It’s well known that Prince William has a sweet tooth, and it seems he can’t wait until Sunday to devour the Easter chocolate, according to wife Kate Middleton.
The Duchess of Cambridge, 38, revealed how her husband ‘keeps eating’ all the treats during the couple’s first royal engagement via video call.
Dialling in from their Norfolk home, Anmer Hall, William, 37, and Kate spoke to staff and youngsters from Casterton Primary Academy in Lancashire.
The school are helping to look after the children of key workers in frontline services including the NHS and social care, as well as supermarkets and delivery drivers.

When the staff wished them a lovely Easter, William replied: ‘There’ll be a lot of chocolate being eaten here that’s for sure.’
Before a cheeky Kate quipped: ‘You keep eating it!’
The royal couple are both known for having a sweet tooth, with the pair serving two cakes at their wedding on April 29, 2011.
One was William’s favourite chocolate biscuit cake, which is made from a special recipe involving Rich Tea biscuits and dark chocolate and is set in the freezer rather than baked in an oven.

The couple also had a multi-tiered fruit wedding cake which was decorated with fresh fruit and flowers.
During their video call, the Duke and Duchess were keen to thank staff for all they were doing during the Covid-19 epidemic as well talk about the effect it is having on the youngsters.
But there was also time for a spot of fun as the pupils showed off their Easter arts and crafts, including a felt collage they had made, with rainbows and hearts saying ‘Thank you NHS’.
‘I like your bunny ears,’ smiled William. ‘They look like the real deal.’

Several children showed William and Kate portraits of their key worker parents and explained why they were proud of them
One child, who had been doing a history project told the duke that the ‘first William was called William the Conquerer’.
They asked: ‘What do you want to be called in 1,000 years time?’
However the current Prince William laughingly said he didn’t think he could answer that.
Anita Ghidotti, Chief Executive of the Pendle Education Trust, said the children also asked them who ‘the best famous person was that they had met’.
‘I bet they don’t get asked very often,’ she laughed. ‘The Duchess said that Prince George has been watching lots of David Attenborough’s Blue Planet so that would probably be hers. The Duke said his favourite people weren’t actually famous.’
Kate, dressed in a spring-appropriate yellow Zara jumper with puff sleeves and gold fern drop earrings costing £165 from Zoraida London, was also given a virtual bouquet by Lloyd, aged nine.
