According to Vanity Fair, Prince William and Kate Middleton do their best to keep their children grounded and allow them to be kids. “Because of who they are, William and Kate have had to be highly organized parents,” a source told The Sun. “But as parents, Wills and Kate have developed this brilliant knack of letting as much as they can seem spontaneous and that’s how the children see it.” The insider also revealed that Kate’s upbringing helps her to keep her own feet on the ground and be an involved parent.
“She comes from a supportive family so she’s very keen on family networks and networks of friends and organizations,” the source said. “As parents they are also very good at rolling up their sleeves and helping out with school events; sports days, fundraisers and that sort of thing. They try to be just like normal parents with normal parenting challenges. No one ever jumps the queue for anything. They just try to fit in,” the insider explained, revealing that Prince George and Princess Charlotte go by the names “George and Charlotte Cambridge” at school. “George might be a future king but for now he’s just another little boy. They are always at great pains to make sure the three of them have as normal a childhood as possible,” the source explained.
It seems that William and Kate’s parenting style is more relatable than we thought.
