There’s nothing more familiar than the sound of a rooster crowing in the morning for these famous royal couples. When Prince William and Kate Middleton toured Ulster University’s Magee Campus’ petting zoo during their trip to Northern Ireland in September, the two had a bit to say about the animals they have. “We’ve had lots of animals during lockdown,” Kate said, per People. “During lockdown, animals are often like therapy.” William also added the two had even gotten hold of “lots of chickens.”
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, meanwhile, weren’t shy of showing off their son Archie’s own chicken coop, which is known as “Archie’s Chick Inn.” During a March interview with Oprah Winfrey, the couple revealed that they rescued some hens from a farm factory, adding that it was a part of their “down to basics” life. While the chickens are a common thread between the two couples — something they both care about — William and Kate also have a dog and a pet hamster named Marvin. William also shared that his son, Prince George, is “obsessed” with snakes. “He’s going to be so upset he missed this,” he noted while at the petting zoo.
Now that we know what’s common between the Sussexes and the Cambridges, we can’t wait to see what their family reunion will look like. Besides, they always have so much to catch up on, and having chickens in common might just be a good start to the conversation.
