Prince William, also known as the Duke of Cambridge, has picked up yet another title: “His Royal Thighness.”
The duke earned the unique label from none other than Kentucky Fried Chicken after the royal was spotted peering into the windows of the fast food joint during an engagement on Tuesday.
But the photos of the visit attracted more attention after KFC’s UK and Ireland Twitter account tweeted out pictures of William ― whom we’re dubbing Lord of the Fried ― alongside funny comments.
“William whispered quietly to himself; ‘Oh, I just can’t wait to be wing,’” the account tweeted, borrowing a line from “The Lion King” song “I Just Can’t Wait To Be King.”
The KFC account followed up with another tweet: “I’m sad I didn’t call him His Royal Thighness in the main tweet tbh.”
Other people on Twitter had fun with the photos:
The prince was recently asked in the BBC One documentary, “Football, Prince William and Our Mental Health,” if he liked the fast food restaurant, and his answer was enthusiastic, though he admitted it had been a while since he had last eaten there.
“I like Nando’s, everyone likes a Nando’s,” he said.
