Unexpected celeb hobbies as Kate Middleton admits sweet gesture for George backfired

We all know about their day jobs, but away from the stage or screen our fave celebs have many a hobby or passion.

One person not afraid to give thing a go is the Duchess of Cambridge herself, with the Royal proving herself to be an accomplished photographer and artist.

However, another hobby she tried out, with less success, was knitting – admitting that she tried to pick up the skill when pregnant with her eldest son, Prince George.

She intended to make a jumper for her son, but she was less than successful – describing the craft as an “amazing skill.”

But Kate Middleton, is not the only celeb who has unusual hobbies, with some of the world’s biggest stars spending their free time doing impressive, and even strange, things!

With her incredible music career, Beyoncé is adept at making money, but do you also know she has a hobby making honey?

In an interview with Vogue, the singer, 40, revealed her surprising hobby as a beekeeper.

She said: “I know it’s random, but I have two beehives. Real ones. I’ve had them at my house for a while now. I have around 80,000 bees and we make hundreds of jars of honey a year.”

Despite her fanbase being called ‘The Beyhive’, that’s not the reason she chose the hobby – she started keeping beehives for two of her children.

She said: “I started the beehives because my daughters, Blue and Rumi, both have terrible allergies, and honey has countless healing properties.”

There was a rumour that Paris, 41, also restored vintage radios – however, she revealed that it was just a rumour in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter.

She said: “I heard that rumour too and I don’t even — like, I’ve never seen a vintage radio. I don’t know who made that up. But I guess people love to make up stories about me. Yeah. , it’s just another example. But it’s so random.”
