Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, Wants Her Kids To Live “Real Life”
As explained by a royal expert, the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton has expressed wishes for her children to experience “real life”. She has three children with Prince Williams, Prince George (6), Prince Charlotte (4) and Prince Louis (1). She wants them to actively participate in outdoor activities.
Kate Middleton Wants Her Kids To Have Same Experience As Other Kids
A royal source told The Sun:
“Kate has always wanted the children to live in the real world… She and William don’t want them to live in a gilded bubble”
The Duke is a well-known fan of the sport, especially football. Apart from being the President of the Football Association of the UK, Prince William often visits the local stadium. This one time, instead of sitting in a VIP box, Duke and Duchess preferred sitting among the crowd. The couple, with their kids, enjoyed watching Aston Villa thrash Norwich City 5-1.
Kate, herself, admitted that becoming a mother is not always easy. After the birth of her second child, Charlotte, she told:
“Becoming a mother has been such a rewarding and wonderful experience. However, at times it has also been a huge challenge – even for me, who has support at home that most mothers do not.
Nothing can really prepare you for the sheer overwhelming experience of what it means to become a mother. It’s full of complex emotions of joy, exhaustion, love and worry, all mixed together.”
The Duke and Duchess Are Inspired By Diana
Kate admits that while her childhood inspires her parenting skills, she’s also inspired by the late Princess Diana. That’s because Princess Diana was involved in breaking the royal parenting mold. The late mother-in-law broke tradition when she decided to take young William along with her to tour Australia and New Zealand instead of leaving him with nannies. The Duke, back then, was just nine months old. Princess Diana used to take her children to the nearest McDonald’s, movies and theme parks for them to live a life as normal as possible.
Similarly, the Duchess of Cambridge believes that being outdoor, adventuring is the key to happiness and healthy childhood. She has done her best to teach George to swim and takes Charlotte to tennis lessons as well.
