Cheeky Prince William admirer, 96, makes him blush by asking for ‘kiss on cheek’

The Duke of Cambridge has promised to return to a Scottish care home after the pandemic to give a flirtatious 96-year-old resident a kiss on the cheek.

William politely fended off the advances of the elderly admirer as he joked “you are making me blush”.

William was in Scotland after being appointed Lord High Commissioner of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland.

Residents at Queen’s Bay Lodge, which is run by the Kirk, snacked on ice cream and sipped tea as they enjoyed the royal visit.

But it was great-grandmother and ex-servicewoman Betty Magee, 96, who stole William’s attention.

As the duke took a seat at her table in a marquee in the grounds of the care home, she said: “It’s customary in these parts to give a lady a kiss on the cheek.”

William replied: “Oh you are sweet. You’ll make me blush.”

Betty persisted, asking him to give her a peck as William laughed and covered his face in mock embarrassment.

He added: “When the rules relax more I will come back and give you a kiss on the cheek Betty.”

After speaking to other OAPs and their families he later returned to her table as his oldest admirer tried her luck again.

William said: “Betty, I don’t know who is flirting more, me or you. Talking to you makes me blush. Is there whisky in your tea Betty?”

Afterwards Betty, with her granddaughter Kimberly Anderson, 38, said: “I wanted a kiss from a prince.

“He asked how old I was and I told him I had just had my 96th birthday and I just asked him for a kiss. He said he couldn’t and then I reached out and stroked his cheek.

“I could go for him in a good way. He is a bit of all right.”

Betty, who has a great-grandchild and three grandchildren, moved into the care home last September.

She served in the Royal Air Force in the Second World War.

Earlier at the Grassmarket Community Project the duke tried his hand at woodworking, working on a stand for a nursery stool.

He met Stephen, a Grassmarket member in his late 20s with autism, who is also a volunteer at the project and is on the woodwork apprenticeship.

William joked about a “Blue Peter” moment, admitting: “I’m better at destroying things than creating things.”

William began a week-long visit to Scotland on Friday and the Duchess of Cambridge will join him on Monday for the rest of the tour.
