(Newser) – Prince William and Kate Middleton are determined to be just like you and me—which apparently means making their own coffee in the morning. During the weekends they'll spend together during their first three years as husband and wife—the prince will be busy finishing his RAF tour of duty during the week—they will somehow get by without servants and butlers. Compare that to Prince Charles, who currently employs a staff of 149. The Telegraph reports that the pair thinks the servant-less move will help bolster the intimacy of their relationship.
