Duchess Kate Middleton recognizes that she has certain responsibilities as Prince William’s wife and mother of Prince George and Princess Charlotte, both in line to ascend to the throne. But that doesn’t mean that she avoid staying in touch with reality. And so, just as her new royal baby daughter turns two-weeks-old, Princess Kate is reaching out to her local Women’s Institute to become a member, reported the Daily Mail.
Now in their country home, Prince William and Duchess Kate want to be part of the life there. And by joining the Women’s Institute, which offers everything from how to arrange flowers to the joys of chat about the best methods for changing diapers while partaking of tea and crumpets, the mother of two royal children can achieve that goal.
In addition to her Women’s Institute membership, 33-year-old Duchess Kate has shown that she truly regards herself as one of the people by shopping casually in local shops and munching in pubs with Prince William.
In addition, as the Inquisitr reported, Duchess Kate has taken time to support hospices for ailing children.
Speaking out for Children’s Hospice Week, Kate wrote a letter urging the public to help fund and recognize the importance of supporting parents whose children have illnesses that shorten their lives.
“For families of children with life-limiting conditions, every moment is precious and every memory needs to be cherished and celebrated. Children’s hospices strive to create happy moments in the most difficult times any family could face. I hope you will join me in supporting Children’s Hospice Week and work to make every moment count for all of our families.”
And as the parents of two settle into their country home with Prince George and Princess Charlotte, the newest member of their family continues to get a royal share of the attention, reported People.
The nanny used for Prince George also helps with Princess Charlotte. At 43, Maria Teresa Turrion Borrallo can baby-sit when Duchess Kate is at those Women’s Institute meetings.
Princess Charlotte’s Great Grandmother Queen Elizabeth is thrilled by little Charlotte.
“We love to have another girl,” she declared.
In addition, as the Inquisitr reported, Prince Harry is delighted about the news of his new royal niece. He’s already collecting toys to bring her when he finally meets the baby.
After viewing photos of Princess Charlotte, Harry made it clear that he is already smitten with his baby niece.
“She is absolutely beautiful. I can’t wait to meet her,” he declared.
