Kate and Wills' top parenting tips

Kristine Tarbert

Despite being members of the Royal family and having a nanny to give them a helping hand, it’s clear that Prince William and Kate are very hands-on parents.

And they have revealed a lot about their parenting style over the past few years, as we enjoy watching Prince George, four, and Princess Charlotte, two, grow up.

The couple have given us ordinary folk a few parenting tips we can all learn from, which they will definitely need come April, when it gets busier at Kensington Palace after they welcome their third child.

You may be pleased to hear that even Will and Kate resort to the use of technology to entertain their kiddies on occasion.

For example, during long trips, Prince William revealed he uses an iPad to keep them amused.

Currently George loves Peppa Pig, and is getting more and more excited about Fireman Sam, which means William has to as well.

The Prince told Radio1 that they often sit down as a family and watch kids’ programs.

“You have to pretend you’re really interested in it because George gets very upset if you're not showing due diligence to the characters,” he said.

But arts, culture and history also plays a large part in Kate and William’s upbringing of their children.

Kate has a degree in the history of art and likes spending time doing crafts with her children.

She also regularly takes them to the Natural History Museum, with George in particular visiting often.

“George loves three dimensional sculptures. He does come here quite often,” she said during a visit in July 2016.

Finally the parents have both said they want their children to grow up and be able to open up about their feelings.

William, Kate and brother Harry are all heavily involved in mental health charities, and want to pass those lessons on to their own children.

"Catherine and I are clear that we want both George and Charlotte to grow up feeling able to talk about their emotions and feelings,” William told Calm magazine.

The Duke and Duchess are expecting their third child this April after announcing the pregnancy in October.
