Every kid knows the 5-second rule — even Princess Charlotte! While eating some freshly made s’mores during a volunteering event with the 3rd Upton Scout Group in Slough on Monday, the 8-year-old royal was spotted dropping a piece of the graham cracker, chocolate and marshmallow treat on the ground.
Undeterred, she reached down and grabbed the piece off the grass and popped it in her mouth, as seen in a video posted by Hello! magazine.
Princess Charlotte ‘s relatable moment was almost missed — in the same video, her scene-stealing younger brother Prince Louis, 5, was eating his s’more and enjoying it enthusiastically. He rolled his neck in delight at the dessert and even knocked into his sister before mom Kate Middleton pulled him into an embrace.
@hellomag Prince Louis remains the most relatable royal! 🤣 Did you spot Princess Catherine’s nickname for the mini royal? 🤭 #princelouis #princesscatherine ♬ original sound — HELLO!
The volunteer event with the Scouts was a family affair, with Prince William, Princess Kate, and all three Wales children, including 9-year-old Prince George, joining the event. It was a part of the Big Help Out, a nationwide charity initiative in honor of the coronation of King Charles and Queen Camilla.
Scouting is a cause close to Princess Kate, 41, who is the joint President of the Scout Association.
Kate was a Brownie as a young girl alongside her sister, Pippa, who attended King Charles’ coronation on Saturday with their brother and parents. The royal became a patron of the organization in 2012, helping to raise volunteer numbers, and has been a regular visitor to their troops since.
When she wasn’t sneaking s’mores off the ground, Princess Charlotte acted as a devoted big sister role to her younger sibling, according to Anne Edwards, an adult Scout helper who worked with Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis. The siblings painted cinder blocks to support wooden planters, where Edwards caught an adorable exchange between the siblings.
«She was advising him, obviously! ‘Don’t do that, Louis!’ — things like that,» Edwards says.
«Louis was very enthusiastic and did a good job. He was determined to do it all by himself, and he managed to dig the whole paintbrush in, flick it up, and managed to cover quite a few of us in paint!» Edwards tells PEOPLE with a laugh. «He was doing a good job!»
«They were very relaxed and joining in, like normal kids. That was what was really nice about it,» the volunteer says.
