We’re used to seeing the royal family decked out in tuxedos and tiaras, riding in carriages and attending international galas. But sometimes they let slip a little tidbit that makes them seem more human. When the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge recently visited Cyprus, the duchess revealed that Prince William perhaps gets a little sloppy when he’s eating a slice of pizza.

This week, William and Kate officially opened the Oasis recreation center, a relaxing space for young British military personnel who live in shared housing. People magazine reported that William, himself a military veteran, noticed the room’s bright yellow couches and teased the soldiers to “keep the pizza off the sofas!” 

Kate’s response? “You’re a nightmare with that!”

Come on, William. The future king probably has a very elegant dining room table he could eat pizza on, but like the rest of us, it seems like Diana and Charles’ eldest son likes to flop on the couch with his cheesy meal.

We don’t know which toppings the royals prefer on pizza. Gold-flecked pepperoni? Diamond-crusted mushrooms? But it’s royally fun to check out what the royal family eats at home.
