Prince William Was Called Out for ‘Flirting’ at His Latest Event (& It Wasn’t with Kate Middleton)

Prince William is continuing his royal tour of Scotland. And he’s getting pretty cozy with the locals, especially 94-year-old Betty Magee.

On Sunday, the Duke of Cambridge paid a visit to the Queens Bay Lodge residential care home, which is run by CrossReach, the Church of Scotland’s Social Care Council. During the event, the 38-year-old enjoyed ice cream and chatted with residents, including Magee and her granddaughter Kimberly. While speaking with the duo, Magee and William partook in some flirty banter.

“It's customary in these parts to give a lady a kiss on the cheek,” Magee told William per People. “Oh, you are sweet,” the duke responded. “You'll make me blush. When the rules relax more, I will come back and give you a kiss on the cheek, Betty.”

At one point, one staff member joked, “Could you stop flirting with my residents?" to which Will replied, "Sorry. I'm trying not to. I'm not sure who's flirting more.”

Lucky for us, the official Instagram of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge shared a short clip from the sweet interaction. Watch the video below.

“He’s a bit of alright,” Betty said of Prince William afterward, according to Town & Country. “I liked him...He can be my king any day.” She also added that she never got that “little kiss” from the duke.

“He was just so lovely,” Kimberley said of the conversation. “So content and really engaged and chatting with everybody which was really lovely to see...He was asking how things have been this last year. We were saying it’s been kind of difficult but things are getting better now.”

Shoot your shot, Betty.
