Kate and William got into the competitive spirit as they were judged on their technique.

As well as using hand sanitiser, the couple also wore aprons and face masks.

Elias Cohen, whose father Amnon founded the bakery in 1974, told William about his technique: “Not bad. I think Kate wins.”

The Duke replied: “We’ll go with that. The usual story.”

Kate added: “Just wait until you see the aftermath! I had beginner’s luck. They are getting worse!”

A video was shared to the Kensington Royal Instagram page showing Kate and William helping to make bagels.

The post read: “A visit to one of London’s most iconic bagel shops to see behind the scenes!

“@beigel_bake was forced to reduce their opening hours during the pandemic but is back to 24hrs and continuing to support their local community.”

In the footage, Kate and William help prep the dough before they’re made into a bagel shape.

However, some fans noticed the pair weren’t wearing hair nets or gloves during the video.


What did fans say?

One person commented: “Where are the gloves when you handle food?”

Another wrote: “Does no one wear hair nets and hats and no jewellery with stones in this bakery?”

“I don’t think you need to worry about gloves.”

Another added: “You don’t wear gloves when you’re shaping dough. The dough would stick to them.
