Responding to the kind confession, the doting dad, who is also father to six-year-old Prince George and one-year-old Prince Louis, announced, “Yes, she is lovely. Just like my wife.”

During the visit, Prince William and Duchess Catherine spent time with the crewmembers of The Mumbles’ Royal National Lifeboat Institution, who are available to save lives at sea 24 hours a day.

Later they made sure to treat themselves as they stopped off at Joe’s ice cream parlour, a famous joint in Swansea.

As the couple enjoyed some vanilla ice cream, William admitted he’s a “chocolate man” before trying a second scoop- this time chocolate flavoured topped with chocolate sprinkles in a wafer cone.

When asked if his little ones are partial to a bowl of the frozen delight, William explained, “They do, some more than others.”

Kate, who enjoyed a cup of vanilla ice cream with a flake, was keen to know if any other flavours were on offer, asking, “Are you always coming up with new flavours?”

Praising the local business, William also remarked, "I bet it’s packed in here in the summer."
