Wills apologises for Queen’s ’same dress’ in royal birthday cardsMay 13th, 2009 - 1:22 pm ICT by ANI
London, May 13 (ANI): Prince William had to apologise after a 109-year-old woman wrote to the Queen to complain that Her Majesty wore the same yellow dress in all five royal birthday cards sent to congratulate her.
Catherine Masters’ letter compelled William to promise that his grandmother would wear a new outfit for the next card.
According to reports, the prince visited the Grange Care Centre, Stanford-in-the-Vale, Oxon after staff contacted local MP Ed Vaizey about the pensioner’s letter.
“We talked about lots of things,” the Daily Star quoted Catherine, who has been invited to a garden party a Buckingham Palace in July, as saying.
“He told me he liked making shepherd’s pie and said he used a masher to mash the potatoes but I told him he was doing it wrong - he should use a fork to fluff the potatoes,” she said. (ANI)
