Prince William

His mother was famously a Duran Duran fan in the 1980s and the Duke of Cambridge revealed yesterday that he too keeps up to date with pop trends.

Asked by schoolchildren what music he listened to, Prince William replied: ‘I really like Coldplay, Linkin Park.’ But he declined a request by pupils in a samba band to join them and play a drum.

William spent more than an hour at Goole High School, East Yorkshire, where he launched a new award for primary pupils as royal patron of the charity SkillForce, which draws on the values and skills of ex-forces personnel to inspire young people.

The prince also chatted to pupils taking part in the Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme. – Daily Mail
