KATE, the Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William suffered a messy “explosion” in their kitchen during the coronavirus lockdown as the children have been baking.
The Duchess of Cambridge, 38, and Prince William, 38, have been self-isolating at Anmer Hall in Norwich during the coronavirus lockdown as the Duke recently gave a personal insight into their home. The Duke of Cambridge joked that his three children have been “attacking the kitchen” during lockdown as he visited a bakery which serves the Queen’s Sandringham Estate.
Speaking on ITV’s Royal Rota, producer Lizzie Smith said: “Prince William joked he has also been doing some baking in the kitchen.
“It’s not just Kate in the kitchen, he’s been in there too.
“He said the children have been making a spectacular mess.”
Royal correspondent Chris Ship added: “An explosion is how William referred to it when George, Charlotte and Louis do some baking.”

William visited Smiths the Bakers in King’s Lynn’s High Street.
The bakery holds a Royal Warrant, which is a mark of recognition for those who supply goods or services to the households of the Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh or the Prince of Wales.
Paul Brandon, who runs the bakery business with his wife Teresa, told the duke that he had read that he had done some baking during lockdown.
William told them: “I’ve done a little bit of baking.

“The children have been attacking the kitchen and it’s just been an explosion of flour and chocolate everywhere.
“Catherine’s been doing quite a bit of baking.”
The duke was told how the bakery shop took the decision to close its doors soon after lockdown was announced as so few people were visiting the High Street, before reopening on Monday.
The business ran a home-delivery service while its shop was closed.

William heard how most of the bakery’s business comes from wholesale, including to schools which closed during lockdown, but is now starting to see customers return to the shop.
“The important thing is that shops like yours can get the footfall back in again and the High Street and town feel like it’s getting a little bit more back to normal,” the duke said.
“Because I think everyone’s just been, you know, it’s like they’ve just been in a daze.
“They don’t quite know what to make of it all.”
