KATE, Duchess of Cambridge, revealed the one skill she has never been able to master, despite having tried very hard while pregnant of Prince George.
Kate stunned royal fans in Bradford revealing she failed at knitting a “very special jumper” for her firstborn. As she was meeting families taking part in projects organised by Older Yet Wiser, an organisation supporting grandparents with child-caring responsibilities, Kate opened up on her attempts at knitting.
The Duchess told grandmothers showing off their crocheting skills: “I tried knitting when I first had George.
“I tried to knit him a very special jumper, but I got halfway down and it splattered.
“It’s such an amazing skill.”

During her three pregnancies, Kate suffered from Hyperemesis Gravidarum – severe morning sickness.
While the Duchess never picked up on knitting for her children, she was given the chance last December to show off her cooking skills and reveal she often share the kitchen with Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.
Taking part in the one-hour BBC special A Berry Royal Christmas, Kate told Mary Berry her children helped to prepare pizza – following one of the baking expert’s recipes.
Asked whether the Duchess cooks with her children, Kate said: Yes, I really enjoy it.

“Again, for them to be creative, for them to try and be as independent as possible with it.
“Actually one of the last things we cooked, together, was your pizza dough.
“We made pizzas with your pizza dough recipe…
“They absolutely loved it.

Kate and William’s children spend so much time in the kitchen with their parents that it influenced the vocabulary of Prince Louis, born in April 2018.
Ms Berry was also pleased to learn that one of the little Cambridge’s earliest words was “Mary”.
Kate said: “One of Louis’ first words was Mary, because right at his height are all my cooking books in the kitchen bookshelf.
“And children are really fascinated by faces, and your faces are all over your cooking books and he would say ‘That’s Mary Berry’… so he would definitely recognise you if he saw you today.”

During Kate and William’s visit to Bradford, the royals focused their attention on family, the importance of a sense of community and employment.
At Bradford City Hall, the pair met with young adults, job-seekers and local business owners providing help on finding jobs.
Later in the day, Kate and William visited the Khidmat Centres, which hosts several associations helping the community and the most disadvantaged with workshops and charitable initiatives.
There, the Cambridges learned more about projects hosted by Better Start Bradford.

The association has created more than 20 projects aimed at pregnant women and families with children under the age of four.
Their work was particularly interesting to Kate, who has been working for months on her Early Years programme looking into the impact the first five years of life can have on people as they grow up.
In May 208, the steering group of experts Kate created earlier that year met for the first time to discuss how she and the Royal Foundation could help improve chances of success in life for all young people.
And in late November, Kate carried out a two-day hospital placement to see for herself just how many challenges midwives in the maternity unit face on a daily basis.
