The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are on a royal visit to Scotland this week, where they met with local parents and their children during an engagement.
Kate Middleton has three kids: Prince George, her eldest, Princess Charlotte, her only daughter, and her youngest, Prince Louis and it seems the Duchess will be pushing some royal boundaries when it comes to raising them.
Body language expert Darren Stanton speaks on this.
“Heading to a Scottish school, we saw Duchess Kate and Will interacting with young school children, as well as mothers and their babies,” said the author.
“It was clear to see their parental side shining through.” Adding that: “Kate’s maternal instincts kicking in throughout the engagement, like when she read to a baby or stopped to interact with a group of young children – kneeling to ensure she was on their level.”
Continuing on to say: “Keen to get stuck in, Kate kneeling and sitting with the children alongside William suggests how the Royal couple are keen to do things their own way. Kate and William have shown they are going to operate within the tried and tested boundaries of senior royals, yet they have a more hands-on approach and a desire to get in amongst the thick of things with everyday members of the public.”
“Kate and Will were quite happy to sit cross-legged on the floor, interact with other parents and play with the children,” said Stanton. “Such hands-on behavior suggests a lot about how they intend to raise their children. With the couple intending to be 100% around for their children while juggling their royal commitments as senior royals.”
