Chores fit for a Prince: George helps out on the farm

He might be the future King of England, but that doesn't stop Prince George from responsibilities around the house.

On a recent visit to a goat farm in Wales with Prince William, the Duchess of Cambridge shared how young Prince George was responsible for moving animal feed on the Sandringham estate. The royals have a home on the estate at Anmer Hall Norfolk, “we spend as much time as we can here, it’s very peaceful,” the Prince admitted.

While on the tour, the Duke spotted a robot silage sweeper in one of the barns in Wales and pointed it out to a farmer. The farmer explained it could also be used to move feed. Kate replied, “That was George’s job at half term — moving feed.”

Like his father, William has a keen interest in farming and sustainability. “We are trying some Agroforestry as well,” he explained, with the hopes to turn it into a full organic operation. The passion has certainly been passed through the genes, with young George, Charlotte and Louis all having a keen interest in animals and life on the farm. 

To celebrate Kate and William’s 10 year wedding anniversary, they shared a sweet insight into their lives, running through orchards and toasting marshmallows on the farm with their children.
