Kate Middleton CRACKS crossword about the royal family
Clever Kate Middleton completed a student well-wisher’s crossword puzzle – with a very royal answer.
Second year student Jack Baird, 21, caught Kate’s eyes waving a copy an old crossword puzzle from The Times.
The Duchess, who has a 2:1 degree in the history of art, grabbed the print out and offered to help the stuck student.
Luckily for Kate, the answer was one that she knew and was “thrilled” to complete the tricky puzzle.
Jack said afterwards: “I was stuck on a clue, it was seven down which was ‘Forerunner of the Sovereign Grant, the funding provided to support the official duties of The Queen‘.
“It was two words of five and four letters. I couldn’t get the second word.
“I gave it to Kate and asked her as I’m sure she would have known. And she said it was ‘Civil List’.
“She was very excited. It didn’t look like she was going to get it for a moment.
“She looked thrilled. I think she thought ‘I wouldn’t live this down if I get this wrong’.
“I’m really chuffed. I’m going to frame it.”
