London (CNN)Britain’s Prince William is following in the footsteps of his gaffe-prone grandfather, Prince Philip, confusing Japanese food with Chinese food during a public appearance on Thursday.

英国威廉王子于本周四在公共场合露面时,犯了一个和他的祖父菲利普亲王一样的口误,把日本料理和中国菜搞混了。

At the opening of the Japan House cultural center in London’s Kensington, near Buckingham Palace, Prince William chatted to school students learning how to use chopsticks, according to footage broadcast in British media.

当天英国媒体播放的电视画面显示,在位于白金汉宫附近的伦敦肯辛顿的日本馆文化中心开幕仪式上,威廉王子与学生探讨如何使用筷子。

"Have you guys had much Chinese food?" he asked them, only to be met with an awkward pause.

随后他问道:“你们吃过很多中国菜吧?”现场一下子有些尴尬。

"Sorry, Japanese food. Have you had much Japanese food?" he said during a tour of Japan House, where he was accompanied by Japanese Deputy Prime Minister Taro Aso.

威廉王子赶紧更正说:“抱歉,是日本料理。你们吃过很多日本料理吧?” 当时他正由日本副首相麻生太郎陪同,参观日本文化会馆。

It’s the second time in six weeks that a British representative has confused the two countries, which have been rivals since the Japanese occupation of China during World War II and which continue to feud over disputed territory.

这是六周以来,第二次有英国代表犯了混淆中日的口误。自二战期间日本侵略中国以来,两国一直是竞争对手,双方在有争议的领土上不断有争执发生。

In July, newly appointed British Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt tried to impress officials in Beijing by talking about his Chinese wife, only to accidentally call her Japanese, in an embarrassing slip-up on his first mission abroad.

7月,新任命的英国外交大臣杰里米·亨特首次出访中国,本想“套近乎”的亨特不慎将他的中国妻子说成是日本人,这第一次外交出访的场面因此有一丝尴尬。

"My wife is Japanese," he said, before realizing his gaffe, and then adding "my wife is Chinese."

他说,“我的妻子是日本人”,发现口误后,他赶紧改口说:“我妻子是中国人。”

Prince William, who rarely slips up in his public appearances, made a success of the rest of his visit, sipping on some sake rice wine during a toast, and trying some "delicious and amazing" salmon sashimi prepared specially by famed chef Akira Shimizu, the Press Association reported.

威廉王子在公开场合露面时很少出错。尽管这次参观中有这个小瑕疵,但余下的参观行程都非常成功,他在敬酒时喝了一些清酒,还品尝了名厨Akira Shimizu主理的三文鱼生鱼片,据美联社报道。

"My wife and I love sushi," he said. "We might have to come down here for lunch when there’s no one else down."

“我妻子和我都很喜欢寿司。当这里没有其他人时,我们可能会来这享用午餐,”威廉王子说。
