"Don't be put off by the size of Catherine's bread," William countered. "They’re enough to wedge the door." 09 of 11 REX/Shutterstock As the couple sat down to lunch, William joked with 23-year-old Chelsea Jenkins about a "protocol card" guests had received. "He just laughed about it," Jenkins says. "He said something about updating it." 10 of 11 Nigel Roddis/Getty Images Earlier in the day, around 15 miles away in Rotherham, the couple visited car-maker McLaren Automotive's new Composites Technology Centre, meeting those working in the factory and chatting to some of McLaren’s STEM Ambassadors about their work encouraging children to get involved in science-based learning and careers.
