Prince William has rare slip of the tongue

London - Prince William made a comment worthy of his gaffe-prone grandfather when he visited Japan House in London this week.

The Duke of Cambridge (34) asked a group of schoolchildren whether they had tried “much Chinese food” as they practised picking up edamame with chopsticks at the new centre celebrating Japanese culture.

He quickly corrected himself: “Um, Japanese food. Have you had much Japanese food? No? Not too much. Do you like sushi? It’s delicious, it really is yummy.”

The London site is the newest opening for Japan House, with outposts already in Los Angeles in the US and Sao Paulo in Brazil.

The centre, which houses a restaurant, shop and library, as well as exhibition and workshop spaces, aims to create a greater understanding of Japan among the British public, and to deepen cultural, social and economic bonds between the nations.
