During a packed day of engagements, Kate spends a lot of her time travelling from her home in Kensington Palace to various events. The Duchess of Cambridge likes to brings a lunch box with her when travelling by car, but it is not for Prince George, Princess Charlotte or Prince Louis. According to HELLO!, Kate keeps a container filled with her favourite snacks incase she feels peckish during long journey. The Duchess is not the only royal to stock up on her favourite essentials during long travels.
Camilla Parker-Bowles likes to have a bag of Murray Mints with her in the car, along with Hildon natural mineral bottled water and a pack of biscuits.
Hildon has supplied the Royal Family with bottled water for several years, coming from natural filtration through the chalk hills of the Test Valley in Hampshire.
The brand’s executive director Debbie Jones said: “The Warrant is a highly-prized seal of approval that is granted after an extremely rigorous audit process. This means a great deal to the whole team.
“Crucially, it is further proof that we have a robust environmental and sustainability policy, which is not only part of the criteria to hold the warrant, but also an important part of our core philosophy.”
Kate reportedly always packs snacks for her three children – Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis when travelling.
During her trip to the Royal Society of Medicine in 2017, the Duchess of Cambridge was spotted with a box full of snacks on the car’s armrest, which was most likely for her children.
Kate previously revealed how both she and her daughter, Princess Charlotte love eating olives as snacks.
During a visit to Lavender Primary School in Enfield in February, the Duchess told a group of students: “Charlotte loves olives.”
Meanwhile, Kate told a young patient Rafael Chana during a visit to Great Ormond Street Hospital in 2018: “I used to eat lots and lots of olives when I was little as well.”
Both Princess Charlotte and her brother, Prince George have a love for food and enjoy being hands on in the kitchen with their mother, Kate.
Matthew Kleiner-Mann, chief executive of the Ivy Learning Trust, who spoke to Kate during her school visit 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.
“Food is important to her and she understands the links between mental health and physical exercise.”
