Prince William Made Your Favorite Pasta Dish to Impress Kate Middleton During College
He's also a pro at breakfast, notes the Duchess of Cambridge.
When it comes to relationships, the royal family really is just like us. During the BBC television special A Berry Royal Christmas, hosted by baking expert Mary Berry, Kate Middleton and Prince William took part in baking for charity—and divulged new, relatable details about their romantic history in the process, reports People. Kate shared that William—who enjoys cooking every now and then, she says—attempted to impress her with a few dishes when they started dating.
As for his specialty? "He's very good at breakfast. In our university days he used to cook all sorts of meals. I think that's when he was trying to impress me, Mary," Kate shared. "Things like Bolognese sauce and things like that."
While the royal couple met as freshman at the University of St. Andrews back in 2001 and began dating shortly after, the duo took their time on their road to marriage. "We were both very young. It was at university, we were sort of both finding ourselves as such and being different characters and stuff, it was very much trying to find our own way and we were growing up," William said during their engagement interview. "It was just sort of a bit of space and a bit of things like that, and it worked out for the better."
The royal couple are now eight years into their marriage and have three children. During the BBC special, the couple went on to share their love for their family as they tested their cooking skills together—and the Duchess of Cambridge revealed that she especially enjoys baking from scratch for her children's birthdays. "I love making the cake," Kate said. "It's become a bit of a tradition that I stay up 'til midnight with ridiculous amounts of cake mix and icing and I make far too much. But I love it."
