KATE Middleton once shocked punters by popping into a pub with Princess Charlotte, but it wasn’t a drink they were after.
The Duchess of Cambridge had a polite request for staff and it’s something we’ll all be able to relate to.
Stunned pub goers watched Prince William’s wife and daughter pull up in a Range Rover, to use the facilities.
Kate and Charlotte, then three, are said to have walked hand-in-hand into The Phoenix in Stockwell, South London, as they popped in for a wee.
When it happened, in December 2018, pub local Maggie McKinney told the Mail Online: “The little kiddie just trotted in with her mum, went to the toilet and then trotted out.
“They could not have been in the pub for more than ten minutes.
“They seem very nice, totally normal. Princess Kate was holding her daughter’s hand. Princess Charlotte was just any other little girl.”
It was reported a staff member came in ahead of the Royals, to ask if they could use the loo.
Another punter added: “‘It just goes to show that the royals are like any other family. When your kid needs to go to the loo, they got to go!”
Charlotte was said to have been wearing a blue skirt and white blouse during the quick trip.
Customers were apparently warned not to take any photos before the mum and daughter headed inside.
At the time, a spokesperson for Kensington Palace declined to comment.
We previously revealed how Kate is preparing the Cambridge kids to start school, from disciplining “naughty” George to coded surnames.
