Duchess Kate has a new sous chef. The Duchess of Cambridge, 34, revealed during a visit with teens at the Youthscape project in Luton, England, on Wednesday, August 24, that her son, Prince George, makes quite the mess in the kitchen.

The royal made the comment after inquiring about what the teens were baking in the kitchen at the facility, which specializes in young adults’ social, emotional and spiritual development.

"So, what are you making? This smells seriously good," Duchess Kate, clad in a blue and white L.K. Bennett dress, asked about their chocolate rice crispy creation. "What are you putting in? Is this just chocolate? Golden syrup? Good, good."

According to Duchess Kate, who visited the center with husband Prince William, she has tried to make the same treat with her 3-year-old son.

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

The couple later visited with CHUMS, a bereavement counseling service for young adults in Bedfordshire, and Keech hospice, where Duchess Kate chatted with a fellow mom about her son’s favorite foods.

“She said, 'George likes his spaghetti as well, he'd love to get messy,’” Suzanne Dow told reporters of her chat with the royal. Dow, who has a child suffering from a life-threatening illness, added that it was “awesome” to meet Duchess Kate, noting that she seemed empathetic while discussing her ill child.

While at the hospice, William also comforted a 14-year-old boy who, like the prince, also lost his mother at a young age. “Time makes it easier,” William, whose mom, Princess Diana, died in 1997 at 36, told him.
