This week while out on a royal outing, Prince William got served, but not in the way you would think.

Prince William appeared alongside Kate Middleton for her ongoing “Hold Still” photography project, created back in May in response to living during a pandemic. This appearance was specifically set to engage with the public, answering questions and hearing their thoughts on the project.

But meeting with the public was apparently not the only errand on Prince William’s list.

While out, Prince William was photographed on the sidewalk outside of a Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) restaurant, peering in presumably at the menu and several people eating just on the other side of the window.

KFC, of course, could not pass such an opportunity up.ย 

Including an image of Prince William looking in through their window, KFC UK & Ireland captioned it by taking a line from The Lion King:ย 

“William whispered quietly to himself:”

“‘Oh, I just can’t wait to be wing’.”

Though this was hilarious enough on its own, KFC soon felt the remorse so many of us have felt at one time or another when we realized we’d missed an opportunity.

KFC tweeted again:ย 

“I’m sad I didn’t call him ‘His Royal Thighness’ in the main tweet tbh (to be honest).”ย 

Whether dubbed “His Royal Thighness” by KFC or “Lord of the Fried” by HuffPost, the public had a field day making their own contributions.

Some also noted how hilarious it must have been for the people inside of the restaurant.

People won’t be letting Prince William forget his longing look at the Colonel’s secret recipe anytime soon.

The one thing everyone wants to know though is did he get a bucket of chicken?
