Prince William is clearly used to losing to Kate Middleton.

During a visit to Beigel Bake Brick Lane Bakery earlier this week, the pair went full Great British Bake Off on some of the shop’s famous bagels. Elias Cohen—whose father, Amnon, opened the shop in 1974—ultimately ruled that the Duchess of Cambridge had the better dough-ball-rolling technique. 

According to People, Prince William was…not surprised. “We’ll go with that,” he reportedly said. “The usual story.”

Looks about right.

The duchess, on the other hand, was not so sure. “Just wait until you see the aftermath,” she reportedly replied. “I had beginner’s luck. They are getting worse!”

Unfortunately, there’s been no official word on who took home the grand prize after all was said and done, but the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge did share their experience on Instagram on September 16.

“A visit to one of London's most iconic bagel shops to see behind the scenes,” the official Kensington Royal account wrote underneath the video. “@beigel_bake was forced to reduce their opening hours during the pandemic but is back to 24hrs and continuing to support their local community.”

The bagel shop wasn’t the only stop on their outing this Tuesday, September 15. Prince William and Kate Middleton ventured to multiple London staples to learn more about how local businesses are coping amid the coronavirus pandemic

Despite Prince William’s implication that his wife’s win was a usual occurrence,  he  had much better luck during a visit to Wales last month. While playing games at an arcade, the duke ended up scoring a ton of tickets during a ball-throwing game that the couple played together. Unfortunately, when the duchess attempted to grab a teddy from a claw machine—giving a thumbs -p when she thought she had it in the bag—the bear slipped at the last minute.
