Kate Middleton snubbed Josh Widdicombe’s invitation to be on his parenting podcast

Josh Widdicombe revealed on Good Morning Britain that Kate Middleton snubbed the chance to appear on his podcast.

The 38 year old comedian revealed to GMB co-hosts Richard Madeley and Susanna Reid that the Duchess of Cambridge swiftly turned him down after he invited her to come onto the show as a guest.

Josh co-hosts Parenting Hell with Rob Beckett and the duo discuss every aspect of having children.

Susanna brought up that while Josh had many great guests, there was one he hadn’t been able to convince to come on the show. She said: “There is one guest that you haven’t managed to persuade and that is Kate Middleton.”

Josh then joked: “Yes, there’s a lot of guests we haven’t managed to persuade. But particularly, Kate.”

Discussing what happened when he Kate and Prince William after he performed at the Royal Variety Performance, Josh said: "You have to stand there and meet the royals and it was Kate and Will.

"My agent said I bet you 100 quid you won’t ask her to come on your podcast. I thought I’m not going to let this opportunity go.”

Josh seized his chance to ask Kate about the opportunity, but the Duchess did not jump at the chance and in fact, she "very quickly" moved onto the next performers.

He recalled: “So Will goes past and then Kate comes up and she brings up parenting as it’s what I spoke about in the stand up and I though this is my chance.

“I said we’d love to have you on the podcast and I’ve never seen someone more underwhelmed at a question in my life. She moved very quickly on to the cast of Matilda I tell you that for free.”

Susanna then asked if Josh thinks the Duchess listens to his podcast, as she’s passionate about discussing parenthood and the early years of children’s lives.

Josh quipped: “Not to my knowledge. If she does, she’s playing a very canny game of not knowing what it was.”

Kate recently celebrated her 40th birthday with three new portraits that her family helped chose to appear in the National Portrait Gallery.

After the special portraits were unveiled to mark the momentous occasion, royal experts revealed that the Queen has a big celebration planned for William’s 40th Birthday in June.
