Kate Middleton may have been following royal tradition since she married into the British royalty. From the look of things, however, she is putting her foot down as far as raising Prince George and Princess Charlotte is concerned. She is adamant that she has her own way and not going the traditional royal one.
Insiders at the affairs of the royal family say that Kate Middleton wants to keep the stuffy royal protocol far from their private home at Kensington Palace as much as possible. She wants to raise George and Charlotte using a more down-to-earth approach. For a start, she wants her kids to be out of the public eye and not to have any ideas that they are royals.
An insider revealed that while George and Charlotte look as perfect young royals in photos, they are treated as regular kids at home upon orders of Kate Middleton. In fact, just like any kid their age, they are allowed to play in the mud, fall off ponies and prone to have screaming tantrums once in a while.
The modern way that George and Charlotte are brought up has never been seen in royal history before reports Mail Online. Royal insiders say that it would certainly horrify Queen Elizabeth especially because the two are in direct line to the British throne. But, Kate will not have it any other way.
The Middletons are a closely-knit family and Carole is the person her daughter turns to for baby advice especially when she became a first-time mom. It doesn’t come as a big surprise that Kate Middleton wants to have her kids’ upbringing along the line of how she was brought up than Prince William’s.
To show Kate Middleton is determined in giving George and Charlotte a different childhood than one expected of a royal, George is enrolled in a regular, co-ed and middle-class school. It is in suburban London, which is very near Kensington Palace and has 540 students according to The Telegraph. The school is a far cry from the one Prince William attended, the Wetherby Prep School.
From the way they are being brought up by Kate Middleton and Prince William, it looks like Prince George and Princess Charlotte will have a pretty normal childhood. Kate after all had a typical middle-class upbringing and she turned out more than okay. Do you agree? Share us your thoughts in the space below.
