As Prince William and Kate Middleton raise their family within the royal sphere, they are focused on not only ensuring that Prince George, who will one day be king, is prepared for his role, but also that Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis are given essential roles as they mature.
Additionally, the Prince and Princess of Wales are also applying their own methods to raising their kids, and a royal expert suggests that this includes taking on roles outside of simply being parents.
With kids growing up so fast, it is important for parents to not only be present in their children’s lives, but also to actively teach them traits and skills.
Prince William and Kate Middleton understand this and are making sure that their children are prepared for their future roles, not just as members of the royal family, but also as individuals in society.
The children of the royal family
In the eyes of many royal fans, Prince William and Kate Middleton’s three children have grown up before our eyes. It seems like just yesterday that the couple announced the birth of their first child, Prince George, and future King of England. Since then, the royal family has seen significant changes such as Prince Harry’s departure and Queen Elizabeth’s passing.
However, the royals have also had the blessing of welcoming new family members. For William and Kate, this means the addition of Princess Charlotte in 2015 and Prince Louis in 2018.
Raising their children to not only be good human beings but also equipped with the necessary tools to be working members of the Royal Family is a huge responsibility for the couple.
While Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis may not have as major roles as Prince George in the future, they will still play important parts in the monarchy. Despite this, William and Kate are said to be intent on giving their children as normal of a childhood as possible.
How William and Kate are raising their children
According to royal expert and body language expert Judi James, Prince William and Kate Middleton’s parenting style is unique and allows for freedom and fun for their children.
James told the Daily Mail, “George, Charlotte and Louis are not only allowed to be playful, fun, spontaneous, and even cheeky in public, they are actively encouraged by their mum and dad, who often look at their most proud and most doting when they are doing so.”
The expert acknowledged that the Prince and Princess of Wales have a unique parenting style, considering the children’s future roles within the royal family, but also emphasized the importance of allowing them to have fun.
James said, “William and Kate’s parenting duties were always going to be unique as they’re inducting a prince, princess, and future king into the rules, traditions, and formalities of the royal family as well as allowing three small children to have as much fun and freedom as possible as they do so.
” She added that their recent public outings show how well they are managing to balance their parenting duties with a more normal aspect, making them look like any other family taking their kids on a day out.
Want to be their “best friends”
Prince William and Kate Middleton have a unique parenting style when it comes to raising their children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis. According to royal expert Judi James, they want their kids to have a “normal” childhood, free to be playful, fun, spontaneous, and even cheeky in public. The couple often look at their most proud and doting when their children are doing so.
They’ve turned mostly to Kate Middleton’s parents when it comes to parenting, as they prefer the “Middleton model” for their children; hard-working parents and “lots of love in the house.”
Furthermore, William and Kate aspire to have a close relationship with their children, similar to that of Kate’s parents. According to royal expert Duncan Larcombe, by the time Kate was in her early twenties, she counted her mother and father on the list of her best friends.
They want the same for their children, but also have to drip-feed George and Charlotte and Louis into the public domain. If they had the choice, William and Kate wouldn’t let their children appear in public at all.
Prince George raised in a “very different way” from his father
William and Kate want their children to have a “normal” childhood, so they’ve turned mostly to Kate Middleton’s parents when it comes to how they’re raising their children. According to royal expert Duncan Larcombe, William and Kate prefer the “Middleton model” for their children.
That includes hard-working parents and “lots of love in the house.” Not only that, but William and Kate don’t want their children to be just their children, but also their friends.
However, the public has to fall in love with Prince George as a little boy, as he’s going to be playing catch up for the rest of his life. The royal expert argued that if they’d had the choice, William and Kate wouldn’t let Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis appear in public at all.
While William and Kate are said to have applied the “Middleton model,” there are other, elder influences in raising Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis. Kate explained that her grandmother also had a significant influence on how she was raised when she grew up, and she try to incorporate a lot of the experiences that she gave to her children now.
Prince George’s future
While William and Kate Middleton strive to give their children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis, a normal childhood, they also take into consideration their future roles as members of the royal family. Kate has spoken about her “very happy” childhood and the sacrifices her parents made for her and her siblings, and how she incorporates those experiences into her parenting.
Additionally, the couple has turned to Kate’s parents for guidance in raising their children, utilizing the “Middleton model” which includes hard-working and loving parents.
However, as the future King of England, Prince George has a unique role to fulfill. Although his parents aim to give him a normal childhood, they also understand the importance of preparing him for his future duties as a royal.
According to royal historian Robert Lacey, William and Kate have already informed George of his future responsibilities as a king, and it’s expected that he will begin working full-time as a royal by age 35, if not sooner. With a strong family background, William and Kate are dedicated to raising their children in a way that prepares them for the future while also allowing them to enjoy their childhood.
While William and Kate are raising their children with a “normal” childhood, they have turned to Kate Middleton’s parents for guidance and have applied the “Middleton model” in raising Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis.
Kate also revealed that her grandmother had a significant influence on her upbringing, and she tries to incorporate those experiences into her children’s lives. However, as the future King, Prince George will have many engagements and responsibilities to handle. William and Kate are said to have already prepared him for his future role.
