Royal families! They’re just like us! (Sort of….)

What does a night in look like for the royal family? Contrary to popular belief, Prince William and Duchess Kate Middleton don’t sit around sipping Dom Pérignon (as Queen Elizabeth does, daily) and noshing on caviar while debating the political topics of the moment. On the contrary, according to an interview with BBC 1 Radio this week, the regal couple is way more likely to binge-watch Homeland while eating curry “takeaway” (known in the States as takeout).

Unfortunately, their sneaky takeaway habits have to be redirected to a different address: The future king explained in the interview that, due to safety concerns, they won’t have the food directly delivered to Kensington Palace. We imagine there would need to be a royal food-taster on hand just to make sure no rogue piece of curried chicken is contaminated.

You can listen to the full interview here — including an adorable description of Prince George’s television habits and an explanation of why William declined to give his grandmother the Queen of England a birthday gift.


This Is What Kate Middleton Eats In A Day

Kate Middleton usually has her hands full with royal duties, but the Duchess of Cambridge and wife of Prince William also follows some pretty regular routines — especially while on maternity leave. Proof that this royal is just like us: Middleton, pregnant with baby number three, was photographed doing a little grocery shopping at a supermarket in Swaffham, England.

Although Middleton shopped alongside police protection (when's the last time you went food shopping with a body guard?), it was still a seemingly normal experience. She wore a bit of makeup and kept her hair down while adding items to her cart and loading up her reusable grocery bags. It feels weird to give kudos to anyone for doing their own shopping, but let's be real — if you could afford to have someone run all of our errands for you, would you ever bother?

So, what does a duchess buy at the grocery store? Other than some leafy greens, pictures didn't tell the full story. Yet, there's a good chance Middleton's meal plan includes the things below.
