William and Kate have returned to royal duties after enjoying a summer break with their three children at the Isles of Scilly and Balmoral. Two weeks ago the couple were seen at the premier of new James Bond film No Time To Die alongside Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, with Kate in particular dazzling in a gold Jenny Packham gown. The next day however, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were on royal duties in Londonderry as part of a swift whirlwind tour of Northern Ireland. 

This week, Kate also voiced her support for a study in early years development of children, ahead of a meeting the University College London academics behind it. 

The Duchess has worked ten years highlighting the importance of children’s formative education, and in June launched the Royal Foundation Centre for Early Childhood.

Upon her arrival to UCL Kate said: “Our early childhood shapes our adult lives and knowing more about what impacts this critical time is fundamental to understanding what we as a society can do to improve our future wealth and happiness.”

William and Kate are among the most popular members of the Royal Family and are considered vital to ensuring the Firm’s relevance for younger generations.

The couple, who married on April 29, 2011, have been known to regularly tease each other in front of the public during their royal engagements. 

In 2016 William and Kate were treated to a five course meal prepared by Michelin-starred chefs and William took the opportunity to playfully mock his wife.

According to the Express.co.uk in 2016, Kate jokes to chefs: “William has to put up with my cooking most of the time.”

William then swiftly interjected: “It’s the reason I’m so skinny.”

The couple were guests of honour for a charity dinner at Houghton Hall, a few miles from the couple’s country mansion Anmer Hall, with the funds raised from the evening donated towards building a new hospice in Norfolk.

During Easter last year Kate revealed her husband’s love for chocolate cake, while she has also teased him in the past over his tendency to get pizza on the sofa. 

The Duchess also laid into William during the BBC’s 2019 film A Berry Royal Christmas.

She told Mary Berry: “In university days he used to cook all sorts of meals.

“I think that’s when he was trying to impress me, Mary! Things like Bolognese sauce and things like that.”

On her own culinary skills, Kate stressed that she prefers to bake cakes, especially for her children’s birthdays and revealed William is “very good at breakfast.”

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge met in 2011 while students at the University of St Andrew in Scotland.

There, the couple began a relationship which briefly ended in 2007, before Kate and William reconciled, and married in 2011 at Westminster Abbey. 

They have three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis. 

William and Kate’s shared sense of humour was also on display during their first ever shared interview in 2010 upon announcing their engagement. 

Interviewer, Tom Bradby, asked if Kate had a poster of William on her bedroom wall when she was growing up.

William quickly replied: “It wasn’t just one, it was like ten, twenty.”

The Duchess interjected to say: “He wishes. 

“No, I had the Levi’s guy on my bedroom wall, not a picture of William ‒ sorry.”
