Our Solution

The Duchess of Cambridge revealed herself to be quite the gardener on her latest public visit. Kate Middleton, Price William's wife, apparently told one of the local gardeners at Elswick Park in Newcastle that she makes the most of her garden spaces; namely by growing potatoes. She made the revelation whilst on a tour of the park. Park gardener Emma Hughes revealed all, telling dailymail.co.uk: "She grows her own potatoes in sacks. We were digging the potatoes and she was asking about it. She said ours were bigger. She said she only got small ones this year." It shows once again that Middleton is rather handy around the home - following reports last year that she and her husband make their own sausages, according to usmagazinecom. The publication claims that the pair are 'foodies'; adding that Middleton does all the shopping and cooking herself. The Duchess is also apparently skilled at making her own strawberry and plum reserves. She even gifts jars of the jam to friends and family at Christmas. She's been working with professional designers and contractors on the decoration of the couple's new apartment in Kensington Palace, too. The project is being funded by Queen Elizabeth and Prince Charles.
