When Prince William isn’t connecting to the world virtually, he’s baking up a storm.

The Duke of Cambridge attended his first public royal engagement recently after spending three months in lockdown, Hello! Magazine reports.

During his visit to the King’s Lynn Ambulance Station at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Norfolk, the 37-year-old applauded the staff for their hard work during the coronavirus pandemic. He also discussed how the pandemic had affected the royal family mentally.

The father of three went on to reveal the hobby that kept him occupied during the lockdown.

“I’m worried about the waistline of the nation as well with all the chocolate and cakes,” Prince William chuckled. “I’ve done a lot of baking at home – chocolate goes down very well.”

During a videocall at Easter, William said he and wife Kate and their three children – Prince George (6), Princess Charlotte (5), and Prince Louis (20) – were spending much of their time in the kitchen, according to People.

“There’ll be a lot of chocolate being eaten here, don’t worry!” the Duke said during the video call.

The royal, who’s known for his sweet tooth, shares a love for chocolate biscuit cake with his grandmother the queen and his stepmom Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, Express UK reports.
