  • Prince William has shared an unlikely snack he once ate to help with his hangover, after a night out.

    The royal made the surprising admission during a trip to Peterborough on Saturday, where he visited a drop-in day centre for the city’s homeless.

    The 38-year-old spoke to former rough sleepers and those currently using the centre’s services.

    Gary Griffiths – a roofer who worked on the restoration of Windsor Castle after the 1992 fire – commented on the prince’s trimmed-down appearance, stating he needed ‘a bit of pie and mash’ to ‘fatten’ himself up a little.

    To which Prince William replied, ‘Around the jowls maybe, have lost a bit of weight up here, around the chin? Maybe lockdown hasn’t been quite so [bad].’

    The group discussed other Cockney foods the royal could eat to gain a little weight.

    Another individual at the event, Robert Smale, said that Prince William commented, ‘I ate jellied eels on a hangover, after a bender.’

    Robert said he thought this was ‘quite good’ – adding ‘at least he’s human.’

    The centre – which is run by Light Project Peterborough – has helped house 130 rough sleepers since the coronavirus lockdown began.

    During the visit, Prince William said Britain would ‘never have a better chance’ to solve its homelessness crisis and urged the country to ‘be brave and a bit bold’ to address the issue.

    The royal commented, ‘I’m really hoping – I mean this pandemic has been truly horrendous for everyone – I’m really hoping that the slivers of positivity and the slivers of goodness that might come out of this is in the homelessness side of things.

    ‘You’ll never have a better chance nationally to crack homelessness and do something properly.’
