The German television network RTL lashed out at the Prince William of Wales, pointing out in an article that the heir to the British throne preferred to wear a cooking apron rather than attend the funeral of his godfather, former King Constantine II of Greece.

"That's why Prince William skipped the funeral of his godfather Constantine?", asked the German network RTL, pointing the finger at the eldest son of King Charles, who was seen taking part in a cooking class in Berkshire.

"While many dignitaries from all over Europe were in Athens on Monday, January 16, for the funeral of the last king of Greece, Constantine, a very special guest was absent: Prince William, the late monarch's godfather!," writes the German network.

Kate Middleton 's husband preferred to cook not far from his residence, using a wooden spoon, to make Chicken Teriyaki, a Japanese dish, with children of mainly South Asian origin by his side.

Of course, his apron was a royal colour, royal blue. The appearance of Prince William at the "Together as One" charity in Berkshire was not a big surprise for the British, as reported by the country's press.

"Prince William, 40, whose family rift with Harry and Meghan is wider than ever following his brother’s score-settling memoir, spent the morning touring the Together as One headquarters in Slough ahead of its 25th anniversary next month," writes the Daily Mail newspaper.

"The organisation was founded in the late 1990s in response to several incidents of gang violence between young people from Asian backgrounds in the Berkshire town. Originally named Aik Saath, meaning Together As One in Hindi, Punjabi and Urdu, the charity has evolved to work with all young people, regardless of their faith or background," it added.

In other videos, the brother of "British palace rebel" Harry is pictured chatting with staff and volunteers at the foundation.

However, those nostalgic for the Crown expressed their disappointment that the godfather of the last king of Greece did not travel to Athens to attend the funeral of his godfather, commented the German publication.
