Prince William texted Radio 1 for a shout out and it's the best thing we've heard all day

Prince William just admitted that, like most of us (let's face it), he's asked for a shout out on Radio 1 and it's just made our day.

Wills made the admission on BBC Radio 1, as he and Kate surprised Adele Roberts ahead of her London Marathon run on Sunday.

After he and the Duchess read out the official charts (very expertly we might add), he got grilled by Scott Mills.

Asked whether he'd ever texted in the show, he admitted he'd actually had not one, but two shout outs.

Wills said, 'I have texted in. Under a different name obviously, I’m not telling you what it is. I texted on Adele’s show, most recently, when I was driving to work’, to which Kate joked, 'What were you doing texting in the car?'

He backtracked like a pro, adding ‘Obviously I stopped in a lay by and I have not texted while driving because that is illegal’. Who doesn't love a bit of royal bants?

Oh, and he once had a 'sweaty man hug with Tinie Tempah' at Radio 1’s big weekend in Bangor. And perhaps had Kate on his shoulders to watch the gig, though that may possibly have been more bants.

Now all we need to do is find out what name he used for the shout out. Who's got money on Big Willie?

Although she's always loved fashion - she used to create scrapbooks of her favourite trends and looks, including Sienna Miller and Kate Moss' boho phase - her first job was at, sourcing the best deals for everything from restaurants to designer sales.

However she quit after two years to follow her true passion, fashion journalism, and after many years of internships and freelance stints at magazines including Red, Cosmopolitan, Stylist and Good Housekeeping, landed her dream job as the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire UK.

Her favourite part of the job is discovering new brands and meeting designers, and travelling the world to attend events and fashion shows. Seeing her first Chanel runway IRL at Paris Fashion Week was a true pinch-me moment.
