Kate Middleton has given a rare insight into her family life, revealing what it's like trying to bake at home with her three-year-old son, Prince George.

During a visit to UK charity Youthscape with her husband, Prince William, the couple were invited to watch a baking demonstration.

Teens supported by the charity were busy cooking chocolate crispie cakes when Kate took up the chance to talk to them about their ingredients.

According to Hello magazine, Kate asked the group, "So what are you making? This smells seriously good.

She went on to tell them, "When I try to do this with George at home, chocolate and the golden syrup goes everywhere," she said. "He makes so much mess. It's chaos."

The Duchess and her family have just returned home from a month-long holiday in France. Their visit to the charity marked their return to royal duties and their focus on raising awareness about mental health issues.
