Royal squabbles over triple word scores! Yes, even the Duke of Duchess of Cambridge have private arguments from time to time. According to a new documentary, Kate Middleton and husband of nearly two years Prince William bicker over at least one issue: Scrabble! In documentary Our Queen (about Prince William's grandmother Queen Elizabeth), Middleton, 31, and William, 30, are by nature rather competitive. That comes out during quiet nights at home when the pair, now expecting their first child in July, attempt to play the popular word game.
In the documentary, Olympic boxer Anthony Ogogo recalls a revealing conversation he had with Middleton during a Team GB reception during last summer's London Olympics. "She said when they play Scrabble they don’t usually finish a game, because somebody got in a mood and slammed it shut!" Ogogo reports, laughing, according to the Daily Mail.
Board game throw-downs aside, the twosome are mostly focused these days on their baby-to-be -- with Middleton adapting her fitness routine (think yoga), yielding to her cravings (sweets!) and soaking up her time with William when he's not on duty for the Royal Air Force.
