We know he loves chicken and now he has a nickname to prove it. Here’s how KFC trolled the Duke of Cambridge and his affinity for their finger lickin’ fast-food.
Prince William’s love of chicken is not news. In fact, we’re seriously starting to wonder if he has ever eaten anything else in his life. He’s acknowledged it’s the one dish he loves to cook, it’s the dish he and Kate make at home when they’re just hanging out, and now, he’s been bestowed a new title for his wandering fast-food eye: His Royal Thighness.
The nickname comes courtesy of KFC, which trolled the 38-year-old Duke of Cambridge earlier this week while he and Kate Middleton were out and about for an official event, and Will got distracted by a KFC in London along the way. He was snapped peering through a window watching people eat.
I’m sad I didn’t call him His Royal Thighness in the main tweet tbh

“His Royal Fryness” would have also been an acceptable answer.

KFC has some competition for a place in William’s fast-food loving heart. In 2018, Will revealed that he’s a fan of a chain called Nando’s, which serves something called peri-peri chicken, a flame-grilled bird with African Bird’s Eye Chili.
Will says he became a fan after one of his protection officers, who is a diehard fan, introduced him to the fast-casual spot.
According to People, Will told told Robert Brozin, the guy who started the company in Johannesburg, South Africa back in 1987, that he recently started eating the eatery’s spicy chicken. Referring to his protection officer, Will told Brozin, “This man here is your biggest fan, he’s introduced me to Nando’s. It’s very good.”
Brozin said he wasn’t surprised Will had eaten his chicken because “the beauty of Prince Harry and Prince William is that they’re really accessible and they are guys that go out a lot – I’m very happy that they’ve tried it.”
