Prince William is the eldest son of the heir to the throne. Although he displays a professional manner during public events, he is known, within the royal household, for his short temper. According to Daily Express royal correspondent Richard Palmer, although the Duke of Cambridge “does have a temper behind the scenes”, he is very accepting of criticism from members of the public over his conduct.

Speaking to Pandora Forsyth on the latest Royal Round-Up, Mr Palmer said: “Although he does have a temper behind the scenes sometimes, I think he is somebody who’s got broad shoulders.

“He’s shown himself in the past, when he got some criticism a few years ago over a skiing trip when the Commonwealth Day service was on”.

He added: “[and] also over the accusation that he was work shy.

“He took it all in the right way, that this just goes with the territory really, something I am just going to have to deal with over the years”.

Mr Palmer continued: “He might like it, but I think he’s mature enough to get over it”.

The conversation arose after Prince William was booed by thousands of Liverpool fans in the crowds at Wembley Stadium last week.

The crowds gathered as they prepared to watch the FA Cup Final.

People were heard booing the Duke as he shook hands with the players during coverage for the BBC.

Speaking about the incident, Mr Palmer said: “For what I understand, the Liverpool fans, they not only booed him [William], they booed the national athem, they booed the cup final hymn “Abide with Me.

“Abide with Me was sung at the Hillsborough service, after the deaths of those Liverpool football fans”.

Ahead of the traditional player handshakes, some members of the crowd jeered as William’s name was announced in the stadium.
