While taking a sip in respect to fallen soldiers, the prince said instead of rum, he was surprised with a Jägerbomb.

This weekend, Prince William, 36, attended the event where those present are required to traditionally toast the fallen with a drink. Footage showed the prince taking a swig of rum with other attendees.

However, he revealed to the press that he had a shock after drinking from the hip flask because instead of rum, there was a Jägerbomb. William explained:

"I'll never be asked twice about drinking, it's very important. They tried to put a Jägerbomb in it! Imagine my surprise - burnt my throat."
