Royals... they're just like us! Well, kind of, only with additional wealth, noble ancestry and access to unreal fashion.
During the last few months of lockdown, we've seen them adapt to the challenge of being unable to leave their homes to conduct their duties and instead doing so via the wonders of webcam (which has also allowed us a sneaky peek into Anmer House in Norfolk, where Prince William, Kate Middleton and their three children have been staying).
Now, however, as government restrictions begin to ease up, the royals are returning to work and have been meeting the general public in-person once more, albeit from a safe distance.
Yesterday saw Prince William pay a visit to the King's Lynn Ambulance Station in Queen Elizabeth Hospital, to chat with the crew about their mental health and to congratulate them for all their hard work during the pandemic.
Whilst there, the future king also revealed that he'd taken up a super relatable hobby while in lockdown too. "I'm worried about the waistline of the nation as well with all the chocolate and cakes," he joked. "I've done a lot of baking at home. Chocolate goes down very well!"
Reckon he's been on the banana bread hype as well? Or, is it just me, but have all the new wannabe Bake Off contestants now switched to making cinnamon buns?
Posting about the visit on Instagram (via the @KensingtonRoyal account), a caption read:
"Thank you to the staff of Kings Lynn Ambulance, Queen Elizabeth Hospital for welcoming The Duke of Cambridge to their ambulance station, and sharing so candidly their experiences over recent months in responding to the COVID-19 outbreak.
The Duke heard from the crew about their impact on mental health and wellbeing, the support they have received from members of the public and local businesses, as well as help from volunteering networks.
The England Ambulance Service Trust (@EastEnglandAmb) provides round-the-clock accident and emergency services to 6.2 million people living in the East of England, operating over 130 sites and working closely with other blue lights partners to ensure that every patient receives the best possible care.
In April this year, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge supported the launch of @ourfrontlineuk, an initiative that was created to provide round-the-clock mental health and bereavement support to frontline staff and key workers."
This isn't the first time William's sweet tooth has made headlines either – over Easter, he and the Duchess of Cambridge spoke with a group of teachers about how they'd adapted to the coronavirus guidelines, and Kate poked fun at him for eating all the chocolate in their home.
The Duke of Cambridge also revealed recently that he's a fan of a cheeky Nando's too.
See, royals, they're (kind of) just like us!
