JEAN-CHRISTOPHE NOVELLI GETS SENTIMENTAL OVER MEETING PRINCES WILLIAM AND HARRY
THAT French smoothie Jean-Christophe Novelli goes all misty-eyed when he recalls his only meeting with princes William and Harry.
“I was at the next table in the Mirabelle restaurant when they were boys and were with their nanny. They were very well behaved and they practised their French on me. When they left they said “au revoir” and even gave me a kiss on the cheek. That kiss was emotional, knowing William would be an important man one day.”
At this point it’s best to leave the sensitive chef, as he starts to get embarrassing, the tears welling just as they do when he’s chopping his onions.
