During a visit with teens at the Youthscape project in Luton on Wednesday, the royal mom opened up about George’s messy baking skills as she toured the organization’s kitchen.
“So, what are you making? This smells seriously good,” Kate asked as she walked in on the teens cooking up some chocolate crispy cakes. “What are you putting in? Is this just chocolate? Golden syrup? Good, good.”
She added, “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.”
Prince William, who admitted he has a sweet tooth, then said: “It smells very good in here. I think I’ve got time for just one. Can I try one?”
The prince took a mouthful of the treat and tore off a small piece for his wife to try.
Kate, dressed in a stunning blue and white floral poppy print dress by L.K. Bennett, delicately nibbled on it and declared it “delicious.”

And it seems George’s messy ways don’t stop at baking!
While chatting with parents during a visit to a hospice for children and adults, she told local mom Suzanne Dow about the royal toddler’s spaghetti-loving ways.
“She said, ‘George likes his spaghetti as well, he’d love to get messy,’ ” Dow told reporters.
Will Prince George and His Royal Family be Moving to London Soon?
The royal couple made a series of personal connections during their day-long outing.
William played video games with a group of teens, hilariously telling his opponent, 17-year-old Jermaine Hylton, “I used to play, ahem, occasionally when I worked on the night shift. It was a good way to stay awake.”
Wrapping up in his game, he then noticed that Kate had moved on ahead and hurried out of the room and said, “Oh, my wife has gone, I’ll be in trouble. I have been accused of playing too long on computer games.”
Kate, meanwhile, chatted with a teen playing the card game UNO and said it was one of her family’s favorite games – she frequently used to play it with her brother and sister, James and Pippa Middleton – and revealed that she had recently read the hit book, The Girl on the Train, by Paula Hawkins.
