PRINCE William and wife Kate were jokingly heckled by TV favourite Alison Hammond yesterday as the fun-loving Royals played a game of darts.
They were joined on the oche by ITV’s This Morning star in a visit which also saw William taking a phone booking for a restaurant.
The Prince and Princess of Wales, who are notoriously competitive with one another, were taken to separate dart boards and handed arrows.
Kate later confided to a fan on the Birmingham tour: “Thankfully we weren’t up against each other, which was a relief.”
William’s skills fell short of late Scottish darts great Jocky Wilson, as he was paired with Brummie Alison, who laughed as his shots fell to the floor.
She cackled: “This is the best day of my life.”
She invited William home for a Jamaican dinner before chortling Wills, 40, turned to the dartboard and joked: “This is how I spent university.”
He then admitted he wished he had “done more work and watched less TV” when he was younger.
And he revealed that one of his greatest regrets was not learning to break-dance.
The couple were speaking to youngsters at the Rectory pub overlooking the city’s jewellery quarter before visiting the 180 bar downstairs.
One well-wisher outside told Kate: “I’m in awe of you in those heels. How did you play darts?”
Looking down at her burgundy stilettos, she laughed: “I am tottering a bit.”
Earlier in the day, the Prince of Wales took a phone booking at the Indian Streatery restaurant from an unsuspecting customer.
Half an hour later, when William and Kate, 41, Vinay Aggarwal and wife Ankita Gulati turned up, oblivious to the fact they had been talking to the Prince.
Mr Aggarwal, 32, from Colindale, North London, said: “I didn’t recognise his voice at all.”
