Lipreader spots Kate Middleton’s flirty exchange with William at basketball game

A lip reader has claimed to have spotted the moment the Prince and Princess of Wales had a flirtatious interaction while they were attending a basketball game in the US.

Prince William and Kate Middleton were spotted courtside at basketball game between the Miami Heat and Boston Celtics at TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts, United States on November 30.

The pair arrived about 15 minutes before tip-off and took their seats next to Massachusetts Governor-elect Maura Healey and Boston Mayor Michelle Wu.

William, 40, had an awkward glance at the big screen while the couple's faces were shown to the crowd on the big screen – as more “USA!” chants echoed – before both royals grinned and waved.

However, the pair still seemed to enjoy themselves as they laughed and smiled at each other, appearing to have a flirty exchange which has now been revealed by lip-reading expert, Jeremy Freeman (BAMPS).

According to Freeman, the interaction went as follows: "Kate says: I’d have to be better to play.

"Will covers his mouth when replying.

"Kate says: I’m just as good as you.

"Will says: No I’d say (covers mouth) Excellent – it’s a definite no!

"Kate says: Why?

"Will covers his face."

The royal couple were on their first trip to were met with boos and chants of "USA" on their first trip to the States since 2014.

The incident soon found its way onto social media, where fans of the game were quick to poke fun at the royal couple.

"What was the Point of Dumping the Tea in the Harbor if you’re just going to invite the Royals to a Celtics game 249 years later," one person wrote on Twitter.

ITV News' Royal editor Chris Ship suggested the backlash could be attributed to "strong Irish roots" in Boston.

However, the hostility also comes shortly after Prince Harry's godmother and the Queen's former lady-in-waiting was accused of racism, spelling potential trouble ahead for the Firm.

Lady Susan Hussey, 83, stepped down from her honorary palace role after she was accused of racial abuse by Ngozi Fulani, a Black British charity campaigner, after the royal aide repeatedly asked where she was from at a reception on Tuesday (November 29).

Ms Fulani, who works as an advocate for survivors of domestic abuse, described her experience with Lady Hussey as a "violation" and said she felt "trapped" during the exchange.

She tweeted that Lady Hussey "approached me, moved my hair to see my name badge" and then repeatedly asked her questions such as: "What part of Africa are you from?" and: "Where do your people come from?"
