Kate Middleton has just given admirers an exciting peek into life at home with her family and, suffice it to say, it doesn't sound far removed from our own. Well, if you ignore the fact we don't have a wardrobe bursting with designer clothes and share the bathroom with the future King of England. 

Yesterday, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visited the Youthscape project in London – a national youth charity– to raise awareness of their mental health initiatives and took the time to speak to the teenagers at the centre's re-opening.

The mother-of-two made her return to the spotlight – after months away from the limelight ahead of their official tour of Canada next month – wearing a blue-and-white LK Bennett dress she previously wore during her visit to Australia in 2014 proving a) she's thrifty b) she's on-trend c) she isn't afraid of a classic summer dress.

The official Kensington Royal Instagram account also posted a story of Kate and Prince William arriving in Luton ahead of their visit to Youthscape, making it the pair's official debut on Instagram stories. 

Sadly, the video was lacking a colourful filter, neon swirls and emojis, but we'll let them off on this occasion. 

Later, when tasting a batch of crispy chocolate cakes baked by the teens, Kate revealed she loves the syrupy treat, but when it comes to baking at home with Prince George, it's not exactly a clean affair.

'When I try to do this with George at home, chocolate and the golden syrup goes everywhere. He makes so much mess. It's chaos,' she said.

'George likes his spaghetti as well, he'd love to get messy,'she added.

A boy after our own hearts.

The busy Duchess also revealed she was a fan of Paul Hawkins' best-seller Girl On The Train, telling onlookers that she thought the book was 'really good' and that a big part of her childhood was playing the American card game Uno with her family. 

This insight into life at home with Will and Kate is incredibly useful if you're thinking of inviting the gang round for spaghetti, a game of uno and a book club session anytime soon.
