Throughout , Prince William and Duchess Catherine have been famously fond of competition — whether it's watching a sporting event, taking the polo field, or rowing crew. So during their recent trip to Dundee, Scotland, the royal couple tackled a new challenge, with surprising results. It turns out Kate Middleton is not very good at video games.
During their October 23 visit it to Dundee's Abertay University, the pair met winners of a computer game-making competition and they also got a chance to test out their creations. Though William took the first turn, Kate was hesitant to give it a try. "I have a lot to learn," she admitted to the group, .
"I can't educate her, she's not interested," William quipped. But when she finally took the controller, her husband of four years cheered her on: At one point, he cried, "You got one!"
The prince also performed well on a game created by Jack Reynolds, 16, who noted that William "did as well as I did on my first go."
Kate, who had joined her husband earlier at a event promoting awareness of youth mental health issues, did find some success on a slightly slower game called "Strawberry Thief." Based on a William Morris floral print, it's played by striking fingers over a tablet as insects gather berries. "Prince William said he could see how calm it was and that Kate would like it," the game's designer, Sophia George told People. "So that's definitely made my day."
