Prince William Is Not Allowed a Playstation

We always knew Kate wears the trousers, so no surprise that video gaming for William is out of the question

Prince Harry got into trouble when he compared killing enemy fighters to playing computer games, but his brother William is not allowed one of the gadgets.

For on a visit to the BAFTA headquarters in London today, he admitted that Kate would be likely to object if he were to acquire a new Playstation 4, which goes on sale on November 29 in Britain.

It's very addictive," he said, according to a report on the Daily Express, as he was given a sneak preview of the new gaming platform. "I'd like to get one but I'm not sure how my wife would feel about it."

He was at BAFTA's headquarters in Piccadilly to launch a new scheme to help, talented young movie and TV professionals and games designers develop their skills.

Endorsing the Give Something Back campaign, he said he was particularly pleased to see the leading lights of the games industry sharing their insights into the art of making games with schoolchildren.

"Our developers are more in demand than ever before, so I hope the young people take inspiration from today's workshop, and get a taste for what a career in games might be like.," he said.

"I know that I, for one, as an enthusiastic but quite useless  gamer, look forward to playing the weird and wonderful games which these young people dream up in the future."
