Emojis have become a ubiquitous part of our digital communication, and they are used by people from all walks of life, including even members of the British royal family. In a recent interview, Prince William and Kate Middleton shared their favorite emojis, shedding light on the more relatable and playful side of the royal couple. The couple were not shy to reveal it to the public, just like when Kate Middleton disclosed her husband's adorable nicknames or when Prince William shared his love for Nando's.

As they discussed World Mental Health Day and various aspects of their lives, including dinner plans, they couldn't resist revealing their emoji preferences. Prince William, known for his sense of humor, took the opportunity to joke about his choice, while Kate Middleton shared a more family-friendly option.

Prince William's go-to emoji is rather inappropriate

Prince William and Kate Middleton recently made a lighthearted revelation about their favorite emojis during an interview on BBC Radio 1's Going Home show. The royal couple joined the broadcast to promote World Mental Health Day and, amidst the discussion, were asked about the emojis they use the most.

Prince William kicked off the conversation with a bit of humor, saying, 'Is this a clean thing, or is this a family one?'

He jokingly added that his favorite option of emojis is the aubergine (eggplant) 🍆:

'I've been told not to say the aubergine [eggplant emoji], so I've got to pick something else. It would have been the aubergine, but I'm saying now—because I've got to be all grown up—it's the one where the eyes go up and down and the mouth's out. What's that one? The slightly crazy one.'

Kate Middleton, on the other hand, chose a more family-friendly emoji, stating, 'Mine's probably going to be the heart, with then the crying emoji—the sort of hysterical laughing when things have gone wrong.'

During the conversation, they also discussed their dinner plans, with Prince William noting his difficulty with spice, saying, 'I can't do too much spice; I start sweating. It's not attractive.'

Meanwhile, Kate mentioned, 'Whereas I like the spice, so I have to sort of cook the curry and then add the spice, extra spice, at the end.' To this, Prince William humorously commented, 'She has to bring it in gently because otherwise I get too sweaty. It's not a nice sight.'

A busy year full of royal engagements

William and Kate's light-hearted chat was part of their efforts to raise awareness about mental health on World Mental Health Day. The couple has been actively involved in mental health advocacy, and during the forum, they interacted with young people, participated in workshops, and discussed their own experiences and insights. This trip, notes The Mirror, comes after William visited New York for his two-day mission to highlight his Earthshot Prize.

On Thursday, the royal couple continued their efforts in promoting mental health by visiting the Bisham Abbey National Sports Centre in Marlow, located to the west of London. During their visit, they engaged in discussions about the psychological aspects of sports. As per The Mirror, this is not the first time the Prince of Wales has addressed such issues, as he previously joined a talk on mental health with England captain Harry Kane.

Kate and William both opted for casual attire at the event. The princess chose to wear a blue Zara blazer, a white top, and skinny jeans, while William sported a navy-blue sweater layered over a light-blue shirt, paired with jeans.

As per The Telegraph, the pair actively participated in various sports activities, such as netball, where Kate, an enthusiastic athlete, attempted to score points while William playfully tried to distract her. They also took part in goalball, a Paralympic sport designed for the visually impaired, during which they wore eye masks.

This event was sponsored by SportsAid, a charitable organization that provides mental health services for young athletes. Kate has served as a patron of this organization for a decade, as reported by Town and Country.
