The tiles will be glazed by students, fired in their kilns and then installed in one of the campus walls. Kate kept her priceless diamond and sapphire engagement ring on throughout the exercise. Her first effort barely left an imprint prompting her husband to tease her: ‘Come on, come on. Do it properly’ before showing her his. ‘Now that’s an imprint.’ As they made their second mark, William looked over to his wife and rolled his eyes. ‘Come on do it again a little harder,’ he joked. For their last effort the couple did a joint imprint, putting their hands over each other to push down. As they did so the pair started play fighting, trying to push each other out of the way. Afterwards they washed their hands in the sink and Kate patted away at the prince’s trousers, desperately trying to get some of the clay off his Saville Row suit. ‘Oh well, it’s my own fault. I should have put an apron on like you,’ he remarked to Kate , who had sensibly put a black apron on over her navy and white crochet top and white pleated skirt by High Street store Whistles.
As the couple got into the ‘chutes’ of the bull pen for a closer look, William attempted to jump into the ring prompting his wife to break off the conversation she was having and shout ‘William! William!’.
The obedient Duke climbed back up, but crept back into the ring moments later. Kate, by now looking rather scared, glared at him and gestured with her finger for him to come back up.
William then put his arm around Kate’s waist and walked inside to the waiting reception. ‘It’s so nice to be in jeans,’ he whispered.
