KATE MIDDLETON, 37, and Prince William, 36, may be key members of the royal family but they are also parents to Prince George, five, Princess Charlotte, three, and Prince Louis, one. As a mother, the Duchess of Cambridge always packs one thing in particular when travelling with her children.

Kate Middleton has enjoyed plenty of royal travel around the globe with her husband Prince William. The royal pair have undertaken several trips with their young children. Prince George and Princess Charlotte have visited Canada, Poland and Germany together, with the youngest heir to the throne travelling as far as Australia before the birth of his sister. Prince Louis, who recently turned one-year-old, has yet to travel on a royal tour.
Kate Middleton: Duchess of Cambridge always packs this when travelling with Prince George
Kate Middleton is just like any mother when she travels in that she knows to be prepared.
There’s one thing she’s always sure to keep packed for children when out and about.
The Duchess of Cambridge keeps snacks to hand for her little ones.
When Kate was seen in a car on a trip to the Royal Society of Medicine in 2017 she was spotted with supplies.
Behind her appeared to be a Tupperware full of snacks left on the car seat armrest.
The food was most likely full of snacks and food to keep her children going during long state visits and appearances.

The royal children enjoy Italian food such as pizza and pasta, Kate has previously said.
When Kate visited a primary school as part of her charity Place2Be’s Children’s Mental Health Week in February she explained Charlotte has a rather sophisticated taste in food despite her youth.
“Charlotte loves olives,” the mother of three revealed, People magazine reported.
“Cheesy pasta” is also believed to be a favourite among Kate’s immediate family.
One of Queen Elizabeth’s favorite food is so well-loved she often travels with it.

Kate Middleton ‘kept eye on’ Queen during royal visit says expert
The Queen refuses to travel without a slice of chocolate biscuit cake, according to Darren Mc Grady, Queen Elizabeth’s former personal chef and author of ‘Eating Royally.’
“Now the Chocolate Biscuit Cake is the only cake that goes back again and again and again every day until it’s all gone,” McGrady told baking website RecipePlus.
“She’ll take a small slice every day until eventually there is only one tiny piece, but you have to send that up, she wants to finish the whole of that cake.”
The Queen loves the cake so much, said McGrady, that a senior chef follows her on the next train with any leftovers of the cake should she leave even a sliver behind.
The chef added that Windsor staff had to steer clear of the cake as the monarch would know if any went missing.
When the Queen traveled to Zambia in 1979, she included a rather surprising item in her packing – alcohol, Robert Hardman said in his 2018 book Queen of the World.
“The British High Commission was bombarded with questions… The Master of the Royal Household wanted to know the precise dimensions of the plates that he hoped to use at his state banquet,” Hardman wrote.
“He would also require twelve dozen bottles of tonic water and six dozen of soda.” Hardman added: “The Queen would bring her own spirits to go with it.”
