"If she wanted a coffee, she preferred instant. She would come in the kitchen and make herself one and offer to make me one.

"One of the things with William I have noticed is that, like Diana, he and his family love to cook, they love to be together and doing things together. They also, like the Princess, allow their children to be children. You see them eating cookies, you see them even making cookies."
