Kate Middleton hopes Prince George and Princess Charlotte join the Scouts

As far as royal families go, the Cambridges may be one of the most relatable

Sure, they may live in a palace (Kensington, that is!), travel around the world, attend elite schools and have a place in line to the throne, but the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have been vocal about raising their children as normal as possible. That means Kate and Will each take turns for carpool, and choose to do their grocery shopping and other errands themselves. 

Also for Prince George and Princess Charlotte, that means joining the Scouts.

Last Thursday, Duchess Kate paid a visit to the Scouts headquarters at London's Gilwell Park, where she learned about the organization's impact on young children. While building forts and testing out rockets, the duchess admired the inclusivity of the program and how it challenges young children.

“She said she would like them to go into the scouting community because she loves what it stands for — that it’s a very open and inclusive way into life,” said teenager Lauren Noble who showed Kate around, according to People. “She said it would be a great thing for them to get involved in.”

Another volunteer echoed Kate's fascination in the program. According to Tahseen Patel, Kate explained how "she wants her children to grow up in the Scouting movement, not just in school, because she tries doing things at home but there's only so much you can do and you need to build relationships with other people."

It seems to run in the family, too! According to reports, the 37-year-old duchess also grew up as a Brownie and an adult volunteer.
