Details of Kate Middleton's Country Life Are Too Sweet to Resist

The Royal Family seem to be settling into their country life at Anmer Hall, and according to the locals, it's easy to forget that they're not just any other ordinary family. Kate Middleton even recently popped into a deli and farm shop to purchase a cookie for her toddler, Prince George.


The Duchess of Cambridge was visiting the village of Holt (not far from their country estate), when she stopped in at the cafe Back to the Garden. The store, which focuses on health-conscious menu, and stocks homegrown vegetables and organic meats, counts Kate as a regular customer.

One of the staffers from the store told PEOPLE magazine that Kate recently "bought a meringue for Prince George." Is that the perfect sweet for an almost-two-year-old big brother or what? It's sweet and yummy, but without a lot of the delicious bad-for-you-stuff loaded into other baked goods.

According to the employee, Kate is "incredibly down-to-earth, very gracious and extremely polite." They added, "If you didn't know who she was, you would never know."

Kate has famously enjoyed country life, and has even talked about growing potatoes while living in North Wales. She has been enjoying walks past the vegetable gardens in the nearby village of Snettisham. A local said of the Duchess, "She was just taking a break from everything ... She stopped and said hello to a few of the people working on their plants."

I think it's awesome that Kate and Prince William are trying to provide as normal a life for their kids as possible -- including a relaxed life in the country, and an occasional cookie for a treat.
