Prince William's Welsh lamb burger love; Harry flies economy class

Former RAF chef, Gareth Matheson, has revealed Britain's Prince William was one of the biggest fans of his Welsh lamb burger, which is topped with cheese, bacon and a fried egg.


Former RAF chef, Gareth Matheson, has revealed the 33-year-old royal was one of the biggest fans of his Welsh lamb burger, which is topped with cheese, bacon and a fried egg.

Gareth said: "It was William's absolute favourite. Whenever he was on shift he would always ask for it. When he was working nights he would always ask for me to do another one for throughout the night.

"He liked the idea that we were using all local and fresh produce. He liked a little bit of spice but not too much. He doesn't like curries and things like that."

And the 450-calories meal was particularly liked by the Duke of Cambridge because it stopped him snacking late at night.

Gareth told the Daily Mail newspaper: "I suggested it to him, he said he would give it a go and since then he never really looked back. He tried it and loved it and he would have it a couple of times a week. I thought he was going to turn into a burger at one point.

"It is a lot but he used to tell me that because it was a big meal, a good meal, it used to fill him up over the night shift so he wouldn't snack."
Britain's Prince Harry flies economy class

Britain's Prince Harry flew economy class to Johannesburg, South Africa, much to the shock and delight of the other passengers.


The Ramshaw family from east Yorkshire, England were left shocked when they bumped into the 30-year-old royal on an airplane to Johannesburg, South Africa.

Helen Ramshaw said: "I turned round and said, 'Oh my God, I think Prince Harry is on board. I've seen him get up and go to the toilet'. Of course, no one believed me until they saw him coming back. They all went, 'Oh my God, it's Harry' and Tom said, 'What is he doing on here?' This was just in economy towards the back of the plane, on a flight to Johannesburg."


However, the family avoided approaching the flame-haired royal, who was dressed in black, as he was accompanied by two security guards.

She told the Hull Daily Mail: "His security men would not allow us to speak to him, so I think a selfie may have caused a bit of a stir.


"He's quite a hunk. Tall with a very cheeky smile and twinkly eyes - no wonder the ladies love him."

Prince Harry is in Africa for three months, working on conservation projects.

But his trip has been met by critics, most recently, when a senior minister in the Namibian government dubbed him a "rich westerner" who will "not change anything".
