Crouch admitted that he has repeatedly failed to meet his wife’s expectations over the years. “I get it wrong quite often,”The athlete admitted. “I went for a spell of buying a certain brand of Mac, and I bought it every year—like a coat… for three years running.”Then, he confessed to his wife that the houseplant he gave her for one year was not what she expected.
Stark then asked the prince if he could beat a worse present than Crouch’s, and the royal confessed that he struggled to find the right gift for Kate Middleton early in their relationship. “I did get my wife a pair of binoculars once,” William began. “She’s never let me forget that. That was early on in the courtship, that was. I’ll tell you what, I think that sealed the deal, really. I think she fell for me at that point,”The prince laughed.
William maintained that they were excellent binoculars. “I was like, ‘Yeah, but these are really amazing. Look how far you can see.’ And she was looking at me going, ‘They’re binoculars, like, what’s going on?””The amusing story is funny, even though the prince may have been anxious about the unusual gift.
