Prince William and Kate Middleton, along with their two children Prince George and Princess Charlotte, are on a whirlwind European tour, and it seems everywhere they turn they make headline news. Charlotte and George have captivated photographers with their adorable pouts and curtseys and out-of-plane-window peering, while Kate has given us lots of sartorial inspiration (and dangled the possibility of another royal baby with an offhand joke). But now, Prince William and Duchess Kate have added a twist to their travels—and a salty one at that.
After their arrival in Germany, the royal couple were treated to a class in hand-rolling pretzels at a market in Heidelberg, because if you went to Germany and didn't learn how to make a pretzel, what's the point? Dressed in a bright yellow lace dress and a handy apron, Kate dived right into the pretzel-crafting process, while it took Wills a bit longer to catch on. To be fair, he was wearing a dapper herringbone jacket, so maybe he was just being cautious.
It seemed everyone, including the many spectators and local bakers who came to help/watch, had a great time laughing and rolling, rolling and laughing, clapping for Prince William when he finally was able to untangle himself from the dough and present his carb-filled masterpiece. The couple later got a lesson in making candy, which seemed to fare a bit better. See below for Prince William and Kate Middleton Prepare Local Foods: a story in four parts.
First, the couple watched the master. See how hard William is concentrating? Guys, it takes a lot of skill to nail this.
OK, here they go. Kate is already loving it. They're pretzels, so why not?!
The Duchess finishes before the Prince can even get to step 2, poor guy.
He's done it!
