Sometimes with all the palaces, crowns and $40 million weddings it can be difficult to remember that members of the British royal family are actually just people.
And looking at what’s causing a stir in the UK this week, it’s clear we need to try harder.
Because Kate Middleton shutting her own car door should not cause this many people to lose their minds.
The Duchess of Cambridge was recorded stepping out of a car at Paddington Recreation Ground in London on Tuesday and then shutting the door – gasp – herself. Well, sort of. Another person finishes the job. But she made the initial door shutting motion.

This came a week after Meghan Markle did the same thing on her first solo engagement, resulting in endless praise for her “normal” behaviour that proved just how “down-to-earth” she was.
