Prince William spoke about the importance of family on Saturday as he opened up about how much he loves his in-laws.
The Duke of Cambridge spoke to emergency service heroes whilst watching the Scottish Cup Final at The Cold House in Edinburgh on Saturday.
William, 38, was talking about how people had managed to keep in touch with their relatives during lockdown when he made the sweet admission about Kate Middleton's family.
"The funny thing is when I spoke to my family I found it so good to catch up — but then you haven’t anything to catch up on because no one had done anything," he said.
When one guest said they had not seen their in-laws for a year, William joked: "Some people are happy they haven’t seen their in-laws for a year." After some laughter, he added: "I love my in-laws."
William's insight comes after he detailed his heartbreaking moments following news of his mother, Princess Diana's death in 1997. (opens in new tab)
"Scotland is the source of some of my happiest memories. But also, my saddest," William said at the Opening Ceremony of the General Assembly of The Church of Scotland on Saturday.
"I was in Balmoral when I was told that my mother had died. Still in shock, I found sanctuary in the service at Crathie Kirk that very morning.
"And in the dark days of grief that followed, I found comfort and solace in the Scottish outdoors. As a result, the connection I feel to Scotland will forever run deep."
William's recollection comes after Prince Harry opened up about his "out of body" experience (opens in new tab) during Diana's funeral.
"For me the thing I remember the most was the sound of the horses’ hooves going along the Mall," he said in his new Apple TV+ documentary series with Oprah, entitled The Me You Can’t See.
“It was like I was outside of my body and just walking along, doing what was expected of me. Showing one tenth of the emotion that everybody else was showing.
“This was my mum – you never even met her”, he continued, referring to the huge crowds of mourners who lined the streets that day.
