"It's so hard cooking curry with the family though. The children have a portion with no spice, [William's] is medium. And I quite like it hot. Charlotte is pretty good with heat."
According to PEOPLE, one person at the event joked with William that he probably won't find a mildly spiced curry in Pakistan, William responds:
"Me and heat, not so good. I love spice but not heat. I'm looking forward to it anyway. I'm going to need a bigger suit."

Homemade curry is one of the traditions Middleton tries to practice to give her children a sense of normalcy in their lives. A source close to the royal family tells PEOPLE,
"She wants to emulate her upbringing, living in the countryside with a close-knit family. She desperately wants that normality for her own kids."
"She is an adoring mother, and she is contributing publicly in the way we would want her to. You see it more and more. The young student has turned into our future Queen," the source reveals.

It is reported, the tour of Pakistan is the first trip the royal family has made in over a decade. William and Kate will be in Pakistan from October 14 to 18.
The last tour was led by Prince Charles and Camilla, in 2006, when it had been requested by Britain's Foreign and Commonwealth Office.
