New dad Prince William swapped the bottles of milk and dirty nappies over the weekend to join his mates celebrating a stag do full of bottles of beer and dirty jokes. The Duke of Cambridge was granted time away from the sleepless nights of new fatherhood, enjoying instead, a sleepless night away in Devon (well, if he’s anywhere near as good at partying as his brother Harry!)
The heir to the throne joined 15 friends as they joined the commoners aboard Friday’s London to Exeter train. As they chugged to the West, they were spotted chugging cans of beer and mini bottles of gin. The gents had secured themselves a private carriage for the trip, but curious onlookers still managed to catch a glimpse of our future king;
“I walked through the carriage on the way to the buffet car and spotted William with a bunch of chaps swigging beer like it was going out of fashion,” a member of the public told the Sun.
However, despite covering the front pages following his wedding to Kate Middleton, and the birth of their three week old son George, not all of the passengers realised they were in such privileged company. The hungry traveller who made the star spot added: ‘
‘There was an older man next to me who had no idea William was sitting just yards away. He nodded towards them and said, ‘There’s a right bunch of lads in there. ”
It’s refreshing to see a member of the royal family showing us how it’s done when it comes to stag dos. Celebrating the upcoming nuptials of good friend Guy Pelly, Wills really showed us that Britain has a lot to be proud of when it comes to celebrating. We wonder if he took inspiration from our stag packages to nearby Torquay to make the most of his first weekend away since the birth of the little prince. As a trained soldier, you just know he’d rule at the stag do favourites of paintball or clay pigeon shooting!
