Former palace chef Carolyn Robb recalls what Prince Harry was like as a boy

Carolyn Robb, the Kensington Palace chef who cooked for Prince Charles and Princess Diana for a total of 11 years, speaks exclusively to Yahoo UK about what Prince Harry was like as a boy.

As part of 'The Royal Story' video series, Robb reveals a young Harry would often hide from his nannies in the kitchen cupboards.

"You’d hear little footsteps tearing along the passageway above the kitchen and then he’d come flying down the stairs into the kitchen," recalls Robb.

"Quite often, the nanny was in hot pursuit so it was ‘quick, quick, I need somewhere to hide.’

"Fortunately we had some quite low cupboards where the breakfast cereals were kept that opened on both sides, so we could quickly take out the boxes of cornflakes and hide Harry. By the time the nanny arrived, he was no where to be seen - except usually his giggling would give him away."
