PRINCE William and his wife, Catherine, tried their hands at making chapatis and serving curry as they joined a Sikh community group preparing meals for vulnerable people in Edinburgh on Monday (24).
The royal couple, who are visiting Scotland, was guided by women from the Sikh Sanjog group as they rolled out chapatis and served curry in the kitchen of the Palace of Holyroodhouse, the Queen’s royal residence in Edinburgh.
In a video uploaded by the Royal Family channel, the couple can be seen learning how to roll out round chapatis. The Duchess of Cambridge spoke of her love of curry and said they enjoyed eating it at home. The duke revealed his wife loved spicy food but said he was “not too good with spice”.
Asked if she made curry at home, the duchess replied: “Yes, I love it.”
The duke laughed and said: “She likes a bit of spice. I’m not too good with spice.”
The couple is known to enjoy takeaway curry.
Sikh Sanjog, a charity, set up a service to provide meals twice a week to disadvantaged people in the community during the coronavirus lockdown. It was founded by Trishna Singh, 67, in 1989 to support women from the Sikh community and help them integrate into wider Scottish society.
Earlier, the royal couple visited the Scottish Violence Reduction Unit in Cockenzie, where the duchess tried her hand at being a music producer.
The visits, which included Orkney on Tuesday (25) and the University of St Andrews on Wednesday (26), are based around the duke’s role as Lord High Commissioner, the Queen’s representative at the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland.
