With all her regal excellence it can sometimes be hard to forget that behind the royal curtsies, impeccable fashion, and princess tiaras, Kate Middleton is also a busy mum.

Constantly flitting to and from royal engagements, flying around the world, and holidaying with her three-children, Kate does spend a lot of time travelling, especially in the car.

And so she never has to think about when she’s going to have her next bite to eat, Kate carries a small plastic lunch box with her in the car whenever she travels, Hello! has discovered.

And she’s not the only one in the royal family that likes to have certain things with them in the car.

Meghan likes to travel with Hildon natural mineral water in still and sparkling, after the company gained an official royal warrant - it had supplied the royal household with the water for years.

Whereas, Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, always has a bag of Murray Mints in the car for her travels.

Given how many royal engagements are on the calendar, it’s no surprise the members of the royal family have come up with these little quirks along the way.
