Prince William reveals one of the “worst” gifts he has given to his wife Kate Middleton

Prince William may be a member of royalty, but that doesn’t mean he has never made a romantic mistake.

The Duke of Cambridge, 38, shared some interesting details about his early days of dating his wife, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, 38, during a recent BBC appearance on “That Peter Crouch Podcast.”

His hosts Peter Crouch, Chris Stark and Tom Fordyce began to discuss the worst gifts they gave their partners, and one shared that he once gave him a tree, prompting the question to William: “Can you win a gift worse than that? ” ? “

“Probably can,” replied the duke. “I got my wife a pair of binoculars once. He never lets me forget that.”

“That was at the beginning of the courtship, that was it,” laughed William. “I tell you what, I think that sealed the deal. She fell in love with me at the time.”

“I think he was convincing me,” he continued. “I thought, ‘These are really amazing! Look how far you can see!’ And she started looking at me saying: “They are binoculars. What’s going on? “… It didn’t go well.”

He added: “I honestly have no idea why I bought him a pair of binoculars.”

On a more serious note, William also spoke about the importance of staying on top of his mental health.

“We all have mental health and we all have to stay in mental shape,” he explained. “It is a strength to talk about your mental health, it is not a weakness. You know that if you do not feel well, something bothers you, talk about it, it is not a problem.”

William often speaks frankly about his own mental health. He recently shared that he still has problems after losing his mother, Princess Diana, who died in a car accident in Paris in 1997.

In the BBC One documentary “Soccer, Prince William and our mental health”, he said: “When you have been through something traumatic in life, that is, your father is not around, my mother dies when she was younger, your emotions come back in leaps and bounds because it is a very different phase of life, and there is no one to help him. “
