The Duke of Cambridge mixed fatherhood with royal duties on Friday.
He proudly told of how he had cradled a smiling Prince George in his arms early in the day before heading to a homelessness center in Sunderland in the northeast of England.
There, got his hands dirty – well, dusty – in the kitchen, sprinkling flour and rolling out dough to make chapati bread for a curry meal.
His thoughts turned to home when asked about his 4-month-old. "He was saying he had been holding him and his baby had been smiling into the mirror," said Jennifer Sams, 19, at the center.

The Duchess of Cambridge put up a fight against bullying Wednesday morning, spending a second day visiting a charity, this time in London's financial district.
Arriving right before 10:30 at a forum for one of her favorite charities, Place2Be, which provides school-based mental health and emotional support services to kids and parents, Kate received a bouquet from a schoolgirl as the day's wind kept flipping up her skirt.
Inside, experts discussed such topics as cyberbullying, self-harm, special education needs and preventing addiction, all of which proved of such interest to Kate that she decided to stay a full hour longer than planned.

Little Prince George is little no more!
The infant heir to the throne of England is getting big already, his proud mother, the Duchess of Cambridge, said Tuesday as she and husband William made a joint royal outing, leaving George with babysitters.
Aaron Russell-Andrews, an ex-convict who had an official role at a charity event Tuesday for troubled youth, said Kate told him George was "growing very fast" and would fit snugly in the vest, made for a 6-month-old, that Russell-Andrews gave her as a present.

Prince William and Prince Harry helped lead Britain in commemorating the country's war dead on Sunday.
William, 31, who served as a RAF search and rescue helicopter pilot until September, was watched by wife Kate as he laid a wreath of poppies at a memorial in central London. He followed his brother, army captain Harry, 29, who donned his ceremonial Household Cavalry great coat with wide red collar, in paying tribute on behalf of his father, Prince Charles (who is in India with wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall).
As in previous years, Kate, 31, watched from a balcony above Whitehall, central London, alongside William’s aunt Sophie, Countess of Wessex, and Tim Laurence, the husband of Princess Anne. Kate donned a brooch in the shape of a poppy – the traditional symbol worn to honor those who have perished in wars.

Following his late mother's lead, Prince William is taking a practical approach to his leadership role at the Royal Marsden Hospital.
Like Princess Diana before him, William is the president of the Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust – a patronage he took on in 2007. After witnessing two operations take place Thursday, he stepped out of the London hospital's Chelsea location and, smiling, declared he felt "good – still standing!"
In images reminiscent of his late mother's viewing of a heart operation in 1996, William, 31, scrubbed up and wore a surgical mask to see the experts at work.

Prince William and Kate surprised commuters at a London tube station Thursday when they visited volunteers raising money for war veterans.
They took a specially chartered red London bus a short quarter mile from their palace home to the High Street Kensington station.
There, they met and chatted with charity workers who were selling the traditional red poppy emblems Britons wear to commemorate casualties of war.

Taylor Swift is used to the pressure of performing for millions. But putting on a show for just relatively few can be even more nerve-wracking – especially when the group includes a future king.
"I'm really excited," the singer, 23, told the BBC before Wednesday's CMAs about her Nov. 26 charity gig at the home of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. "I'm really stoked. This is the first thing I've performed at for any kind of royal engagement – very, very honored."
But also very, very nervous, at least when it comes to the proper etiquette – her "her royal P's and Q's," as BBC Radio 2's Patrick Kielty put it.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's home is set to be transformed into a winter wonderland for a charitable evening headlined by Taylor Swift.
Jon Bon Jovi and James Blunt are also scheduled to perform during the Winter Whites Gala – to benefit homelessness charity Centrepoint, which William works closely with – at Kensington Palace on Nov. 26.
Bon Jovi will also be honored with the Centrepoint Great Britain Youth Inspiration Award, that recognizes the rocker's humanitarian work as founder of the Soul Foundation, which aids families and individuals in economic despair.

His maternal grandmother, Carole Middleton, "did say he has a nice pair of bellows on him – a good set of lungs!" Middleton family friend Martin Fidler tells PEOPLE in this week's cover story.
