Prince William’s favourite emoji is a lot more risqué than you’d think

By Staff

The Prince of Wales’ revealed his favourite emoji – known for its use in risque text messages – but quickly changed his answer after realising he’s ‘got to be all grown up’

The Royals are no different to us when it comes to texting – and it appears as though they also love the use of a risque emoji every now and then in their private messages.

When asked what his preferred cartoon text character was on BBC Radio 1’s ‘Going Home’, The Prince of Wales cheekily responded: “Is this a clean thing or is this a family one?” He continued: “I’ve been told not to say the aubergine, so I’ve got to pick something else. It would have been the aubergine, but I’m saying now — because I’ve got to be all grown up — it’s the one where the eyes go up and down and the mouth’s out”.

The Prince’s response caused a stir on social media, with royal fans across the country noting the suggestive nature of the emoji – which is known for its phallic appearance – and often used as a euphemistic or suggestive icon during raunchy text conversations, to represent a penis.

Joining Prince William to answer some light-hearted questions was his wife Kate Middleton, who made a less risqué choice in revealing her favourite emoji, as she admitted it was “the heart with then the crying emoji.” The Princess of Wales explained, “The sort of like ‘hysterical laughing’ when things have gone wrong.”

The couple continued to share some lesser-known details of their private lives, chatting with Radio 1 show hosts Jordan North and Vick Hope, as they hosted a forum in Birmingham to mark World Mental Health Day.

Sharing details about their culinary habits and joking about what they’d have for dinner that night, Kate said: “Curry or teriyaki or salmon”, while William added: “I can’t do too much spice. I start sweating. It’s not attractive. [Kate] has to bring it in gently because otherwise, I get too sweaty. It’s not a nice sight.”

Royal emoji use has been a hot topic for years, with previous headlines around the world putting the spotlight on Prince Harry’s unconventional preference for the ghost emoji.

In 2020, authors Carolyn Durand and Omid Scobie – royal Editor-at-Large at Harper’s Bazaar – reportedly found that Harry’s texts were “full of emojis, in particular the ghost emoji, which he often used instead of a smiley face” while writing the bombshell royal biography Finding Freedom on the Sussexes.
