Kate asked him, “Have you tried to do a plait [braid]? It’s the weaving…really hard.”
William said, “I can do [3-year-old Princess Charlotte’s] ponytail, but that’s about it as I don’t have enough hair to practice on!”
Just last week, Kate showed off her own hair styling skills as she and William visit Northern Ireland’s Cinemagic, a charity that uses film, television and digital technologies to help more than 500,000 young people.
During a makeup and storyboard demonstration with children from Malvern Primary School, Kate tried her hand at braiding the hair of a young performer in heavy makeup and stage prosthetics alongside two young helpers.
During their rainy day in Blackpool on Wednesday, William and Kate headed to Revoe Park, which has been transformed with the help of local park wardens and Better Start Blackpool. It is now used by local kindergartens and fathers’ groups as a forest school to promote outdoor learning and better parenting.
Arriving in the torrential rain, Kate had changed her high-heeled suede boots for flat ones.
“Quite the weather for it,” she joked.
