Prince William and Kate compete in pretzel bake-off in Germany

By Hanna Fillingham

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge enjoyed putting their culinary skills to the test on Thursday (July 20) while in the German city of Heidelberg. The royal couple was given a lesson in making pretzels – a popular delicacy in the country, while at a traditional German market in the central square. And while the duo was both praised by local baker, Andreas Gobes, on their pastry making skills, it appears that Kate was "a little bit more talented" than her husband when it came to the finished product.

"This type of pretzel is a specialty for the region so we wanted to show them that. In this region it has a special shape - thin arms and a thick body - with salt and its red brown colour," he said.

Kate looked immaculate as ever, turning heads in a sunflower yellow lace fit and flare dress from Jenny Packham. The mom-of-two pared down the vibrant summery dress with a nude clutch and coordinating Monsoon wedges. With her freshly-cut hair styled into loose waves, it was another beautiful look from the Duchess, who has impressed with her on-trend and thoughtful sartorial choices throughout the royal tour of Poland and Germany.

Earlier in the day, the Duke and Duchess visited the German Cancer Research Institute where they were shown the world acclaimed work being carried out. Later on, Kate and William participated in a rowing race along the river, before ending the day at a reception at Clärchens Ballhaus, the last original dancehall in Berlin.
