It's not every day that Prince William does an Instagram Q&A session, but this weekend he treated royal fans to just that. Speaking on his Story on Friday (15 October) to raise awareness of the Earthshot Prize Awards, the Duke of Cambridge opened up to his 13 million Instagram followers.
As well as helping promote the Earthshot Prize Awards and the hard work of its finalists on his social media, the Royal also wrote a personal introduction for the Earthshot: How to Save our Planet book. And over the weekend, he and his wife, Kate Middleton, attended the awards and walked the green carpet alongside celebrities including Emma Watson and Emma Thompson.
Ahead of the ceremony, Prince William took to Instagram to chat with his followers, but while most of the questions focussed on his involvement in the Earthshot awards, one question about unicorns seemed to slip through the net. Yep, unicorns.
In fact, one follower was keen to know whether Prince William thinks the mythical creatures exist, and he had the perfect answer to that. "Well I think if you talked to my daughter, she'd say they were real," he laughed, before adding "Obviously, it's a trade secret so I can't possibly comment."
But it's not the first time the Royal has confessed his daughter's love for unicorns. Back in 2019 he also mentioned that the six-year-old had a growing obsession with them. On a visit to Harcombe House in Devon, he said (via Elle): "My daughter loves unicorns. Loves them. Very cool."
Princess Charlotte clearly isn't shy about her love for unicorns either. During her family’s visit to the King Power Royal Charity Polo Day in 2019, the Royal was spotted holding a glittery unicorn purse, and then just a few months later on her very first day of primary school, a sparkly pink unicorn keychain was seen on her backpack. We're so here for unicorn fashion.
As it turns out, unicorns are a bit of a running theme when it comes to the Royal Family, and the word 'unicorn' was used as a code-name for Charlotte's grandfather, Prince Charles.
That's right, the glittering, mythical creature was actually the nickname of our future King when he visited the United States in 1971. While there's no official reasoning behind it, we definitely think he's got a thing for rainbows and sparkles, just like his granddaughter.
