Kate Middleton may be a member of the royal family with plenty of aides at her beck and call but she's actually just a regular mother.
Need proof? This back-to-school story will give you all the evidence you need.
According to , Kate popped into her local John Lewis in London to buy Prince George and Princess Charlotte their new school shoes (it's also the stockist for little George's school uniform, apparently).
As Hello! reports: "Kate proved she makes parenting mistakes just like the rest of us, by turning up to purchase the shoes without one crucial item – their socks! The children, who were wearing summer sandals, had to borrow a pair from the shop in order to try on their smart new shoes."
Oh, Kate, we feel ya.
We love hearing these relatable tales from members of the royal family and we recently learnt how they like to spend their time at home, which might just surprise you.
While you might imagine Kate, Wills, George, Charlotte and Louis indulging in lavish activities, kicking back on golden thrones and dining on the finest foods at home, that couldn't be further from the truth.
In fact, Kate recently revealed that her favourite thing about being a parent is enjoying 'the simple things'.
In an open letter to East Anglia's Children's Hospice in celebration of Children's Hospice Week, Kate wrote: "Spending quality time together is such an important aspect of family life and for me, as a mother, it is the simple family moments like playing outside together that I cherish."
How refreshingly down-to-earth!
Here's her letter in full...
As a new mother-of-three, Kate certainly has plenty of experience when it comes to raising a young brood.
And the royal proved she understands what other new parents are going through as she spoke candidly about the 'baby blues' during a visit to a psychiatric ward earlier this year.
Kate opened her heart on the trauma of baby blues during a visit to a hospital that cares for mothers who've become mentally ill.
She said: "There's an expectation you're going to be super happy all the time. One in four of us aren't."
The 36-year-old added: "The research is there, but actually it's getting the awareness out there for mothers to take [help]."

It's not the first time that Kate has spoken on the topic. In March last year, speaking at a Global Academy event in London, she said: “You do feel quite isolated,” she told a room full of attendees. "But actually, so many other mothers are going through exactly what you’re going through. But it’s being brave enough, like you obviously were, to reach out.”
The same year she also spoke out at the launch 'Out of the Blue' - a video series aimed at providing invaluable help to expectant parents and parents with infants or toddlers with mental health issues.
“Personally, becoming a mother has been such a rewarding and wonderful experience," she said. "However, at times it has also been a huge challenge – even for me who has support at home that most mothers do not."
Kate was referring to her nanny, Spanish-born nanny Maria Teresa Turrion Borrallo, who trained at the prestigious Norland College.
“Nothing can really prepare you for the sheer overwhelming experience of what it means to become a mother," she continued.
“It is full of complex emotions of joy, exhaustion, love, and worry, all mixed together. Your fundamental identity changes overnight. You go from thinking of yourself as primarily an individual, to suddenly being a mother, first and foremost.
“And yet there is no rule book, no right or wrong – you just have to make it up and do the very best you can to care for your family. For many mothers, myself included, this can, at times lead to lack of confidence and feelings of ignorance.”
