(USATODAY.com) - This ought to make their day at the Golden Arches: Duchess Kate, driving herself, baby Prince George and a nanny, stopped at a McDonald's on a road trip in the U.K, heading back to her Kensington Palace cottage today.
Apparently, she stopped to feed the baby and was spotted, dressed in her Ralph Lauren tweed jacket and skinny black jeans, by paparazzi. The picturesshow her smiling and waving to a few onlookers as she headed into the McDonald's, and then returning to her car.
With her, as British media were quick to point out, was Jessie Webb, 71, the former beloved nanny to Prince William. Reports surfaced last month that Will and Kate were hoping to persuade her to come out of retirement and help with baby George, at least for a while. Looks like their campaign may have succeeded.
The Duchess of Cambridge was likely headed back to London from Wales, where she and Will have finished packing up their rented farmhouse after nearly four years there, to move into a huge new apartment in Kensington Palace.
Will's last day as a RAF search-and-rescue helicopter pilot was Tuesday, according to the BBC's royals reporter, Peter Hunt. His new job, which may be with the Blues and Royals regiment in London near the palace, has not yet been officially announced.
But if, as expected, they head to Australia and New Zealand next year on an official royal tour with George, they can mail their letters back with new royal baby stamps. The Kiwis today issued a new set - New Zealand's first stamps celebrating a royal birth - using the pictures flashed around the world when the couple emerged from a London hospital with their baby the day after his birth on July 22.
Meanwhile, Will and brother Prince Harry were busy today pretending to be 'masters of the universe," doing billion-Euro deals at a brokerage firm in London to raise money for their charities. They also attended a funeral in Essex for their father's best friend, Hugh van Cutsem, who died last week.
Harry later attended a gala at the Dorchester Hotel in London for WellChild, one of his charities, to hand out awards to "inspirational" children battling cancer and other serious diseases.
