One particular revelation fascinated royal fans and the American hosts of the Royally Obsessed podcast, Roberta Fiorito and Rachel Bowie, who made it their mission to uncover the “mystery”.
Kate told the morning show: “George gets very upset because he wants to do all of Charlotte’s projects.
“Making spider sandwiches is far cooler than literacy work.”

Ms Fiorito told listeners: “You’ll remember that Kate mentioned them as Prince George’s favourite thing in her ITV interview.
“We’ve both been back and forth about ‘is it this, is it that?’.
“I received a message just last night explaining what Kate is referencing.”
Ms Bowie interjected: “I was convinced that it was these little sandwiches with pretzels for legs. I was shocked when it wasn’t that.”

Ms Fiorito continued: “You were 50 percent right, this is what’s so fascinating. I even received photos.
“Apparently ‘Spider Sandwiches’ is a very popular UK children’s book written by Claire Freedman.
“But it’s also a popular children’s snack so they’re both involved in a lot of the lesson plans over there.”

She continued: “Schools will pair them as a lesson plan and the idea is that you read the book, make the spider sandwich and then you count the number of spider legs you can make with various ingredients, like celery.
“Then kids can say ‘oh they have eight legs’ and count them together.”
Ms Bowie added: “So I was partly right, but now I know there’s a deeper story there.
“It sounds like George and Charlotte are probably reading the book too.”
Ms Fiorito agreed: “That is what’s making a lot of sense. So the mystery has been solved.”
