The Prince and Princess of Wales don't have to worry about preparing a packed lunch for their children to take to school. Lambrook, where the royal children have been enrolled since September, offers a lavish menu for all students. Their £23k-per-year primary school, Thomas's Battersea, even offered a menu curated by world-class chefs - but what about dinners when the kids get home from school?

While Prince William has admitted he's not the most gifted in the kitchen, Princess Kate has often shared an insight into her passion for cuisine. From her spicy curries to homemade pizzas, we're sure that Prince George, Princess Charlotte and little Prince Louis enjoy their mother's cooking after a long school day.

The Wales children even like to get involved with the cooking at home. According to Vanity Fair: "When Kate or the housekeeper are preparing meals in the kitchen, Charlotte will set up shop next to them, 'her own toy set by her side to imitate.'" So cute!

What do the Wales children eat when they get home from school?

So what do school night dinners in Adelaide Cottage look like? HELLO! deep dives into the Waleses kitchen to discover what the royal children are served to fuel them throughout a busy week of school.

Lots of fresh fruit and vegetables

It's no secret that Princess Kate leads an incredibly healthy lifestyle, reportedly starting her day with an antioxidant-rich green juice and incorporating lots of fruit and vegetables into her daily diet, so we would expect she serves her children a similar menu.

The Princess of Wales previously told Mary Berry that her three kids actually really enjoy eating their greens. "We've got carrots, beans, beetroot - a massive favourite - Louis absolutely loves beetroot," she told the former Great British Bake Off star.

Princess Kate's curries

Kate loves to cook curry, having previously revealed she enjoys making vegetable curry when cooking at home.

When it comes to the spice levels of the curries, the royal herself has previously admitted she is a fan of spicy food – although she revealed ahead of her royal tour of India with Prince William that unlike her, her husband "struggles" with spices. We expect she keeps the spice level low when cooking for her children too.

The Princess of Wales has a love for cooking

Homemade pizzas

While helping prepare food at St. Luke’s Community Centre for the Commonwealth Big Lunch event in London, Kate revealed that her children's favourite dish is homemade pizza.

Speaking to a member, Yolanda from Bolivia, Kate said: "I've done that with George and Charlotte – making pizza dough. They love it because they can get their hands messy."

Fresh pasta

As well as homemade pizzas, pasta is another favourite in the Wales house - and the royal kids even get to make it themselves! People reported that during a visit to Lavender Primary School, Kate told Matthew Kleiner-Mann of her family's love of the Italian staple.

He said: "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."

Princess Kate loves to cook with her children at home

Beans on toast

Like many parents, Kate and William are often tied up with work engagements during the evenings when their children return home from school.

Though the Palace hasn't previously confirmed that King Charles and Queen Consort Camilla, the children's grandparents, help with the childcare during busier weeks, we know exactly what the royal kids would be served whilst dining at their grandparent's house if they did - and it's a British classic.

The Queen Consort loves fuss-free dishes

In a recent interview with YOU magazine, the Queen Consort Camilla, George, Charlotte and Louis' grandmother, described her culinary approach as "nothing too mucked about, or fussy or fiddly", adding baked beans on toast, "always Heinz," and cheese on toast to her culinary repertoire of favourite foods. Simple, but delicious!
