Prince William leaves royal fans in tears after hilarious quip sends Twitter into meltdown

A photo of Prince William taken while he was out supporting his wife Kate's event has sent Twitter into a spiral. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge made a surprise outing to tour two sites in London where the Hold Still photos are being showcased. Royally Obsessed podcast hosts Roberta Fiorito and Rachel Bowie discussed fast food chain, KFC's unexpectedly hilarious addition to the event.

Ms Bowie told listeners: "My favourite part is that they were right by a KFC.

"William looked through the window at someone's KFC meal.

"Then KFC tweeted the picture of him looking through the glass.

"They wrote: 'William whispered quietly to himself, 'oh I just can't wait to be wing''."

She continued: "We've got to give their social media team a raise!

"I was crying with laughter when I saw that.

"Also that shot, that doesn't make the major media outlets.

"I love that sort of introspective moment for him."

Ms Fiorito added: "Kind of sad that Kate's event got derailed at bit by the funny moment.

"KFC also tweeted: 'I'm sad I didn't call him His Royal Thighness'.

"Give these people a raise, they deserve it."
