An amusing video shows the moment Prince William was offered karate lessons by a personal trainer yesterday as he spoke to the crowds outside Windsor Castle.
During a 40-minute walkabout alongside Prince Harry and wives Catherine and Meghan, the new Prince of Wales spent time talking to well-wishers who had gathered in their thousands.
And perhaps in an attempt to put a smile on the face of the grieving prince, Sensei Amie Benton told him to call her ‘anytime’ to arrange some karate lessons, saying her club was ‘only round the corner’.
William, who has recently moved to nearby Adelaide Cottage with his wife and three children, responded: ‘I need to get fitter so some karate lessons might help me out.’
Both flexed their muscles and laughed, with Prince William testing out his skills with some karate chop gestures.
In the background Catherine, now Princess of Wales, can be seen leaning in to talk to people in the crowd and accepting a large bouquet of white flowers.

One well-wisher said Kate ‘welled up’ as she told children that her youngest son Louis – who stole the hearts of the nation during the Platinum Jubilee celebrations – consoled her by telling her: ‘At least Grannie is with great grandpa now.’
Another royal fan who spoke to Harry and Meghan told MailOnline: ‘It’s lovely to see them both together. Maybe they can get back to a proper relationship.
‘A lovely ripple went through the crowd as they approached. Hopefully the healing between Harry and his brother can start now. I’m just so excited to have seen them both together. It’s lovely.’

Another added: ‘It might build some bridges. It might have been the Queen’s wish.’ And one girl, who hugged Meghan during the walkabout, said she was pleased to see the Waleses and the Sussexes back together again.
Yesterday’s surprise appearance is thought to be the first time that the two couples have all been in public together since Commonwealth Day on March 9, 2020.
And it is the first time William and Harry have been seen together in public since they joined for the opening of the memorial in honour of their mother, Princess Diana.
