The Duke of Cambridge has revealed that as a little boy he dreamed of becoming a policeman, an astronaut or a firebreather.
The Prince made the revelation on the second day of his trip to Japan, after meeting the Japanese astronaut Soichi Noguchi, at an event to promote UK innovation.
Andy Palmer, Aston Martin’s chief executive, who was compere at the event, asked if the Duke, as a helicopter pilot, had ever considered going into space.
William replied: “When I was younger, I dreamed of being an astronaut. “But no offence, I also thought I was going to be a policeman one day – that was as a very small boy.
“I’ve always wanted to say I’d be something like a fire-breather, but that’s far too alternative.”
The three men put on red “Happi” gowns for a traditional sake barrel-breaking ritual to mark the start of the year-long “Innovation is Great campaign”.
The campaign is aimed at generating partnerships between the UK and Japan.
The Duke also gave his first speech of this Far East tour, highlighting how Japan and Britain have influenced each other over the centuries.
But he also added that he was sad his wife Kate and son George could not be with him.
