One Thing Kate Doesn’t Allow Her Children To Do During Lockdown
The two eldest Cambridge children are stuck at home as school all over the UK are closed down due to the ongoing crisis.
Due to the ongoing pandemic, lots of people have had to adjust to different ways of working, different ways of life even. The same can be said for the royal family too.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, along with their three children, are currently self-isolating at their country home, Anmer Hall, in Norfolk, located in the grounds of the Queen’s Sandringham Estate.
And with school out, you might think Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis are spending their time lounging in front of the TV or playing video games, but you would be mistaken.
Super-mom Kate is rather strict when it comes to her little ones spending time in front of screens.
“The emphasis during this time will be on arts and crafts, painting and doing things that aren’t screen-orientated.
“Kate is usually very strict on screen time and keeps it to a minimum,” royal author Katie Nicholl told OK! magazine.

Kate prefers that they spend their time playing outside, simply enjoying nature and putting that youthful energy to good use.
“They’ve got climbing frames, swings and a pond, and each of the children is in charge of their own little patch of the kitchen garden.”
This comes just after Kate revealed the “mean” fib she had told to the children.
Last week Prince William and Kate made an appearance on BBC Breakfast, as part of their new Every Mind Matters campaign. During the video call, Kate revealed that she had been keeping a little secret from her children, as a way of keeping them in the swing of homeschooling.
“Don’t tell the children, we’ve actually kept it going through the holidays. I feel very mean,” she laughed.
Kate also admitted that keeping the kids in routine has turned out more “challenging” than expected, however, she also revealed she has her tricks. Ticking off lots of activities helped things feel rewarding for the children, the mother-of-three explains.
“You get to the end of the day, you write down the list of the things you have done on that day.
“You sort of pitch a tent, take the tent down again, cooked, baked, you get to the end of the day, they have had a lovely time.
“It’s amazing how much you can cram into one day, that’s for sure.”
