The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge burst out laughing as they tried their hand at making pretzels.

The royal couple were given a culinary lesson when they visited the picturesque German city of Heidelberg to celebrate the local culture, food and people.

William and Kate rolled out the pastry into long sausage shapes then were shown how to flick and cross them over in one movement to create the snack’s classic shape.

Local baker Andreas Gobes, part of a guild whose members put on the pastry display, said: “Catherine was a little bit more talented than William but they both did a great job.

“This type of pretzel is a speciality for the region so we wanted to show them that.

“In this region it has a special shape – thin arms and a thick body – with salt and it’s red brown colour.”

The Duke and Duchess visited Heidelberg, which is twinned with Cambridge, while on a three-day tour of Germany.

The city is located on the riverside and overlooked by the ruins of its famous castle

The royal couple wandered through the central market square, where a British-German market offered local food and drink.

This evening they will attend a Berlin reception in the mirrored hall of Clarchens Ballroom opened in 1913.

It is one of the last remaining old ballrooms in Berlin, and will play host to a reception for some of the most creative and innovative names in the world of art, culture, style, fashion and technology.
