Katharine, Duchess of Kent, who is married to Prince Edward, Duke of Kent, has revealed she's a big fan of rap music, with Eminem and Ice Cube among her favorite artists.
In an interview with The Sunday Telegraph, the royal revealed she has a very varied music taste.
"I'll listen to anything" she told Camilla Tominey for the paper. "If it makes my feet tap, then I'm happy."
And while she didn't know the artists names off by heart, she identified tracks from Eminem and Ice Cube as some of her preferred tunes.
She also revealed that listens to the radio to find the music she likes, explaining that she prefers music that, "catches my ear on the radio – I don’t really listen to records."
The duchess concluded, "I just love music."
As well as rap music, the Duchess of Kent also spoke of an appreciation of 'beat boxing' and even said she would give thrash metal a try, "but possibly not for long."
In the interview, the duchess speaks about how her love of music was cemented as a child, when she learned to play a number of instruments.
She tried her hand at the piano, violin and organ, narrowly missing out on a place at the Royal College of Music in London.
The duchess then went on to set up a music charity in later life called Future Talent, in a bid to "break down barriers, create opportunities and harness the power of music to transform lives across the UK."
