Although Prince William and Duchess Kate have become used to the pecks that come with the royal life, the duo aren't giving their children any form of special treatment.

...the Duchess of Cambridge had said that while she understood that it wasn't up to her to do everything; she still had bouts of mom guilt.

This fact became public knowledge after an insider told Closer Weekly that William and Kate were raising their three children – Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis – "to be grounded."

The source, who had spoken exclusively to Closer Weekly, revealed that:

"They receive gifts on their birthday and at Christmas. And Carole [Middleton], spoils her grandchildren rotten, but when you meet them they're just regular kids..."

Besides that, George and Charlotte have become known to receive the same type of treatment at school as George's teachers know better than to remind him about his status as the future King of England.

The disclosure came only a few days after Kate had highlighted her struggles with motherhood during her appearance on the "Happy Mum, Happy Baby" podcast.

According to Today, the Duchess of Cambridge had said that while she understood that it wasn't up to her to do everything; she still had bouts of mom guilt.

Kate also explained that, over the years, she has learned that a mother's emotional well-being, not just her physical health, could affect a baby's development.

Additionally, the Duchess and her husband have also noted the importance of "alone time" as couples. Back in the summer of 2018, the family of five went on their first holiday when they paid a visit to the private island of Mustique, according to Hello.

The site reported that William and Kate had taken time off from looking after the kids and treated themselves to a gold-themed party.

The couple had reportedly dressed "island chic" to the Splash of Gold get-together with William wearing a Pink house Mustique shirt to support the local brand.
