COMEDIAN JACK WHITEHALL MAKES ‘INAPPROPRIATE’ COMMENT TOWARDS KATE MIDDLETON
The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, and the Comedian, Jack Whitehall, are both posh but, most people don't know that they also have another thing in common.
Both of them attended the private boarding school, Marlborough College. However, Kate was a few years older than the comedian.
At the Royal Variety Performance in 2014, Jack revealed their similarities in education, but he also used the occasion to reveal an "inappropriate" secret.
On his arrival on stage, he started to explain how he knows the Duchess. "I'm very excited to be here. I'm especially excited to be here performing in front of the Duchess of Cambridge. This is genuinely true, this is so exciting. We were actually at school together. This is true. We were at the same school. I was a bit younger than you, but this is the first time I've seen you since school, so hello."
Middleton was seen sharing a laugh at his comment, but then he continued. "I don't know whether it's appropriate given the circumstances, but you were probably my first ever crush. Okay, definitely inappropriate. Your Highness is giving me a very sharp look."
However, Prince William was not so impressed by the comments made by the comedian, and addressed him after the show.
In a conversation with Jonathan Ross, Jack revealed that "William came over and he was very funny, he was very nice but very passive aggressive [and said] 'Oh, so you were flirting with my missus? Oh no that was very funny!'"
The comedian also added that he never stood a chance with Kate when they were at school, saying that "She was a lot older than me. She was in sixth form – it was never going to happen, I was in a head brace!"
