It turns out Prince William is a big fan of the Winter Olympics – and Lindsay Vonn – but he can’t  remember her last name.

In the Reuters video below, Will chats with Olympic ice dancing champion Tessa Virtue (beginning around the 2:35 mark) at a barbeque in Ottawa, Canada during the royal couple’s whirlwind tour of North America. He confesses his love for the Winter Olympics, saying he watched the Vancouver Games “nearly every night at home.” At the 3:23 mark, while discussing Alpine skiing, he says, “There was an American, Lindsey…”

There is a pause, before someone lends Will a hand, saying “Lindsey Vonn.”
