes on the trend to Kensington Palace. I might have to buy William a suit," she said while laughing. "Unfortunately, I'm not so sure he's going to get the air clearance that you've got!"
The two just returned from Scotland last week, and since they were away from their kids — Prince George, 7, Princess Charlotte, 6, and Prince Louis, 3 — they were able to spend some time alone together.
“Their Royal Highnesses have been in the East Neuk of Fife today and surprised us by ending their visit with a takeaway fish supper, which the Duchess told us, was a lovely ‘trip down memory lane,'” Anstruther Fish Bar wrote via Facebook about the couple's outing. “They enjoyed the whole takeaway experience, as most visitors to Anstruther do, sitting on a bench by the harbour, while no doubt keeping a watchful eye out for the local, hungry seagulls!”
