Prince William has revealed that he will update his kitchen at Adelaide Cottage, after receiving a surprise gift from an adorable young boy in Lincolnshire on Friday. 

Prince William's kitchen at Adelaide Cottage is about to get an upgrade! 

The Prince of Wales shared the exciting news on Friday morning, after receiving an adorable present from a young royal fan in the East Midlands of England. 

The precious moment occurred during William's solo trip to Lincolnshire, where he visited RAF Coningsby, a royal air force station that dates back to 1940. 

The future King was given an in-depth tour of the center, in which he was told all about its latest technological advancements and even offered the opportunity to try on a pair of virtual reality goggles. William, 40, also officially opened a boxing club at the RAF, cutting the ribbon in typical royal fashion in honor of the special occasion. The brand-new facility, which is located in the heart of the military base, was designed for the base's personnel to train after the sport became popular during the pandemic.

While chatting with military families outside the station, Prince William also received a special gift from an adorable little boy. Three-year-old Blake Fearnley handed him a drawing of the Disney character, Mickey Mouse, much to the royal father's delight. Blake's mum, Laura, even said that William promised that he would "put it on his fridge" when he got home. She also revealed that the preschooler had asked the prince for a 'cuddle' after the exchange a request that was graciously granted.

Prince William currently lives at Adelaide Cottage in Windsor, with his wife, Kate Middleton, and their three children, Prince George, 9, Princess Charlotte, 7, and four-year-old Prince Louis. With just one kitchen at the Grade II listed four-bedroom home, it looks like Blake's homemade picture will be displayed for the entire Wales family to admire. 

During the same engagement, Prince William also dodged a question about Mike Tindall's appearance on I'm A Celebrity 2022. When asked by Corporal Rachael Howes "who he wanted to win, Lioness Jill Scott or his relative Mike Tindall," the royal could be overheard replying, "That's a tricky one."
