Prince William may be a royal, but that doesn't mean he's never made a romantic blunder.

The Duke of Cambridge, 38, shared some interesting details about his early days of dating his wife, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, 38, during a recent appearance BBC's "That Peter Crouch Podcast."

His hosts, Peter Crouch, Chris Stark and Tom Fordyce, began discussing the worst presents they've given their partners, and one shared that he once gifted a tree — which prompted the question to William, "Can you beat a worse present than that?"

"I probably can," the duke responded. "I did get my wife a pair of binoculars once. She's never let me forget that."

"That was early on in the courtship, that was," William chuckled. "I tell you what, I think that sealed the deal. She fell for me at that point."

"I think I was convincing myself about it," he continued. "I was like, 'These are really amazing! Look how far you can see!' And she started looking at me going, 'They're binoculars. What's going on?' ... It didn't go well."
