Kate Middleton reveals one of Prince Louis' first words was about a TV chef
The Duchess of Cambridge also shares that she enjoys cooking with her children, as a way to teach them to be more creative and to "try and be as independent as possible with it."
One of Prince Louis’ first words was “Mary”, according to his mum, the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton. He's now 19 months old.
The Duchess related the story on the unexpected word while on a BBC Christmas special called A Berry Royal Christmas with Mary Berry, TV chef and former judge on The Great British Bake Off.
She told Berry: "One of Louis' first words was Mary, because right at his height are all my cooking books in the kitchen bookshelf. And children are really fascinated by faces, and your faces are all over your cooking books and he would say 'That's Mary Berry'... so he would definitely recognise you if he saw you today."
The Duchess also revealed that she enjoys cooking with her children, explaining that it was a way for them to be creative, “for them to try and be as independent as possible with it.”
Prince William also appeared in the programme and spoke about how his relationship with his late mother, Princess Diana, had influenced his style of parenting, especially when it came to talking to his children about social issues.
He said: "She realised that it was very important when you grow up – especially in the life that we grew up – that you realise that life happens beyond palace walls, and that you see real people struggling with real issues."
He made the statement in relation to the issue of homelessness.
During the programme, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge prepare food, with Berry’s help, for a royal event to thank those working and volunteering over the festive period.
