A post shared by Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (@kensingtonroyal) on

Just last year she told an organiser at an official event that she was teaching her family how to cook and bake.

A source told People: “She was telling us how much her children love cooking and how they cook for her.

“They made cheesy pasta the other day. One stirs the flour, one puts the milk and butter in. And they make salads and stuff.”

The Poppy Appeal is the British Legion’s biggest annual charity fundraising appeal.

However, it will be quite different this year due to COVID-19 restrictions.

There will be less public fundraisers due to lockdown rules.

On the charity’s official website they still encourage Brits to get involved in any way they can.

This includes: “From donating for poppies through the post for your neighbours and local community, displaying a poppy in your window, donating online or undertaking a virtual Poppy run, there are many ways to support the Poppy Appeal from home in line with Covid-19 restrictions.”
