Prince William ‘joked’ about an Uber driver getting frisked on the floor of the palace

william podcast

White Supremacy: The Photo.

Prince William was recently a guest on That Peter Crouch Podcast as part of his “work” on men’s mental health. William’s “work” is mostly just hanging out with dudes and talking about sports and occasionally saying “mental health, yeah.” It’s just busy work. William chilled with the Brosefs and they ate Indian food and talked about some sh-t. Some quotes:

The worst gift he ever gave Kate: “I did get my wife a pair of binoculars once – she’s never let me forget that. That was early on in the courtship that was. I wrapped them. They were really nice. I was trying to convince myself about it. I was like, ‘but these are really amazing, look how far you can see!’ She was looking at me going, ‘they’re binoculars, what’s going on?’. It didn’t go well. Honestly I have no idea why I bought her a pair of binoculars.”

He went to a bachelor party: He also revealed that he went to Blackpool for a friend’s stag do and that Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody is his go-to karaoke song.

They ate take-out food in March: At the start of the podcast – which was recorded at Kensington Palace prior to the coronavirus lockdown in March – the Duke enjoyed an Indian takeaway from Peter’s local restaurant Samrat in Ealing. Although we don’t know every detail of their dinner choices, we are certain that William’s favourite curry was served. Speaking of his go-to takeaway Indian, he said: “Chicken masala, love that, a bit of flavour – I’m not a vindaloo man put it that way.”

William’s “joke” about the takeout: “It doesn’t usually get ordered to the palace, we tend to go and pick it up,” before jokingly adding “not ourselves!” However, after answering the knock at the door before the recent podcast, William quipped: “There’s an Uber driver out there on the floor being frisked.”

[From Hello Magazine]

Yeah. First, the binoculars – why are men such terrible gift-givers? Women are so easy to buy for – just get us flowers or jewelry or a nice sweater or a new set of sheets or a good book or literally ANYTHING. But no, William has such Clueless Bro cred that he talks about getting Kate… binoculars. I guess it was supposed to be funny. Or maybe he was telling her to get another hobby besides waitying. *cough*

As for the “joke” about “an Uber driver out there on the floor being frisked…” That’s gross and unbecoming the “future king.” The only way it can be read is as a snidely classist joke, one which punched down, and that it’s not a good look for the “future king” to be seen and heard laughing at the expense of a working class delivery person as he literally sits in his palace pretending to be a f–king bloke. And he still hasn’t said one word about Black Lives Matter. But he’s got all day to talk about football and “mental health.”

Britain's Prince William speaks with service users during a visit to the Garden House part of the Light Project in Peterborough, England, Thursday, July 16, 2020. The Garden House offers information, advice and support to the rough sleepers in Peterborough.

    Maybe he thought the binoculars would make stalking him easier. Very thoughtful actually.

    • Digital Unicorn says:

      Hahaha – but I suspect he was regifting. He’s done that a lot with her – i recall once reading a story about how he gifted her a bracelet that was given to him as a wedding favour. He cheap and thoughtless AF – if he made the effort to know what she likes it would be easy to buy her something that would have given her some joy.

    • Milly says:

      When I read about the binoculars I immediately thought he could have been hinting to her to get ready for the long wait.

    • notasugarhere says:

      Does she use them now to watch him walk across the fields to Rose?

    • Elizabeth says:

      I would love binoculars.

      • TeamAwesome says:

        My husband once got me binoculars because we lived in an area with a lot of birds and other wildlife and he knew how much I like to spot them. That clearly didn’t happen here, but they aren’t an inherently bad gift.

      • North of Boston says:

        Exactly, Elizabeth and TeamAwesome!

        I’d love a gift of a great pair of binoculars or a spotting scope. They are a fantastic gift for the right person … perhaps someone who is curious about the wide world around them, and interested in seeing things with a little effort that they might otherwise miss. And from my SO, two pairs of binoculars would be even better, since it would mean that he’d be coming along with me when I went out to explore the world.

        But William apparently didn’t consider the recipient when he bought them.

      • Haapa says:

        As an avid birder, same!

    Dear God, these people!! *eyeroll* They need a series of educational seminars to show them how short sighted and ignorant they are.

    FFS, Kaiser- stop! You are killing me with these shots you pick! These four bland, nameless, white men laughing their asses off like super villains- *chef´s kiss*brilliant!

    PS: had to look the meaning of the expression- my God, William is terrible! Being searched by a police officer outside is a joke to him!

    • Levans says:

      Fully agree! Brilliant

    • BeanieBean says:

      That photo alone kills me. I just know whatever they were saying just prior is not something I would want to hear. I know that laugh, that group (white) male laugh.

      • Hope says:

        Crouch was overlaughing at everything. If you’ve ever seen Jimmy Fallon, that’s how Crouch was behaving.

        Crouch mocked the restaurant for including a menu and laughed uproariously about the driver being made to lie on the floor and be frisked. After he left, William “joked” that he counted the silverware to make sure Crouch didn’t steal anything. I wonder if he finally understood that as far as William is concerned Crouch is more like the delivery driver than someone William would be friends with.

  4. Faye says:

    Such a funny anecdote, not!

    William always reveals his true character with his little “jokes” or side comments. Lord knows what he said to Harry regarding Meghan for those assholes over there to call Harry “too sensitive “.

    • Tessa says:

      I think William always had a cruel streak.

      • BayTampaBay says:

        Noe Schitt Sherlock.

      • Faye says:

        Yep, he let’s it slip every now and then in the public.

        Kate shrugging off his shoulder so forcefully makes me wonder what he’s said or done to her? I have no use for Kate because a cow herself, but I’m just nosy.

      • Belli says:

        William’s humour always seems to have a snide and unpleasant edge to it.

      • Tessa says:

        He was that way with Harry for years but the Cambridge stans keep saying how “wise” William is and “Harry should have listened.” I think he could have made some nasty comment about Meghan during the “advice.”

      • Hope says:

        Honestly I thought people were overreacting back then about William’s comments to Harry I thought they were just being brothers making fun of each other. Wow, have I changed my mind.

      • Becks1 says:

        And now we have a sense of the comments he was making about Meghan.

      • Ginger says:

        William constantly put Harry down and I bet it took a toll on his mental health.

    • Jen says:

      Like the Ireland tour when he joked about coronavirus?

      I think he reveals bits and pieces of himself that he doesn’t intend to.

      • Harper says:

        This was filmed in March, so pair this with the cough-cough Coronavirus-is-just-hype joke made on the Ireland trip at the beginning of the same month and we get a very good glimpse of what it’s like to hang around Willileaks. I swear, even if he wasn’t a racist snob, he is a bore, and I can’t imagine Meghan enjoying his company even if he had rolled out that red carpet for her.

    • Hope says:

      At Wimbledon, William mocked people who would be affected by a transit strike. He’s an arrogant a-hole and has been for years.

    • Merricat says:

      The smugness inherent in his privilege shows who he is, and who George will be. What will he do when taxpayers stop supporting the monarchy?

    • Sid says:

      Yes. His jokes almost always have a nasty, mean-spirited, or cold undertone to them and he seems to think it’s funny to knock people down. I first noticed it back during the first couple of years after George was born. It seemed like everytime someone asked him about George or about parenting, he never had anything good to say. It was always some “joking” complaint. I know being a first time parent is incredibly hard, but come on. Especially since there was a lot of talk back then about how little time he actually spent parenting.

      His little anecdote about having one of his bodyguards point a laser at an opponent during a school soccer game was also very telling. Instead of fighting his own battles he runs to his bodyguard to do it. During a school soccer game. This guy.

      • Lady D says:

        William also mentioned that the guy wanted to break his legs during the game. I remember reading something about Harry in school, years ago. He said in every single sports game he played at school someone was trying to hurt him. He said there was a game to see who could break Harry’s arm first. William confirmed he had the same experience during sports at their boarding school. They said that happened all through their school years.

      • notasugarhere says:

        If that ever happened, Lady D, it would be something to take up with school administrators and coaches. NOT to have taxpayer-funded bodyguards act like goons and frighten/threaten a student. This is the same nasty kid, William, who used to repeatedly hit other students, hit teachers, hit his own mother in public, and threaten to chop people’s heads off.

      • Cari says:

        Eddie redmayne also said that. He was at eton in the same year as William, played rugby with him. He said he felt sorry for him because at every game, every one wanted to hurt The future king.

      • notasugarhere says:

        Again, the way to handle this was not to have RPOs frighten the kid into thinking he was going to be shot.

    • Sunday says:

      Yes, it is his true character. However, I respectfully disagree with Faye and Jen above, slightly – I don’t think he slips sometimes in public and reveals it, I think he’s truly so out of touch and has been so coddled and protected his entire life that he has no grasp on how awful his behavior is and how arrogant, pretentious, and cruel he comes off. His close team is just as bad as he is and therefore would never call him out on it because they are the same way. This elitist, snobby, classist, pretentious behavior is the feature, not the bug.

      • ArtHistorian says:

        Yep. He is clueless – I bet that he really thinks he’s being funny and doesn’t realize that he’s revealing a not so nice side of himself.

      • Nic919 says:

        It’s obvious his team is just as bad because that Uber driver comment wasn’t a joke to anyone but idiots.

  5. Becks1 says:

    Someone pointed out on twitter that a large percentage of Uber drivers in London are Muslim, so his joke is classist AND racist – and just in poor form. I know it was before the protests and George Floyd and such – but he really thought it was funny to think about a delivery person being thrown to the ground and frisked for delivering curry?

    Even the bit about how they don’t pick up their food themselves – you’re sitting in your palace, joking about how you don’t even have to pick up your own food, uber drivers getting frisked, and THEN one of the podcast hosts made a joke like “he even left you a menu, like you’re going to order again.”

    Just awful and I was glad to see him getting dragged on twitter for it.

    • Tessa says:

      The Harry and Meghan trashers will elevate Stupid Will to sainthood no matter what he says. William sounds very condescending. William is supposed to be down to earth but he’s a huge snob.

      • Ginger says:

        They were the only ones that thought this was funny. Literally everyone else thought this was so awful. I’m glad people were dragging him.
        I think KP put this out to counteract the “snob” story from Finding Freedom and it failed. He is a racist snob.

      • Hope says:

        Their media guy must hate them

    • BayTampaBay says:

      Did they take the food in before or after the driver was frisked?

      This PWT comment makes no sense and only serves to make PWT look more out-of-touch than he really is if that is possible.

    • S808 says:

      He needs to stop speaking off the cuff all together. First the covid comment now this.

      • Mignionette says:

        I actually believe these comments are written for him to appeal to a particular base of people i.e . the baying Brexit mob. Notice that Johnson and Trump often do the same thing and will deliberately say inflammatory things that the UK right wing media will ignore or not challenge. It’s a clear signal to their key supporters that they’re equally as bigoted as them.

        It still amazes me that the BRF see BLM as being ‘political’. The idea that equality for black people is even up for debate is just shocking to me.

      • Sunday says:

        Nailed it, Mignionette – these repeated “unfortunate” comments are a feature, not a bug.

    • Sarah says:

      My first reaction was racist over classist given the profile of uber driver in London. Nothing about this story is good (unless you have your pro-Cambridge filter set to max).

    • Merricat says:

      Nothing so telling as what people find funny. William’s sense of humor is repugnant.

    • Nic919 says:

      Humour is when someone punches up and not punches down. William’s comment is making fun of someone with a weaker social position and really it’s the same type of bullying comment we get from mango Mussolini.

      Both have been raised with extreme privilege and have been sheltered from any real consequences for their asshole behaviour. There isn’t much difference between them really.

  6. BayTampaBay says:

    All of the statements by PWT sound to me as if they were made-up “off-the-cuff” by PWT to be entertaining. PWT failed; failed badly.

    I do not believe a delivery driver was laying on the floor and being frisked.

    • Edna says:

      Whether or not there was really an Uber driver on the floor, the comment/joke reflects William’s unconscious bias towards people of color.

    • Becks1 says:

      No, an uber driver definitely wasn’t on the floor being frisked. I am not rewatching the video, but I saw it yesterday and its more like he gets the food, the hosts are joking about getting food delivered to Kensington Palace, and that’s when Prince William makes a joke about security and the uber driver being on the ground, getting frisked.

      He was making a “joke” at the expense of someone just trying to make a living. It was racist and classist – and way to prove you’re not a snob, PWT.

      • ArtHistorian says:

        William’s “jokes” are never funny – because they are ALWAYS jokes on someone else’s expense, and the “someone else” is ALWAYS someone less privileged. There’s always the passive-aggressive condescending tone to his jokes – and they reveal a lot about him. I do think that he’s honestly thinking he’s funny – but the things he thinks are funny aren’t really funny for people who aren’t entitled by either social, financial or white privilege.

      • Oshin says:


    • RoyalBlue says:

      can you imagine King William joking about the delivery driver being frisked? a superiority complex is a mental illness. entitled prick.

  7. Tessa says:

    I hope the Queen and Charles have long reigns. Enough said.

  8. Girl_ninja says:

    He’s so out of touch and messy.

  9. S808 says:

    All his mental health work is is just drinking in public.

    • Becks1 says:

      It’s like someone realized that if they want William to work, they have to promise him he can talk about football, drink beer, and just say “mental health” a few times.

      • Hope says:

        That’s what the podcast is like. His big contribution is going to be badgering the organization into changing the name FA Cup into a long winded title about Heads Together FA Cup for Mental Health. Why? To start a conversation.

        William’s mental health “work” is like Kate’s Early Years 5 questions. It’s busy work because they don’t actually have anything. They just keep mindlessly talking about trying to start a conversation. It’s been years of this. William’s energy and knowledge was about discussing football. He sounds clueless about mental health.

  10. I pet goat 2 says:

    Bah the video
    Disgusting bros

  11. Edna says:

    People like PWT don’t get/understand why his comments are disturbing. It’s what they’ve always said and thought and hey, what’s everyone getting upset about. They’re too lazy and entitled and blind to their unconscious bias to do the hard work of being self reflective and changing their mindsets and behavior.

  12. Lauren says:

    Are binoculars really a bad gift? She’s supposed to be so outdoorsy, binoculars are great for that. I had a pair when I was young and loved them.

    • Becks1 says:

      I don’t think they’re that bad either, but I don’t think Kate was dating William so he could give her binoculars.

    • Tiffany says:

      It would not surprise me if Kate fake interest in one of Bill’s hobbies (or straight lied that she did the hobby as well) and the one time he was listening to her, he gave her binoculars.

      • Rapunzel says:

        @tiffany- yeah, I’m guessing Kate expressed an interest in hunting or bird watching. Probably used “but I don’t have any binoculars” as an excuse not to have to tag along though, cause she doesn’t really like it. So PWT got her binoculars so she’d have to join him. Sounds about his speed.

      • Tealie says:

        Kate is definitely one of those women whose male intrests/ personhood become her own. She is, as gone girl describes it, a ‘cool girl’.

    • Sunday says:

      Binoculars are an excellent gift for any nature or boating enthusiast.

      Ok, this is SO PETTY: I think it’s entirely possible he made a crass joke about giving them to her “so you can always keep an eye on me.” This is entirely speculation based on absolutely nothing, but I can so see him saying that and thinking it was HILARIOUS.

    • Mich says:

      I would love it if someone gave me a top end pair of binoculars. The really good ones are super expensive.

      • Feeshalori says:

        You can buy the large racing binoculars that are more powerful and mount them on a camera tripod for star gazing. They aren’t extremely expensive.

  13. Noki says:

    Can you imagine what vile things he says BEHIND closed doors. I can bet for sure William as he gets older will be making the same ridiculous jokes and statements like Prince Phillip.

    • Royalwatcher says:

      ^^ THIS, Noki!!! If these are the things he says when he KNOWS he’s being recorded, he must he 100x worse in private. I’m fully on the William-said-something-racist-about-Meghan (to her face and to Harry’s face) train. He’s is a vile, small, racist, horrible, unfunny, incurious, close-minded person. I honestly don’t see one redeeming thing about him. He has no desire to change or grow (and probably thinks he’s awesome as he is)…and the problem is that he surrounds himself with yes-people (see all the dudebros laughing hilariously when William made his comment and the other guy comments “they even left a little menu, as if you’d ever order from them again.), so no one is ever going to encourage Will to change. He’s gross.

    • Alexandria says:

      It’s even more believable now that Kate and William’s marriage is a lot of work but she has to let everything slide because she must win the crown. Also, mummy said so. I can see Kate swiping at William a lot and then ultimately sulking because he won’t change. That’s aging as fuck. But hey, it’s your life.

  14. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    He got binoculars because he liked them. For himself. Usually when men frak up a gift so monumentally they considered themselves in the equation when purchasing. And God forbid anyone think he went for Indian food himself. And literally anyone on the planet could’ve guessed, as far as Indian food goes, he likes masala and that he’s not a vindaloo dude. One’s creamy and rich and the other is spicy and vinegary.

  15. Jo73c says:

    The binoculars seem like an obvious re-gifting to me.

    Football in the UK, even at the highest levels, is rife with racism, which could easily be included as a factor in discussions about mental health, even if he didn’t want to address it directly.

    • Becks1 says:

      He’s tried it with the racism angle, and it hasn’t gone so well. and I think right now, he’s probably being told to stay away from it because there’s immediate pushback about how they treated Meghan on social media.

  16. Florence says:

    This sort of thing could almost make me feel sorry for Kate


    The way he bitches and whines about how being a dad is haaaaaard – like, yes?? Parenthood is tricky??? He probably thinks interacting with the kids means he gets a weekend off to go Rose bushing.

    • BayTampaBay says:

      If PWT does not like parenthood, why did he have three kids?

      PWT has no idea what to say, has no clue what he is saying and does not understand what he has said!

    • Ginger says:

      Especially since he “sees his kids when he can” He isn’t even around them all of the time. But it’s “so hard”.

    • Dee says:

      He had his own apartment when he took that bespoke agriculture course, and didn’t go home at night. That was not long after one of the babies was born. Probably still has his own digs.

      • BayTampaBay says:

        I have never heard the “own apartment when he took that bespoke agriculture course”.

        Did PWT not drop out of the “bespoke agriculture course” because it was taking up too much of his time and affecting his royal duties? I could swear I read this somewhere.

      • Hope says:

        They just stopped talking about it. Probably because William din’t finish it.

        But the Cambridges did live apart then. This was right before they hired Nanny Maria and left for their trip to the Maldives to reconnect because their marriage was really not doing well at the time. George cried all the time as a baby because there was some issue with his food and it sounded like William left Kate to deal with it with her family and the staff.

      • Lady D says:

        He needed his own apartment for a six-week course, and he still couldn’t finish it?

    • cherriepie84 says:

      @Florence, I also guess that apart from Kate’s generally touted competitive nature with other women, she would have also been jealous of Meghan because of the clear love, adoration and support she receives from her prince whereas Kate actively seeks William’s approval and attention and she rarely gets as much as a glance from him.

  17. ziaaa says:

    Kaiser, You forgot to mention Baldy and his cronies making fun of both the Indian eatery as well as its owner’s earnestness in sending them a menu, “Sam…Rat,…, as if you’re ever going to order from there again!”

    Gawd can this racist PWT be any more gross and unlikable! And the three “gents” kiking with this snob…Worst.

    • BayTampaBay says:

      In the USA, almost every take out order is packed with a current up-to-date menu or flyer advertising special deals..

      • ziaaa says:

        So…how does it cancel William and his pals making fun of it?

      • BayTampaBay says:

        @ziaaa – It does not cancel anything. I was trying to make the point that why would someone try to make a joke about some event that is very commonplace.

        PWT: ‘Do they really think I will come back?”

        Me: “No. William everyone gets a menu with carry-out you are not special.”

        PWT should have promoted the business instead of making fun of the owner.

      • w1 says:


        Prince William didn’t even say that, Peter Crouch said “ he’s left a little menu as well as if you’re going to go back there”

        It’s fair enough if you want to critisize William but at least attribute the quote to the correct person.

      • BayTampaBay says:

        @w1 – I misread then misinterpreted the original post and/or quote. Please accept my apology if I offended you.

    • w1 says:


      The Samrat is Peter Crouch’s favourite restaurant. It gets mention in nearly every episode and I think he orders food from their to bring to recordings. A few episodes have even been recorded inside the restaurant. I’m sure the owner is delighted with the extra publicity the restaurant has received since the podcast began.

      • ziaaa says:

        @W1 I am not talking about the extra publicity…I am talking about the derogatory and negative undertones being attached to that Indian eatery where it is being cackled that the restaurant is too lowbrow for FFK to order from again.

        Also, I am sure the restaurant has been quite successful for years BEFORE Willie the Snob ordered from it. We should pray that it keeps on flourishing because everything the Keens touch remains incomplete or turns to dust.

      • notasugarhere says:

        Sure the owner is delighted to have his employees mocked by racists, and to see his restaurant mocked and dragged through the mud because of Lad William.

      • Tessa says:

        Those delivery people are heroic and deserve the utmost respect. They deliver food to those who can’t leave their homes. William is so ridiculous.

      • MA says:

        That’s patronizing. As a POC if my business or cuisine were mentioned in that way no I would not be thrilled but humiliated. Very “I like Indian food so I’m not racist”

        Maybe it’s his favorite restaurant but clearly he has no problem being snide about people in the service industry or implying this ethnic eatery is so beneath the upper (read white) classes

      • Couch potato says:

        It might be more about the distance between the restaurant and Kensington Palace.

    • HeyJude says:

      What saddens me is this shop probably thought this could be their “big break” moment, that perhaps the palace might become regular customers (!), and what a brag-able honor it is to serve the heads of the country, and instead they listen in to the podcast and heard that.

      Plus, to think the restaurant might be owned by immigrants, who IMO always put the most heart and soul into their shops in a special way and are so proud to share their traditional recipes…it just so incredibly disgusting he behaved that way. He lacks empathy.

  18. heygingersnaps says:

    I’ve stopped listening to one of the radio programmes on bbc radio 1 (their breakfast segment) when one of the dj’s started to pile on Harry & Meghan, furthering the narrative that kensington palace wanted out there. It was quite toxic. I remember when H&M announced that they were stepping down as senior royals he kept mocking and joking about them. I suspect it was in exchange for more access to willnot and cannot and lo and behold several radio 1 dj’s, such as greg james and chris stark (shown on the photo above with peter crouch & penis with teeth) have been invited to the palace to cover events.

  19. Beach Dreams says:

    Another day, another instance of William being an ass. To think his fans were so indignant about him being called a snob 🙃

    Oh and apparently this was recorded back in March. Posting this podcast now is rather interesting timing.

  20. KellyRyan says:

    I’ve said several times Kate is vacuous. Two of a kind. Willy is a good match.

  21. Léna says:

    Honestly, I hate the idea to be gifted flowers. It’s so unpersonal for me. Even a plant would be better.
    At my ex-job, I remember that the women would get flowers when quitting but the men would get nice gifts like football tickets, restaurant voucher etc. I had to push the idea of a small rice cooker for a month to avoid the flowers lol

    • Jessi says:

      This is a complete digression, but in a semi-recent tell-all article about working for some big media company (I’m pretty sure it was a luxury magazine but I can’t remember for sure, it was mentioned that for holiday gifts all the women got a pair of earrings and all the men got cash – so infuriating!

  22. taylor says:

    yeah, I haven’t seen a single mention of what sort of mental health issues they discussed during this podcast. Poor advocacy, if you ask me. I really wonder why of all causes, he (they) chose mental health. He seems to lack the empathy required to truly understand such issues, and time after time his words and behavior are contrary to the goals of that kind of work.

    Soooo….not only where Penis with Teeth (PWT) along with these Knobs classist and racist, but PWT is also threw in a round of authoritarian in there regarding palace security.

    So if a Uber or any food delivery driver comes up to the palace and say they have a order it is not as simple as *checks notes* security calling up to the main house to get confirmation that the delivery did happen and when confirmed them taking the order and sending the driver along their way.

    PWT has the expectation of these people getting assaulted for doing their job.

  24. Mignionette says:

    It’s like the courtiers struck gold with Kevin and Karen. They are the perfect canvases to project all they want onto;

    - lazy yet power hungry
    - entitled and scheming
    - Racist, class-ist and bigoted
    - un-imaginative, un-inspiring and lacking in any real drive or authenticity
    - stiff, stiff, stiff
    - BORING to the core

    They are the low hanging fruit of royal life and the enabling that is done to sustain their tawdry images is just astounding.

  25. Nic919 says:

    The difference between William and Philip is that William is saying this racist shit 50 years later and still doesn’t fucking get it.

    Do we really think he simply called Meghan “ that girl”. This last outing shows he has not problem being a racist classist ass in a filmed program.

  26. TyrantDestroyed says:

    Ugh. Rich and privileged people’s sense of humor is disgusting. I’m tired of hearing those jokes at the expense of the others working for them. It reminds me of the movie “Overboard” where the main character, an uber rich dude loves to mock and abuse his employees.

    I would love a good pair of binoculars tho. It’s the best way to get started in star gazing.

  27. Sojaschnitzel says:

    @Kaiser you’re killing me today :D So funny.
    Totally agree with everything you said, too.

  28. olliesmom says:

    Oh, Wills you are hilarious. Ugh. Such rich boy privilege.

  29. Lizzie says:

    Rejoice all you suffering from mental health issues in the UK, help is on the way. The future future king, Mr Untuckit and the rest of the You Are Too Old To Be Frat Boys club are having a good laugh at an Uber drivers expense. PW is working for you.

  30. Charfromdarock says:

    That caption 🤣

  31. February-Pisces says:

    Even Kate hasn’t made this many gaffs and that’s really saying something. He’s becoming the new Prince Phillip. He clearly doesn’t get how offensive it is it make fun of the working man whilst he’s sat in his palace. I’ve got a hell of a lot more respect for that Uber driver for making an honest living, than I’ll ever have for Willie.

    • Lizzie says:

      So many ways he is like trump. Must have his face front and center, thoughtless racism, jealousy of anyone else getting attention.

      • Nic919 says:

        They really are alike. Both have been sheltered from their asshole behaviour because of their extreme privilege and it shows in how ignorant they are to the general public.

  32. OriginalLala says:

    Ugh, they are so bad at this – if they want to continue existing the BRF needs a new motto, instead of “never complain, never explain” it should be “royalty should be seen but not heard”.

  33. Vanessa says:

    William is privileged snobby racist asshole who clearly thinks Highly of himself his jokes aren’t funny they are mean spirited put downs . I remembered when Harry Engagement was announced and both William and Kate made sure to be seen publicly and the reporters asked William what he thinks of Harry Engagement and he said now Harry will stop coming over to his house to eat and it was a completely put down to make Harry seems like he didn’t have his life together and depend on William and Kate for food .

  34. Mamasan says:

    He is vile. His mother would be beside herself at how he turned out.

    • Lizzie says:

      absolutely. she would never take a shot at someone just for a cheap laugh.

    • HeyJude says:

      Yes, so much so.

      There was a Daily Fail headline a few days ago how Diana would be “destroyed at the rift between her boys” and all I could think was no, Diana would be destroyed at the way William turned out and what he’s done to his brother. She’d be in LA with Harry, Meghan, and Archie right now if she were here.

  35. Beff says:

    I was as disgusted about the part where he had his bodyguards aim their laser gun on guys he was playing against in football.

  36. sarah1 says:

    I recently saw pictures of William in College. He was still cute then, but I was amazed at how obvious it was that he knew it. In today’s vernacular, he thought he was all that. There was even a picture where he had his pencil up to his mouth, posing. I was amazed. I’ve never seen a picture of Harry being full of himself.

    • February-Pisces says:

      His looks absolutely nose dived off a cliff. It’s tragic really. No wonder he’s pissed off at the world. Harry’s glow up really must of killed him.

  37. L4frimaire says:

    Maybe someone in UK can flesh this out but is there a major mental health crises going on over there in soccer? I know there is a huge racism issue, but are all these guys suffering in silence or something as they buy big houses, flashy cars, and go through women like tissues? Usually when Will does this, he’s sitting around with a bunch of mostly young white dudes, laughing awkwardly, and voicing a few platitudes. I really don’t get it because there are real serious issues out there, but his stuff seems very surface level. I’ve never even seen him talking with sports psychologists or talking to ex-footballers once they age out and have to reset their lives. Then again, he’s so off-putting so don’t follow what he does.

    • Waitwhat? says:

      I don’t really follow William’s charity work but I suspect the aim may be to use footballers as a way to make it more acceptable for men, in general, to talk about mental health issues more openly as there certainly is an issue with that and in particular with young men and suicide.

      [No doubt there are footballers with mental health issues - aside from the pressure to perform on a weekly basis and the dogs' abuse they get when they don't, they have very short careers which can be ended abruptly and may be far away from their families and support networks, especially if they're sold or transferred to another country. Not saying they're not well-paid for what they do, but it's got to a be a strange existence.]

      However, even if this is aimed at the fans, rather than the players themselves I think it’s telling that this is one of the William’s key causes, and it’s still not clear what the actual point of the charity is.

  38. Flying Fish says:

    I hope Penis with Teeth never becomes King.

  39. Flying Fish says:

    A bunch of white men seating around laughing at someone, probably nonwhite, for doing his job.

  40. Mina_Esq says:

    This guy is a tool.

  41. A says:

    I’m gonna be petty and bitter and just state for the record that Kate just has bad taste. If they were a really good pair of binoculars, I’d want them. I’ve been on the look out for a decent pair for a few years now because I like astronomy, and I want a feel for it first before I splurge on a huge telescope from the get go.

    That being said, it’s a question of what Kate’s particular interests are. So it makes sense that William is a shit gift giver, lmao. I doubt he knows nor cares very much what Kate likes or doesn’t like.

    As for him “not being a vindaloo man”–look buddy, your ancestress literally had herself declared the Empress of India because she didn’t want to be outranked by either the Russian tsar, or the German kaiser. The fact that ya’ll have the nerve to be this f-cking bland makes me ashamed. Why the hell did any of you colonize India, if you don’t like anything you supposedly colonized the place for? ?????

    • notasugarhere says:

      Victoria did that because she was petty; she didn’t want her eldest daughter (also Victoria) having an Empress title when she herself didn’t.

      Have you seen the film Ambassadors of the Sky by Brandy Yanchyk? It is about Canada’s work to decrease light pollution for environmental health and for astronomy.

      • A says:

        Oh I know, like I said, she didn’t want to be outranked by either the Kaiser (and her own daughter, who would have been Kaiserin), or the tsar, who at the time of Victoria’s reign was Alexander II and Alexander III, both of whom she didn’t like (she was prejudiced against Russia in general ofc).

        And I haven’t! I really should though. Speaking of night skies, some of the most gorgeous, clearest night views I ever saw were on Vancouver Island. I was lucky enough to stay at a place far away from the city, and I remember sleeping on the couch in the house I was staying in and looking out the window at night and being mesmerized by it. One of my teachers in high school always said you had to get very far away from the city to get some really good views, and that’s sadly been true for the most part. So any work that’s being done to decrease light pollution is really good and necessary.

    • Nic919 says:

      Remember when William went to the Bollywood cinema gala in India and admitted that he has never seen a Bollywood film? Talk about a xenophobic asshole and this is more of the same.

  42. Mads says:

    The comments on Twitter under that clip were all about how racist the Uber comment is and wondering about the mental health of the poor schoolkid who had the red dot projected on his chest, all so William wouldn’t get tackled in a game of football. There is another narrative building, albeit slowly but it is happening. Twitter is a great place to call out all the royal reporters; “experts” and pro-monarchy sychophants trying to act as the unofficial PR for the Royal institution. The pushback is coming from around the world and the palace should be worried, it is not, thankfully, business as usual.

  43. bettyrose says:

    Ugh, I don’t want my man buying me anything I’d have to wear in public (jewelry, sweaters, etc.) unless I’ve consulted on it, and housegoods (sheets??) don’t really send the right message. I agree that a book can be a very thoughtful gift, but it does require a lot of thought to get it right.

    Binoculars could be a great gift for someone who expressed a real interest in them. The thing is, buying gifts for someone who has the money to buy themselves the material possessions they actually want is tricky and in some ways pointless. I know my significant other can’t buy me anything I couldn’t buy for myself if I wanted it, so the best gift he can give me is planning special time together: dinner out, weekend in a country lodge, something that creates a unique memory.

  44. North of Boston says:

    That top pic … that’s a lot of teeth.

    • Feeshalori says:

      They look like members of a privileged men’s club, guffawing at repellent jokes only humorous to them.

  45. Howdy says:

    It will be a cold day in hell before William speaks on anything as political and controversial as BLM given the royals’ policy of keeping their political beliefs
    close to their vests.

    Harry speaking for William recently is as close as we will get and Harry only became political in public after stepping away from the royal family last spring.

  46. A.Key says:

    Wait, since when do Uber drivers deliver food??

  47. Well-Wisher says:

    Prince William is King of the Tories and hoarders of privilege.

  48. February-Pisces says:

    He bought kate binoculars so he can use them to spy on his neighbours to see which ones he wants to screw.

  49. Mariane says:

    If there was any doubt that harry’s “unconscious biase” statement was about William this can finally show it was!! This man is so out of touch with reality that he thinks a BAME driver being routinely targeted & searched by police is a laughing matter. I agree with others that his tory/brexiteers staff didnt find fault in this as it fits their views hence the BBC post getting lots of likes & positive comments from similar like minded people
