Prince William says ‘innocent’ George asked him to explain ‘risqué’ joke at show

Prince William shared the moment his eldest son Prince George asked him to explain a naughty joke he heard at the Christmas pantomime.

Kate Middleton and Prince William took their three children Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis to a special performance of Pantoland at the London Palladium.

The children appeared to enjoy the production, which starred Julian Clary, Nigel Havers and Elaine Page, but it appears some of the jokes went over little George's head.

After, the Duke of Cambridge met the cast backstage and William shared that Prince George had asked his dad to explain a "risque joke".

Havers told the Mail: "Prince William had us all chuckling when he said that his eldest, George, had innocently enquired why everyone was laughing at one of Julian Clary’s more risque jokes.

"He said it may take him a while to explain his way out of that one!"

Before the performance started, Prince William paid tribute to Dame Barbara Windsor, who passed away on Thursday December 10 after a battle with dementia.

The heir to the throne said: "Before I go on, I want to pause and pay tribute to a true national treasure, Dame Barbara Windsor, who so sadly passed away last night.

"She was a giant of the entertainment world, and of course a legend on pantomime stages across the country including here at the London Palladium.

"And I know we’ll all miss her hugely."

Prince William then addressed the crowd, which was made up of key workers, and said: "We are here tonight for a very special performance. Special, because of you – the key workers here in the audience.

"You include community workers, volunteers, teachers, NHS staff, representatives from the emergency services and military, researchers working on the vaccine, people helping the homeless, those manning vital call centres, and staff from a wide range of frontline charities – to name but a few.

"You have given your absolute all this year, and made remarkable sacrifices.

"So too have your families, who I’m sure have seen far less of you than they would have liked.

"It’s lovely that you are all here together tonight.

"You are representative of the huge number of people across the UK who have stepped forward to make a difference this year in so many crucial ways.

"The country owes you a huge debt of gratitude."
