Teenagers have long complained about their embarrassed parents – and it seems the royals are among them.
Although now almost 40 years old, Prince William once told of a time his late mother Princess Diana tried to organize a special treat for him when he was 12 or 13 years old.
But the surprise didn’t quite go to plan as it embarrassed young William because his reaction to it was less than enjoyable.
The second heir to the throne revealed his special treatment in 2017 in a documentary to mark the 20th anniversary of his mother’s death.
He recounted that as a boy, he was very fond of supermodels and plastered posters of them all over the walls of his bedroom.
So, as a special treat, Diana arranged for supermodels Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell and Christy Turlington to wait for him when he got home from school.
But instead of being overjoyed, the shock of seeing the models nearly sent him down the stairs.
He told the show Diana, Our Mother: Her Life and Legacy: “I was probably a 12- or 13-year-old boy who had posters of them on his wall.

“And I was red in the face, didn’t know what to say, was a bit clumsy and I think I pretty much fell down the stairs on the way up.
“I am absolutely and completely a horrible type. But it was a very funny memory.”
And in the film, William’s younger brother Prince Harry says that their mother loves to tease her sons.
He explains: “That childish, fun element really comes into play when she spends time with us.
“Our mother was a perfectly normal child… All I could hear was her laughter in my head. It was the kind of crazy laugh when only pure happiness showed on her face. “
However, that was not the only time Diana conspired to embarrass William.
For his 13th birthday, she ordered her son a cheeky ‘boob cake’.
The family’s former chef Darren McGrady told Hello! magazine: “I went to work that morning and went down to the fridge, opened the door, and I just came face-to-face with the biggest boobs I’ve ever seen in my life.
“The Duchess ordered a cake for William’s 13th birthday.
“William just turned bright red.”
But Harry absolutely loved it and told Diana he wanted one too, reports Daily mail.
