Everyone loves a good bowl of cheesy pasta, don't they? Well, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's children Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis certainly do.

Back in February 2019, Duchess Kate visited the Lavender Primary School in London and spoke about her children's most-loved meals.

Matthew Kleiner-Mann, chief executive of the Ivy Learning Trust revealed: "She was telling us how much her children love cooking and how they cook for her. They made cheesy pasta the other day. One stirs the flour, one puts the milk and butter in. And they make salads and stuff."

What kind children! Hands up who's getting their children to make some delicious cheesy pasta too.
