Prince William cracked some dad jokes about styling Princess Charlotte’s hair
Prince William joked with a fellow dad on Tuesday, March 5th, about the struggles of doing their daughters’ hair. William chatted with a local as he and wife Kate Middleton visited a park in Blackpool that had been transformed from a place where addicts once congregated to a family-friendly playground. A resident who belongs to the group Dads 4 Life got a laugh from William and Kate as he spoke of the challenges of styling his little girl’s hair, adding that he finally learned after watching YouTube tutorials.
“Never try to do a ponytail!” William commiserated. “Nightmare.” 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.
