Everyone needs to relax and enjoy a little TLC on the weekends, whether you’re catching up with friends or curling up on the sofa and painting your nails.
Even the royals have to take a breather every now and then, despite attending numerous luxurious and glamorous events – they’re only human after all.
Prince William and Kate Middleton are no different – So when Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis are all put to bed, the Duke and Duchess like to indulge themselves.
Once the children are asleep, Prince William and Kate like to spend some quality time with each other and enjoy a little treat – who wouldn’t?
But what is it the royals like to do after they’ve said goodnight to their children?
The couple revealed that they like to settle down to watch some Netflix and chow down on a takeaway – a very normal pleasure for most people.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have previously spoken about their ideal Friday night in on BBC Radio One – ordering a curry for Kate and a pizza or Chinese takeaway for WIlliam, while bingeing a Netflix box set.
However, a delivery driver wouldn’t usually be expected to knock on the gates of Kensington Palace – instead someone from the Duke and Duchess’s team would go and collect it themselves, as Kate explained: ‘It doesn’t usually get ordered to the palace, we tend to go and pick it up – not ourselves!’
The Queen is also a fan of an indulgent takeaway, as Tatler reported that her favourite dish was none other than Britain’s favourite – fish and chips.

They said: “A footman is dispatched to get it from the local town of Ballater.”
Seems the royals are quite normal after all with their choice of a classic Friday night takeaway.
The question is – curry, pizza, Chinese, or fish and chips?
