When students at an East Yorkshire high school in the U.K. asked Prince William which bands were his favorite, the 31-year-old royal gave a very surprising answer!
“I really like Coldplay, Linkin Park,” William told the assembled students, who he presented an award to on behalf of one of his charities. Needless to say, we were a little shocked to hear alternative rock group Linkin Park come out of the future king of England's mouth!
And although he declined a request to play the drums with members of the school's samba band, he admitted to playing a few musical instruments when he was younger!
"I used to play the piano, trumpet and drums when I was your age but I couldn't read music," he shared. "There's only so much you can remember from the top of your head."
The Prince also shared his distaste for certain supermarket foods. Pointing to a packet of instant pasta and cheese, William asked, "Have you tried this before? It's OK, it's not too bad. It's better than the beef stew and dumplings which is quite a heavy one."
The new father finished his visit with a team-building exercise in the school yard before delighting students and faculty with a helicopter send-off.
In case you're not familiar with the music of Linkin Park — and why we were surprised to hear William is a fan — listen to one of the group's most famous songs below!
