Prince William Reveals His Kinda Embarrassing Music Taste

Jun 4 2014 - 9:00am

Prince William revealed his surprising music taste when he made a royal visit to Goole High School in East Yorkshire, England [1], on Wednesday. When asked what bands he likes, William told a group of young children that he "really likes" Coldplay and Linkin Park. Yes, you read that right: Linkin Park, aka the band that you were embarrassingly really into back in 2001. Couldn't music fan Prince Harry make a Spotify playlist for William to introduce him to more current bands? Or at least Harry could take him along the next time he drops by the Glastonbury Music Festival [2].

This isn't the first time William has opened up about his personal music taste. During his tour of Australia in April, the prince told a young rapper at a youth center about his favorite genres [3]. "I quite like house music," William said. "I like my house music. I like a bit of rock and roll, a bit of R&B. I'm not a big heavy metal fan. I'd like to be, but I'm not."
