Kate Middleton Once Had a Pretty Embarrassing Prank Pulled On Her at a Summer Job- Check

 

Royal author, Katie Nicholl has claimed that the Duchess of Cambridge once had a very surprising and ‘back-breaking’ job before meeting Prince William(opens in new tab), where her colleagues played a very embarrassing prank on her.

 

 

It turns out that before attending the University of St Andrews, where she met her future husband, Prince William, she worked as a deckhand for a fleet of Challenger Yachts. vThe surprising summer role is said to have been ‘back-breaking work’ but Kate ‘mucked’ in anyway, Nicholl claims in her book ‘Kate: The Future Queen.’

 

 

Cal Tomlinson, who reportedly worked as a skipper during Kate’s stint, told Nicholl that she was very ‘professional’ and ‘confident but very assuming’ though she did fall victim to a cruel and very mortifying prank. Tomlinson revealed that during one of her shifts Kate was giving clients a safety demonstration, showing them how to inflate their life jackets but was left red-faced.

 

 

“When she pulled the toggle, the thing inflated and a load of condoms fell out,” Cal said. He added that Kate was “mortified and very embarrassed”. “She took it more seriously than the others might have, but she wasn’t thrown off her stride. She was angry at first, but she settled down, and I don’t remember her ever getting them back.”

 

 

While Kate has traded her deckhand skills for royal duties, her love of water sports and sports, in general, has definitely not ebbed. She herself is a keen tennis player and has even revealed that her children have taken it up as a hobby. Though she may still get to show off her knowledge of boats and water safety as the Cambridge family spends their ‘normal’ summer holidays at the Norfolk coast.

 

 

Kate Middleton Once Had a Pretty Embarrassing Prank Pulled On Her at a Summer Job
Before heading off to St. Andrews University in Scotland—where she’d eventually meet and fall in love with future husband Prince William—Kate Middleton, like many of us, found a summer job to earn some extra cash. But, The Daily Express reports, Kate didn’t wait tables or work behind the desk in an office job: she worked as a deckhand on a fleet of Challenger yachts based in Southampton, a job the outlet calls “backbreaking.”

 

 

For her book Kate: The Future Queen, author and royal expert Katie Nicholl spoke to Cal Tomlinson, one of the skippers Kate worked under. Tomlinson says Kate “was very professional” and “mucked in,” but that at one point, Kate’s colleagues—who liked to have fun—played a prank on her. One of Kate’s duties on the job was giving clients a safety demonstration, which involved showing how the vessel’s life jackets worked.

 

 

“When she pulled the toggle, the thing inflated, and a load of condoms fell out,” Tomlinson says. “She was mortified and very embarrassed. She took it more seriously than the others might have, but she wasn’t thrown off her stride.”. Retaliation wasn’t Kate’s style, though: “She was angry at first, but she settled down, and I don’t remember her ever getting them back,” he says.

 

 

Despite the prank, Kate apparently still believes in the value of work at a young age: earlier this year, she revealed that her eldest son, Prince George, used his school holidays to move animal feed at the Cambridge’ country home in Norfolk, Anmer Hall.
“That was George’s job at half term—moving feed,” Kate said.
