Cape Town - He’s previously joked that he’s not a good cook – now Prince William has admitted he’s not strong in the arts and crafts department either.

During a recent royal engagement at The Passage, a London charity for the homeless, the 36-year-old father-of-three was asked to help prepare for a holiday party, US Weekly reports.

While being tasked with cutting the letter “E” for a “Welcome to Christmas Dinner” banner he said his eldest son, Prince George (5), doesn’t think too highly of his talents.

“My son knows I’m useless at this,” he said as his wife, the Duchess of Cambridge, laughed. “Catherine is the artsy one.”

Living up to her reputation as a bit of a domestic goddess the Duchess helped to make beaded bracelets for the charity. “Charlotte would love making these,” she said, referring to her and William’s three-year-old daughter.

In another reveal, 36-year-old Catherine recently let slip George’s nickname for his dad while talking to fans during a recent trip to Leicester, England, E! Online reports.

“Kate said William was playing football with the children last night and one of them said, I think it was George, ‘Are you playing football tomorrow, Pops?’ ” Leicester City Football Club fan Fiona Sturgess told reporters, the Daily Mail reports.
