Turns out even the royals can struggle with gift giving!

Prince William joined a former British soccer star on his podcast to talk about one of the most pecuiliar gifts he gave Kate Middleton when they were courting.

A pair of binoculars.

"That was early on in the courtship that was. I wrapped them. They were really nice," he recalled.

"I was trying to convince myself about it. I was like, 'But these are really amazing, look how far you can see!' She was looking at me going, 'They’re binoculars, what's going on?’ It didn't go well. Honestly, I have no idea why I bought her a pair of binoculars."

Hilarious!
