‘Going to take another drink!’ Kate and William strive to learn Irish slang.
KATE, Duchess of Cambridge, and Prince William arrived in Northern Ireland for their royal tour, and while in Derry-Londonderry, the royals entertained supporters by attempting to learn the local tongue.
On their official tour of Northern Ireland, the Duke and Duchess of Cambrdidge paid a visit to Derry-Londonderry on Wednesday.
Local students sought, but failed, to teach the royals local idioms when they were in town.
He drank a half-pint of Guinness while trying to teach the Prince phrases.
He said, “I’ve had a whiskey, now I’ve had a Guinness.”
“I’m just oblivious to the passage of time.”
During their tour, the royal couple met young people and learnt how organizations in the area work together to create constructive relationships.
They started their journey at Ulster University’s Magee Campus, where they met nursing students with whom they had previously spoken about their experiences studying during the pandemic.
The royal couple addressed large throngs of students who had gathered on campus to see the Duke and Duchess.
William and Kate took part in a game where they were presented Irish names on a screen and had to determine how to pronounce them while seated at a table with a group of pupils.
However, William stated that he struggled with Irish pronounciation.
“I’m going to have another drink,” the king quipped, “I’m not doing very well at this.”
“Give us a juke at that,” “Let’s head out for a little dander,” and “This is pure wick, so it is” were among the phrases the students attempted to teach the royals.
The Duke and Duchess of York’s official visit to Northern Ireland follows their appearance at the much-anticipated premiere of the latest James Bond film on Tuesday night.
The royal couple came at the Royal Albert Hall in London to watch No Time to Die, the highly anticipated 25th Bond film.
Due to the Covid epidemic, the film was delayed for nearly a year and will finally be released in UK theaters on Thursday.
