Imran Khan, who was a good friend of William’s mother Diana, Princess of Wales, knows William and his brother Harry since they were a young kid. William reportedly played cricket with the ex-cricketer Imran Khan as a child.

Daily Mail reported,

The former cricket star recalled a conversation with William 22 years ago about his ambitions of becoming prime minister. On his hopes of becoming a cricketer, Mr Khan said: ‘I went with my mother to see a Test match.

My cousin was playing and he scored a century and I told my mother I wanted to be a Test cricketer. I never realised how difficult it was to eventually become one. Similarly, when I told you that I wanted to succeed I didn’t realise it would take me 22 years.

Continuing from Daily Mail’s Report,

William recalled how everyone laughed at a gathering in Richmond-upon-Thames in 1996 when the former Sussex and Worcestershire cricketer announced his political ambition to the then teenage Prince William and Diana.

Diana had taken him to see Mr Khan and his then wife, Jemima Goldsmith, at the Goldsmith family home in Richmond. Mr Khan, who was finally elected Pakistani Prime Minister in July 2018, suggested it had been as hard a slog as his earlier career as a Test cricketer.

‘When I went with my mother to see a Test match my cousin was playing and he scored a century and I told my mother I wanted to be a Test cricketer,’ he said. ‘ I never realised how difficult it was to eventually become one. Similarly, when I told you that I wanted to succeed I didn’t realise it would take me 22 years.’

William, 37, replied: ‘Sure. It’s not so easy.’
