Prince William jokingly scolded for ‘flirting’ with 96-year-old admirer

Kate Middleton may have some competition.

Over the weekend, Middleton’s husband, Prince William, visited Queen’s Bay Lodge, an Edinburgh, Scotland residential care home where he visited with a 96-year-old woman Betty and her granddaughter, Kimberly.

“It’s customary in these parts to give a lady a kiss on the cheek,” Betty told William, 38, when he sat down to visit with her.

“Oh, you are sweet. You’ll make me blush,” the Duke of Cambridge replied, per People magazine. “When the rules relax more, I will come back and give you a kiss on the cheek, Betty.”
