She was gracious in defeat as she accepted a huge wooden spoon for coming last in a sailing regatta against Prince William on Thursday. Yet with a smile on her face – that only got wider when Princess Charlotte stuck a mischievous tongue out at the assembled crowds – the dressed down Duchess of Cambridge has rarely looked more comfortable in her royal role as she did during the family day out on the Isle of Wight. Holding her face in her hands during the comical prize giving, Kate, 37, appeared to take her team’s defeat and disqualification in remarkably good spirits, shaking her head as compere Dan Snow joked: “This is the first time the duchess has ever finished last at anything.” In fact,...

But this is all very well known, so what fun things has the Prince done that the public don't know about? Five things you didn't know about Prince Charles 1. The Prince doesn't eat lunch - ever.
