The royal family has been making it to the headlines quite often in the recent past and Prince Harry and Meghan Markle took over the front pages of all the British tabloids these past few weeks. Meanwhile, Kate Middleton and Prince William have been going about their business attending to royal duties and engagements and it sometimes makes us wonder how Kate Middleton manages to fulfill her royal duty and tend to the kids, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.
Over her time in the royal family, Kate Middleton has become an inspiration to many. She is a caring mother to three and recently opened up in an interview, which is rare for the royal family. She opened up with Happy Mum, Happy Baby podcast in which she got candid about her parenting style, in a bid to promote her new initiative, the Five Big Questions survey, which is heavily focused on early childhood development.
During the candid interview, she was asked to share an aspect from her own childhood which she hopes to pass on to her children to which Kate revealed, “One is quality of relationships. So, those moments that you spend with people that are around you,”. Furthermore, Kate Middleton recalled her own childhood and how her amazing grandmother would devote a lot of time to them playing, gardening and cooking. Kate confessed that she tries to incorporate the experiences that her grandmother gave her into the experiences she gives to her own children.
“There are also the environments you spend time in as well: a happy home, a safe environment. As children, we spent a lot of time outside and it’s something I’m really passionate about. I think it’s so great for physical and mental wellbeing and laying [developmental] foundations,” the 38-year-old mother shared and added, “It’s such a great environment to spend time in, building those quality relationships without the distractions of ‘I’ve got to cook’ and ‘I’ve got to do this’. And actually, it’s so simple.”
