Kate Middleton reportedly gets a special evening treat from Prince William once their children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis are tucked up in bed.
- The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge reportedly “look after each other”, but in “different ways” as they balance their royal and family lives.
- In a heartfelt gesture, Prince William is said to bring Kate Middleton a delicious gin and tonic after their three children are in bed.
- This royal news comes as Carole Middleton was spotted doing some VERY lavish Christmas shopping and we bet it was for Kate.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge celebrated their 10th wedding anniversary this year and the sweet gestures between the royal and husband wife over the years have consistently captured fans’ imaginations. From Prince William’s promise to Kate Middleton after their son Prince Louis was born that was finally fulfilled in October, to Kate and William’s flirty banter, the couple’s love story is always fascinating. Now it’s been claimed that Prince William sometimes brings a special evening treat to Kate after their three children, Prince George, Charlotte and Louis are asleep.
As reported by People, a family friend of the Cambridges has claimed that "William will bring Kate a gin-and-tonic” as they unwind from the busy day together.
“They look after each other, but in different ways,” they continued, whilst another source went on to allege that particularly “Kate likes to keep an ordinary life” at home.
Throughout the challenges that accompany royal life and being second in the royal line of succession and future queen respectively, Prince William and Kate have regularly been observed supporting each other at all manner of important occasions over the years. Just days ago, the Duke accompanied the Duchess to the Together at Christmas carol concert, for which Kate Middleton wore a red dress that also paid a lovely tribute to Princess Diana.
The Cambridges arrived together, where they were pictured beaming and enjoying each other’s company, with William looking incredibly proud of his wife, who was hosting the event. Meanwhile, in October they made their green carpet debut as they attended the Earthshot Prize 2021 Awards.
According to People, photographer Chris Jackson has expressed his heartfelt belief that Kate was “clearly really proud” of her husband, who established the environmental award in collaboration with Sir David Attenborough last autumn.
But it’s not just during work hours that Prince William and Kate can be seen to “look after each other”. At home, be it Anmer Hall in Norfolk or the family’s London residence, Kensington Palace, Prince William and Kate are said to be involved parents, very much on the same page when it comes to raising their three children.
Prioritizing time in nature and fresh air, during lockdown, royal author Katie Nicholl suggested to OK! Magazine that Kate and William were enjoying frequent walks to help with their learning.
“She wants them to get fresh air and be in nature,” Katie said. “She loves to pick vegetables with them in the gardens. If they are learning about rivers or the sea, she and William try to incorporate that into their walks.”
Meanwhile, People report that friends of the Duke and Duchess have also described the couple as hands-on, from picking their children up from school to sorting out breakfasts in the morning. Their focus on supporting and caring for each other in “different ways” is so heart-warming and many people will likely very much approve of Kate Middleton’s evening treat choice after a busy day!
