GLASGOW, Scotland (AP) - His family may have castles to choose from, but Prince Edward, alas, is a man without a pingpong table.

The prince was among several members of the royal family to attend the Commonwealth Games on Monday. Prince William and his wife, the Duchess of Cambridge, watched gymnastics and boxing with William’s younger brother, Harry.

Prince Edward, son of Queen Elizabeth II, brought his family to table tennis, among other events. They watched Nigeria beat India 3-1 in a men’s team bronze-medal match.

The prince calls the sport “a game that you need to sit close to in order to appreciate the speed and the skill.” He adds that he does not have a table at home and that was one reason he brought his children there. He wanted to “introduce them to a couple of sports that they might not otherwise have known.”
