Proof Kate Middleton Is Just Like Us

Kate Middleton may have the honor of using the title “Her Royal Highness,” but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t like to do some of the same things that we all do! The Duchess of Cambridge, on more than one occasion, has been seen kicking back and relaxing, just enjoying the day and having a good time.

Not everything in her life is all glitz and glamour, and that is just the way she seems to like it. So, what are some of the ways that Kate Middleton is just like the rest of us?

She loves sports

During her time as a member of the royal family, Kate has been seen many times cheering on her husband, Prince William, at polo matches, or attending Wimbledon. She even participates in the fun and games herself! Kate has been known to get out on the field while making appearances, even in designer high heels. Recently, she even reportedly took her two older children, George and Charlotte, on a fun swimming excursion. Looks like the Duchess enjoys being as sporty and active as possible.

Kate is a hands-on mom

Kate may have the privilege of having a nanny to care for her kids at all times, but she likes to get involved whenever she can. On her days off from royal duties, Kate can often be spotted at London parks with her children, and when they accompany her and William on trips and engagements, she is always seen holding their hands or crouching down to their level to speak to them. What a wonderful mom Kate is! 

She even rolls her eyes

Being a Duchess does not stop Kate from getting annoyed at times! She was famously seen rolling her eyes on an official visit to New York City when someone told her what to do. Although a royal family member rolling their eyes may be frowned upon by Queen Elizabeth, that didn’t stop Kate from expressing her feelings at the time!

The Duchess enjoys an occasional glass of wine

It’s not all tea and biscuits for Kate! She has been seen on more than one occasion sipping a glass of her favorite wine, and recently, was even spotted behind the bar pulling a beer while in Ireland with Prince William. While it was not known who the beer was actually for, who is to say that Kate didn’t sit back and enjoy it herself?

Although Kate has people to attend to her every whim and desire, that doesn’t stop her from doing things for herself! She has been seen at supermarkets in London, stocking up on groceries for the family, and this past holiday season, she was spotted at a discount store buying Christmas presents. Kate doesn’t hesitate to interact with members of the public when she is out and about, and many people have reported receiving smiles, handshakes, and greetings from the royal.

She cooks her own meals

Kate has been known to give the palace chefs a break and cook meals for herself and her family! She is supposedly excellent in the kitchen, whipping up dishes that everyone, including her brother in law Prince Harry, raves about. Kate even bakes with little Prince George, and he surely enjoys the sweet treats that they create together. How cute is that?

Being a royal family member certainly has its advantages! However, Kate Middleton is just like the rest of us, even when she is in front of the cameras. Those who have met her say she is down to earth and relatable, in general, just a nice, genuine person whom people enjoy spending time with!
