Royals don't just carry their own groceries, they also get their kids in the habit of pitching in a hand from a very young age.

When the delivery staff from the Cambridge family's (opens in new tab) favorite local grocery store, Waitrose, in Norfolk shows up to drop off their order, George is one of the people who greets them—and insists on helping to carry in some of the packages.

According to a report from The Sun (opens in new tab) (where there are also pictures, if you're interested—which you know you are), Prince George (opens in new tab) joins his dad, Prince William, to greet the staff and carry in bags from the latest grocery order at their home, Anmer Hall.

Apparently, it's rare for a customer to help carry their groceries in—royal or otherwise.

“It is rare for anyone to ever offers to carry deliveries inside. So the Waitrose delivery staff were surprised and delighted to be greeted regularly by Prince William and Prince George," a source told The Sun (opens in new tab)"George is always particularly helpful and is the one who asks each time what he can carry for them. He is a very inquisitive child. They give him lighter bags. It shows how down-to-earth William is and that he wants his son to grow up being polite and helpful to others."

Will and Kate's down-to-earth (opens in new tab) parenting style has been compared to Princess Diana's. Will and Prince Harry's late mother was also famous for making sure her sons were raised as normally as possible. Diana would often take Will and Harry around London on the bus or the underground, rather than carting them around town in private cars like most royals.

Adorable. We can only assume Archie will be helping Meghan Markle with chores like this in a few years.
