KATE Middleton recently proved she is just like any other parent when she headed to a London pub for a drink with some mums from her kids' school.
The Duchess of Cambridge, 37, managed to sneak in through a secret entrance at the Chelsea-based Hollywood Arms for a “meet and greet” party.
The event was held last month so parents of new pupils at the £6,000-a-term Thomas’s Battersea school could get to know each other.
Princess Charlotte, four, started at the school in September, joining her older brother Prince George, six, who's been attending since 2017.
Mum-of-three Kate was able to sneak in through a rear alley, away from prying camera phones , according to the Mail on Sunday.
The hidden doorway is said to have been previously installed for Prince Harry’s use back in his bachelor days.
The pub has additonal royal ties after previous owners Willow Crossley and husband Charlie, who sold the pub in 2015, helped to do the flowers for Prince Harry and Meghan’s wedding reception.
The low-key venue is said to be popular with customers for its Sunday roasts and weekend brunches and often attracts Chelsea socialites.
Kate is said to have snuck in undetected and enjoyed the company of her new friends, while watched over by her discreet security.
The party took place in the pub’s Boulevard Bar, which is a private salon costing £2,500 to hire for up to 80 people.
This follows Kate being branded “relatable” after she was spotted browsing for Halloween outfits in a local Sainsbury’s in Norfolk.
It’s not the first time the mum-of-three has been spotted shopping in a high street chain, and she stunned shoppers last Christmas by popping into The Range to pick up some festive gifts.
People were quick to gush over Kate being spotting in the supermarket chain, and praised her for being “relatable.”
One wrote on Instagram: “Over the years I've enjoyed seeing pics of Kate going about a routine things like shopping.
“She is a perfect representative of the Crown while on royal duties, and just relatable Kate when not on duties.”
Another added: “Humble family.”
Flybe passengers were shocked when Kate and the rest of the Cambridge brood boarded a £73-a-head budget flight from Norwich to Aberdeen to visit the Queen at Balmoral.
Kate also did her own make-up on her wedding day and has been seen handing round packed lunches to her excitable kids at the polo this summer.
