Kate Middleton and Prince William are reportedly eager to give their son, Prince George of Cambridge, a humble upbringing. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, it is believed, are slowly but surely settling into parenthood.

The duchess gave birth to George on 22 July and the royal family have since been living in Kate's parents' Berkshire mansion. According to Us Weekly, one of the first things the new parents did when they reached the £4.85m Georgian manor was sleep!

They follow a simple routine - sleep, take care of George and eat. Kate and William do have help from housekeeper Antonella Fresolone but are believed to carry out a number of domestic chores themselves.

"William still has to help load the dishwasher after dinner. The same will apply to George when he's a grown boy," a source said, while another source said, "They love it. Every day is bringing new things to learn."

As reported earlier, Kate and William have broken royal tradition by not employing a full-time nanny to look after the young prince, who is third in line to the throne. An insider revealed: "They're doing as much as they can by themselves. The baby is always with one of them, or asleep."

The public's first glimpse of Prince George of Cambridge came the day after he was born, when Kate and William emerged from the Lindo wing of St Mary's Hospital in London, carrying their bundle of joy.

"He already looks really different from when he was in the hospital!" a friend close to the two revealed.

The royal couple will reportedly take George to visit the Queen's Scottish estate of Balmoral later this month and he is expected to meet his great-grandfather, Prince Philip, for the first time.
