Kate popped in a pub with Princess Charlotte to make a relatable request

All parents know that no matter how much you prepare, children can be unpredictable - just ask the Princess of Wales . Like many mums and dads before her, she was forced to take one of her kids - Princess Charlotte - into a south London pub and make a totally relatable request.

The pair had been travelling in a black Range Rover through the capital when it seems Charlotte told her mum she needed to use the toilet. On the lookout for the nearest bathroom, they pulled up outside The Phoenix pub in Stockwell in 2018 and walked in hand-in-hand to ask if they could use the facilities.

Stunned customers saw the royal pair and couldn't believe how normal they were. Maggie McKinney, a regular at the pub, told MailOnline at the time: "I was sitting in my usual chair and when I looked up I saw Kate Middleton, I mean the Duchess of Cambridge and her daughter Princess Charlotte. 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.'

Before Kate and Charlotte entered the pub a plain clothes woman, believed to be a protection officer, walked in and asked bar staff if a little girl could use the bathroom.

Princess Charlotte and her royal siblings, Prince George and Prince Louis, is preparing for a trip to Balmoral. The annual royal summer holiday, the first one since the late Queen died, will have some key differences this year though.

William and Kate, along with their three children, won't be sleeping at Balmoral and will instead stay in their own private residence. The Waleses have their own property on site, a cottage known as Tam-Na-Ghar, which was gifted to Prince William by his late great grandmother, the Queen Mother, before she passed in 2002.

The modest cottage has only three bedrooms, with William and Kate choosing to keep the property extremely private - with very few images of their Scottish home on the 50,000-acre Balmoral estate featuring 150 buildings in total. Tam-Na-Ghar is within close proximity to Birkhall, which is King Charles and Queen Camilla's residence on the Balmoral Estate, where they spent some of the coronavirus pandemic, reports Yahoo.
