Royals ... they are just like us! Well, somehow, only with additional wealth, noble descent and access to unreal fashion.
In the last few months of closure, we've seen them get used to the challenge of not being able to leave their homes to do their jobs, and instead through the wonders of the webcam (which also gave us a quick look at Note House in) Norfolk, where Prince William, Kate Middleton and their three children lived).
However, now that government restrictions are abating, the royals return to work and meet the public again in person, albeit from a safe distance.
Prince William visited King's Lynn Ambulance Station at Queen Elizabeth Hospital yesterday to speak to the crew about their mental health and to congratulate them on all their hard work during the pandemic.
While he was there, the future king also announced that he had also picked up a super-assignable hobby during lockdown. "I'm also worried about the waist of the nation with all the chocolate and cake," he joked. "I baked a lot at home. Chocolate is very well received!"
Do you think he was on the banana bread hype too? Or is it just me, but have all new would-be bake-off candidates now switched to making cinnamon rolls?
A post on the visit to Instagram (via the @ KensingtonRoyal account) read:
"Many thanks to the staff at Kings Lynn Ambulance, Queen Elizabeth Hospital, for welcoming the Duke of Cambridge to their ambulance and for sharing their experiences in the past few months in responding to the COVID 19 outbreak.
The duke heard from the crew about their effects on mental health and well-being, the support they received from members of the public and local businesses, and the help of volunteer networks.
The England Ambulance Service Trust (@EastEnglandAmb) provides 24/7 accident and emergency services to 6.2 million people in the East of England, operates over 130 locations and works closely with other flashing light partners to ensure that every patient receives the best possible Maintenance.
In April this year, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge supported the launch of @ourfrontlineuk, an initiative launched to help frontline personnel and key workers with mental health and grief around the clock. "

This isn't the first time Williams' sweet tooth has been making headlines - over Easter, he and the Duchess of Cambridge talked to a group of teachers about how they had adapted to coronavirus guidelines, and Kate made fun of him because he had eaten all the chocolate in her house.
The Duke of Cambridge also recently revealed that he is also a fan of a cheeky Nando.
You see, Royals, they're (somehow) just like us!
