Yes, they are allowed to order takeout, thank you very much

When you push aside the castles, the gold, the titles and the fame, Prince William and Kate Middleton really are just like the rest of us.

In a 2017 interview with Scott Mills on BBC Radio 1, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge revealed that when the palace menu just won’t cut it, they simply break down and order takeout.  And there’s one dish in particular that has become their go-to: curry.

The revelation came when Mills veered away from the topic at hand—mental health—and posed a hard-hitting question to the royal couple.

“Are you allowed to order in a takeaway if you wanted to?” he inquired.

“Absolutely!” Kate replied.  “Yes, definitely, it’s very important,” agreed William.

Like most couples, they admitted they often struggle when it comes to choosing between Indian, pizza and Chinese food. But more often than not, they settle on curry—just as long as it’s not too spicy.

“Yeah I’m not so good with the spicy food actually,” admitted William. “I’m not good with spice.”

From there, Mills’ fellow DJ, Chris Stark, turned the conversation to even more fascinating territory regarding the logistics of living life as a royal.

“If you do a takeaway, they must never believe you when you’re ordering it to the palace, right?” he asked.  

“It doesn’t usually get ordered to the palace,” William replied matter-of-factly. “We tend to go and pick it up. Not ourselves, but yeah.”

So, there you have it! Kate and Wills will have the mild curry for pickup, please!
