Preschoolers often like to help around the house, bundling up pairs of socks or sweeping up crumbs with that little brush and pan.
Escape from the city
We’ve just found out that five-year-old Prince George is equally keen to get involved in some grown-up chores, led by his dad, the future king.
Anmer Hall is a few kilometres from the Queen’s Sandringham estate and was given to William and Kate as a wedding gift. The couple spend as much time at Anmer as they can, ducking away from their busy life at their London Kensington Palace home to enjoy the countryside and live away from the media spotlight.
The family regularly have their groceries delivered to Anmer Hall from English supermarket Waitrose and apparently, William and George are often keen to muck in and offer to carry some of the shopping into the kitchen. Just like normal people.
It’s been revealed that young George is especially eager to help and loves chatting to the delivery people.
“George is always particularly helpful and is the one who asks each time what he can carry for them. He is a very inquisitive child,” Metro UK reports.
“They give him lighter bags. It shows how down-to-earth William is and that he wants his son to grow up being polite and helpful to others.”
The Cambridges are flanked by security detail, no matter where they go or what they do, so these small chances to do ‘normal’ things must come as a welcome relief to the family.
Reactions online to helpful George have been mixed. While some are loving that he’s a polite team player, others are wondering whether a) this might put him at risk or b) why people care about the Cambridge’s shopping.
But for those of us who love the royals, these stories provide a little more back story to this high profile but also private family.
We look forward to a less private royal moment on the weekend, when the family will assemble on the balcony of Buckingham Palace for Trooping The Colour. Prince Louis is set to make his balcony debut and it’s hoped that we might see Duchess Meghan for the first time since baby Archie’s debut, too!

’Tis the season for mugs. Adrian Valencia (@drawadriandraw) messaged me yesterday to let me know that he has produced a new mini-collection, featuring yet another fabulous drawing of Kate—this time with her three children. Adrian’s new collection, called “A Royal Day Out,” includes two different mugs, a set of four coasters, and an assortment of prints, all available for order individually. Adrian does a pre-order system, so if you want anything from this collection, you need to order it now (pre-order closes on Tuesday)! These are not products that are for sale throughout the year. He has also kindly provided a discount code for From Berkshire to Buckingham readers for the prints. The code is: ROYAL and will give you 10% off prints. These mugs are so cute. I can’t wait to add to my Kate collection with these drawings celebrating Kate in her favorite role: mother. . . . #katemiddleton #duchessofcambridge #dukeofcambridge #williamandkate #duchesskate #princesskate #thedukeandduchessofcambridge #duchesscatherine #royalcouple #princewilliam #katemiddletonstyle #britishroyals #princesses #oldkatemiddleton #princewilliam #dukeofcambridge #princelouis #princegeorge #princesscharlotte #thecambridges #theroyalfamily #gardenparty #queensgardenparty #princelouis #princegeorge #princesscharlotte #cambridgekids
