On Sunday, Prince William continued his tour of Scotland at the Queens Bay Lodge Care Home in Edinburgh, where he enjoyed ice cream — and some flirty banter — with some of their residents.

When the Duke of Cambridge sat down with 96-year-old Betty Magee and her granddaughter Kimberley Anderson, Magee was anything but shy with the royal dad of three.

"It's customary in these parts to give a lady a kiss on the cheek," she told Prince William, 38, as he sat across from her at a table.

"Oh, you are sweet. You'll make me blush," William replied. "When the rules relax more, I will come back and give you a kiss on the cheek, Betty."

As their conversation continued, Prince William was jokingly told by a staffer, "Could you stop flirting with my residents?"

"Sorry," William said with a laugh. "I'm trying not to — I'm not sure who's flirting more."

William reunited with his wife of 10 years on Monday, when Kate, 39, joined him in Scotland. One of their anticipated outings will be a visit to St. Andrew's University, where the couple met.

William and Kate's visit to St. Andrews University will be a "trip down memory lane," Kensington Palace said. They are set to meet current students and discuss how they have endured in this difficult year and they are also set for some fun on the beach. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will join young carers from the local area for some land yachting.
