    While whipping up festive creations for those working over the festive period, the Duchess spoke to baking legend Mary about her own skills in the kitchen, revealing to the former Great British Bake Off judge that she bakes birthday cakes for her three children, a pastime that has become a bit of a tradition in the house.

    Speaking about her youngest, Catherine said, “One of Louis’ first words was ‘Mary’, because right at his height are all my cooking books in the kitchen bookshelf.

    “And children are really fascinated by faces,” she continued, “and your faces are all over your cooking books and he would say ‘That’s Mary Berry’ … so he would definitely recognise you if he saw you today.”
