"When the Queen visited the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge at Anmer Hall for the first time, she couldn’t get her head around the fact that the kitchen is the main base for them," the source said.

"For the Queen, she can't stand that because she is used to having a set room for that sort of thing."

The insider said unlike the Queen, the Cambridges have adopted a more relaxing public attitude and home set-up. In Prince William and Middleton's home, the "main hub" of their home is their kitchen.

While Queen Elizabeth II doesn't spend that much time in the kitchen, the Cambridges do because they enjoy cooking and baking together. In fact, Prince George and Princess Charlotte's hobbies include cooking with their mom, the Duchess of Cambridge.

Middleton and her kids love to cook homemade pizza. The duchess opened up about her favorite hobby with her kids when she appeared on BBC Christmas special A Very Berry Christmas. During her appearance, Middleton was asked whether she cooks with her children.

"Yes, I really enjoy it," Middleton told Great British Bake-off judge Mary Berry.

Middleton added that cooking helped her kids to be "creative." It also prepares them to be "as independent as possible."

"Actually, one of the last things we cooked together was your pizza dough," Middleton told the food writer. "We made pizzas with your pizza dough recipe…They loved it. Absolutely loved it."
