THE Duke and Duchess of Cambridge gave one of Britain’s most famous bakers a much-kneaded boost yesterday.

William and Kate made Jewish bagels at Brick Lane’s Beigel Bake during a tour of London’s East End. The 24-hour bakery has become the staple of clubbers, shift workers and tourists drawn to its salt beef bagels but has been forced to reduce its opening hours during the pandemic.

They also visited the nearby East London Mosque and London Muslim Centre and chatted to volunteers who have been delivering meals to vulnerable members of the community.
