Even Hollywood stars have learned Kate Middleton’s parenting way. However, she was influenced by the way of raising another celebrity’s child to keep her child a proper childhood.
Royal British fans are used to seeing Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis appear in formal royal ceremonies. They appeared with Queen Elizabeth on the balcony of Buckingham Palace until Trooping the Colo. But they also witnessed the innocent childhoods of these children when they were playing in the garden, eating snacks from the trunk of the car while Dad was playing polo.
It was all because Princess Kate always wanted her to have a full childhood the same way her mother-in-law Diana – did with her two sons, including Prince William. Witnessing the growth and maturation of William and Harry, fans can see how Princess Diana took the time to give her two sons the most normal childhood possible despite being a member of Royal.
Biographer Ingrid Seward, author of the Royal Children, said even the Queen in the 50s said she wanted her children to be raised as normal as possible. But the truth is that Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip often leave their children at home on trips. Their children stay at home with the nanny and phone contact with their parents.
Princess Diana was not like that. Prince William and Prince Harry had the most normal childhood possible when their mothers took them to places children like to go to amusement parks and even McDonald’s.
Diana also made sure to spend a lot of time with her sons, even taking the nearly 1-year-old William to travel abroad. And Kate has obviously been influenced by her mother-in-law in parenting. The royal couple took Prince George on a trip to Down Under when he was 9 months old and took Princess Charlotte to Canada when she was 2 years old.
Even sitting down on the same level of conversation with their children is the way they learned at Princess Diana. By doing so, they were able to soothe babies and help them overcome moments of obstacles. And that’s the way they inspire others to follow when teaching their children, including Hollywood star Anna Hathaway.
