'You’re just so real': Sassy Welsh grandma's hilarious exchange with Prince William and Kate Middleton
HOLYHEAD, WALES: A sassy grandmother had the newly crowned Prince and Princess of Wales in fits of laughter during their visit to North Wales. While mingling with the people gathered outside Holyhead Lifeboat Station, Prince William and Princess Kate struck a conversation with a cheeky granny, who wished them a "bore da!", meaning "good morning" in Welsh.
Prince William joked to woman, "We're looking for a babysitter," according to North Wales Live. The conversation quickly moved on to the royal couple's three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis. Keeping with the same spirit of fun, the gran replied "I would, but I’ve got no teeth", to which a clearly amused Prince William reassured her "that doesn't matter."

The woman, who even held hands with William and Kate during their chat, admitted she'd forgotten to bring their gift, explaining, “I’ve forgotten the Welsh cakes in the rush on the A55." She added, “I thought s***, the royals are coming to Holyhead." After a while, the Prince and Princess of Wales started to carefully make their way down the line to greet those who were excitedly anticipating their arrival. The unidentified woman called them back to present them to her first grandson, but she wasn't finished with their talk yet. Enjoying her company, Prince William told the proud woman, "Do you know what, we’d have a lot of fun together. I can see a real budding friendship, (between) you and me."
She even offered the next-in-line to the throne a friendly shove, clapping joyously as he broke out laughing, before warmly wrapping his hands around hers. She seemed entirely at ease with the royal pair. Beaming, the woman told the future King, "I love you, you’re just so real", adding, "Diana would be so proud."
Before heading off to greet others, Prince William said, "Lovely to meet you, we’ll chat again next time we’re up." This week marked the first visit by the Prince and Princess to Wales since they were given their new titles. As part of their new responsibilities, they will now be making more frequent visits to the nation, and it is anticipated that they will return before Christmas.
