The Duchess of Cambridge Dishes on George and Charlotte’s Favorite Foods


For her last public outing before she starts maternity leave, the Duchess of Cambridge attended the Commonwealth “Big Lunch” with her husband Prince William. While there, she shared a sweet insight into home life with her children Prince George and Princess Charlotte in the process.

The royals were helping out with the initiative in Islington, London, at St. Luke’s, which is a fully equipped cooking school that runs community classes on healthy home cooking. The “Big Lunch” scheme encourages people to sit down and share food with members of their community once a year. While getting lending a hand, Kate shared her children’s favorite hobby.

As she added finishing touches to the lunch, she said, “I’ve done that with George and Charlotte — making pizza dough. They love it because they can get their hands dirty.”

Clearly, it’s not all caviar and tiaras for the young royals: It’s nice to see that they love pizza as much as any toddler (and, you know, as much as any grown up.)

Though being in the kitchen may be the favored activity of the royal children (indeed, Kate has previously revealed that George, when he’s not admiring helicopters or watching Fireman Sam, has a knack for pancake-making) Prince William admits that he doesn’t share the same culinary skills as his children.

“I do like cooking, but I’m not very good. I like a roast. So, a bit of roast chicken or a steak,” he said in November 2017, admitting that he’s not a total natural in the kitchen. “I like it medium rare. I like it quite alive.”

Commonwealth Big Lunches are part of the official celebrations leading up to the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting that are taking place between March 12 and April 22.
