Paul Gascoigne plants kiss on Prince William after they meet at Pret A Manger

England footie legend Paul Gascoigne planted a kiss on Prince William after the pair met in a Pret A Manger restaurant on the south coast.

The Prince of Wales was in Bournemouth as part of his Homewards campaign, visiting various businesses and also Premier League football team AFC Bournemouth.

While at Pret William got stuck in making sandwiches and greeted staff and diners, including a certain footballing legend in Gazza.

The two men shook hands as William enquired about the 56-year-old, who has endured battles with addiction and mental health.

It is believed Gazza lives in the Bournemouth area, and as the two men's conversation came to an end, he broke all the royal rules by leaning in for a kiss – a bold move that was warmly reciprocated by William.

Elsewhere in the store William learned more about the work being carried out by The Pret Foundation to help break the cycle of homelessness.

He chatted to the company's CEO Pano Christou and learned about how Pret's unsold freshly-made food at the end of every day is given to people who need it most.

The chain also offers financial grants to grassroots charities and helps break the cycle of homelessness by providing support, training and employment through the Rising Stars programme.

Afterwards, William visited the Vitality Stadium, home of AFC Bournemouth to hear about how the club is working to support those at risk of homelessness in Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole – one of the areas being targeted by the Homewards programme.

Arriving for a roundtable discussion, he apologised for running late and quipped how he had been chatting to Gazza.

William's visit to Bournemouth comes just hours before his estranged brother Prince Harry is due to make his first appearance back on UK soil in a number of months.

Harry will celebrate the achievements and resilience of seriously-ill youngsters and their families who are supported by WellChild at the event in London tonight (Thursday, September 7).
