The Duke of Cambridge enjoyed a flirty exchange with 96-year-old great-grandmother over ice-cream in Scotland on Sunday.

Prince William, 38, politely fended off the advances of Betty Magee during a visit to the Queen’s Bay Lodge care home in Edinburgh where the flirtatious resident asked him for a kiss on the cheek.

He promised to return after the pandemic to give his elderly admirer a kiss and joked that she was making him ‘blush’.

The exchange, which was shared to Cambridges’ Instagram account, took place during a stop on the Prince’s trip to Scotland as residents of the care home snacked on ice cream and sipped tea in a marquee during the royal visit.

As the duke took a seat at her table in a marquee in the grounds of the care home, Betty said: ‘It’s customary in these parts to give a lady a kiss on the cheek.’

William replied: ‘Oh you are sweet. You’ll make me blush.’ 

Betty persisted, asking him to give her a peck as William laughed and covered his face in mock embarrassment.

He added: ‘When the rules relax more I will come back and give you a kiss on the cheek, Betty.’

William was then jokingly told by a care home staff member: ‘Could you stop flirting with my residents?’

To which William replied: ‘Sorry, I’m trying not to — I’m not sure who’s flirting more.’ 

After speaking to other OAPs and their families he later returned to her table as his oldest admirer tried her luck again.

William said: ‘Betty, I don’t know who is flirting more, me or you. Talking to you makes me blush. Is there whisky in your tea Betty?

Betty then reached out and stroked his cheek after whick William was jokingly told by a care home staff member: ‘Could you stop flirting with my residents?’

Afterwards Betty, who was siting with her granddaughter Kimberly Anderson, 38, said: ‘I wanted a kiss from a prince.

‘He asked how old I was and I told him I had just had my 96th birthday and I just asked him for a kiss. He said he couldn’t and then I reached out and stroked his cheek.

‘I could go for him in a good way. He is a bit of all right.’

Betty, who has a great-grandchild and three grandchildren, moved into the care home last September.

She is an ex-servicewoman having served in the Royal Air Force in the Second World War.

The exchange took place during William’s week-long trip to Scotland as residents of the care home snacked on ice cream and sipped tea in a marquee during the royal visit

William began a week-long visit to Scotland on Friday and was joined by the Duchess of Cambridge on Monday for the rest of the tour. 

Kate, 39, sported a £59.99 Zara blazer and pleated midi skirt by Hope Fashion in the colour of the Scottish flag for a visit to Turning Point Scotland, a social care charity in Coatbridge, North Lanarkshire. The couple learned about the support the organisation provides to those facing homelessness, mental health issues and substance abuse.

The visit is part of a royal charm offensive to help persuade Scotland to resist the demands of nationalists for independence.

It received its effective launch over the weekend when William gave a deeply personal speech in which he described the ‘special place’ that Scotland had in his heart, a country which he said held both some of his ‘happiest memories’ and his ‘saddest’.

It was at Balmoral where he learned of the death of his mother Diana, in 1997. And it was at St Andrews where he met and fell in love with Kate Middleton.

Today the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge spoke with individuals supported by Turning Point Scotland’s (TPS) Turnaround service.

Turnaround delivers targeted programmes to address the complex and interrelated issues of offending behaviours and problematic use of alcohol and other drugs, which often result in patterns of re-offending.

During their visit, The Duke and Duchess joined a video call with staff and service users from TPS’ Glasgow Overdose Response Team (GORT), to hear how the service works to reduce drug related deaths by providing real-time crisis support for people who have experienced a near fatal overdose.
