Prince George is one day set to be King, but that doesn't mean he's not as normal as the next five-year-old.

According to a new report from The Sun, the eldest Cambridge actually has a sweet routine, helping out his dad Prince William when they're at their country home, Anmer Hall.

Reportedly, Prince George has left Waitrose staff delighted, as he regularly joins his dad in helping to unload the food delivery to their home.

It's said that the five-year-old always greets delivery drivers at the door with Prince William, to assist him in lugging in the bags of food.

A source has said, “It is rare for anyone to ever offers to carry deliveries inside.

“So the Waitrose delivery staff were surprised and delighted to be greeted regularly by Prince William and Prince George.

“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."

Apparently, the Waitrose staff do try and make it a bit easier for George, by giving him bags that aren't so heavy.

“They give him lighter bags," the source continued. "It shows how down-to-earth William is and that he wants his son to grow up being polite and helpful to others.”

The royal family are known to be fans of the upscale supermarket, with the Duchess of Cambridge having often been spotted shopping there when she is in Norfolk.

Anmer Hall is the Norfolk retreat Catherine, William and their three children often head to when they get a break from their busy life in London.

The enormous, 10-bedroom home was given to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge by the Queen as a wedding present back in 2011, and it sits on the Sandringham estate, not far from the Queen's beloved Sandringham House.

William and Catherine rarely miss a chance to escape to their Norfolk abode, staying there during school holidays, including Christmas and Easter, or weekends.

In fact, the couple used the Hall as their main residence for years, starting when the Duke of Cambridge was working as a pilot for the East Anglia air ambulance. However, the family moved back to London full-time shortly before Prince George started school, to be close to the capital for all of their royal engagements.
