Duchess Catherine did the school drop the day after giving birth to Prince Louis

This brings a whole new meaning to super mum!

Prince William and Duchess Catherine have always been determined to raise their children like any other family, forgoing an army of nannies and instead just having the one.

But now a new report reveals just how dedicated the Cambridges are to their three young kids, Prince George, who just turned five, Princess Charlotte, three, and newborn son Prince Louis.

According to the Daily Mail's royal reporter Rebecca English, Duchess Catherine was spotted dropping of Prince George at his school St Thomas's in Battersea, London the morning after she gave birth to Prince Louis in April.

Indeed, having to stand on the steps of the Lindo Wing a mere seven hours after giving birth and introduce the world to her son would have been an achievement enough. But this latest claim really proves Kate is beyond strong.

And it's little wonder the 36-year-old mother-of-three feels comfortable enough to drop her oldest at the school gates, as English claims no one blinks at the sight of the royal couple.

"No one really gives Kate a second glance when she does the school drop-off. We have a Victoria's Secret model doing the school run, too, and the dads are far more interested in her," an insider explained to the news outlet of St Thomas's A-list attendees.

The report also revealed Prince William recently turned up to a parent meet-and-greet "dressed down in chinos, a jumper and wearing his glasses."

Wills and Kate aren't the only ones enjoying the welcoming environment of the school community.

"George loves it. He has really thrived there. And I know they [William and Kate] are immensely grateful to the media for giving him space. It's a very happy environment for him," the insider continued.

As Prince George rings in his fifth birthday, the young royal has developed a strong bond with his grandfather, Prince Charles.

Although last year it was claimed the future King of England didn't get to see his grandchildren nearly as much as he'd like as a result of his royal duties - which can total around 600 public engagements a year - and the fact Kate's parents live close by and can help out with babysitting duties.

"After what was undeniably a slightly difficult start, Charles — said to have privately railed about the amount of time he got to spend with his grandchildren compared with Kate's family — has become devoted to them," English revealed of Prince Charles' love for Prince George.

While a source added: "It is clear he is immensely proud of his sons and adores his grandchildren. I'd say things are better than they have been for a long time.

"Charles understands that Kate gravitates to her mother and family and is actually very grateful for everything the Middletons do," a second insider pointed out.
