Members of the public who met Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, have revealed exactly how she likes her cup of tea.
The Duchess made an appearance at Ark Open Farm in Northern Ireland last week and enjoyed a cup of tea with members of the Kilcooley Women’s Centre – who swiftly shared a snippet of their meeting on Twitter.
“Fantastic to meet HRH Duchess of Cambridge today in Newtownards with @earlyyearsorg,” they tweeted. “Tea and chat with our children and parents on the importance of giving the best start to all children.”
And it wasn’t long before royal fans begged to know how Catherine, 38, takes her tea. With one asking, “It looked like a fantastic day! And a great opportunity to discuss early years work, but I’m dying to know – Any inside goss on how Kate takes her tea?”
The charity replied, “Just like us little bit of milk …. so down to earth we were enchanted.”
It’s the next in a string of revelations about the Duchess who was refreshingly honest and open about motherhood during an appearance on Giovanna Fletcher’s podcast, Happy mum, Happy Baby, last week.
She and Prince William have three children together – Prince George, six, Princess Charlotte, four, and Prince Louis, who turns two in April.
During the candid chat with Giovanna, Catherine not only revealed she found hypnobirthing “hugely powerful” and suffered “rotten” pregnancies thanks to hyperemesis gravidarum (extreme morning sickness), she also confessed to getting “mum guilt”.
“I got very bad morning sickness. I’m not the happiest of pregnant people. Lots of people have it far, far worse. It was definitely a challenge,” she admitted. “Not just for me, but also for your loved ones around you and I think that’s the thing – being pregnant and having a newborn baby and things like that, impacts everybody in the family.
“William didn’t feel he could do much to help and it’s hard to see you’re suffering without actually being able to do anything about it.”
She also said it is a “constant challenge” juggling her role as a mother, a royal and a patron of so many charities and feels mum guilt “all the time”.
Catherine added, “Anyone who doesn’t as a mother is actually lying!”
