Prince William and Kate Middleton's Parenting as They Raise Royal Kids during Lockdown
Prince William and Kate Middleton have adopted several golden rules and hacks as they parent their three royal kids, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis, during the ongoing pandemic.
The past few months have been hectic for parents all over the world as the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has caused schools worldwide to close down, making kids stuck at home.
Unfortunately, royal parents, Prince William and Kate haven't been an exemption to this as they have had to come up with ingenious ways to cater to their three kids, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis.
Back in May, the doting parents involved their kids in packing fresh pasta and delivering it alongside some other food items to seniors in Sandringham Estate.
However, amid the struggle of homeschooling, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have remained graceful and upbeat as they openly share their tips to encourage parents worldwide.
According to HELLO! Magazine, William and Kate's golden nuggets of parenting include good communication, fun activities, volunteering, and keeping in touch with family. At one point during the lockdown, they have actively applied it.
TALKING ABOUT THE PANDEMIC
The Cambridges have been open about the current pandemic to their kids with Kate confessing that although it hasn't been utterly smooth, she is keen on being honest with them As noted by HELLO! Magazine while explaining how she and William spoke to the kids about COVID-19, she said:
"And although you don't want to scare them and make it too overwhelming, I think it is appropriate to acknowledge it in the simple ways and age-appropriate ways."
The duchess also spoke about homeschooling back in April, admitting that she was feeling "mean" for continuing the kids' lessons during the Easter Holidays.
FUN ACTIVITIES FOR THE KIDS
One thing parents have struggled with during this lockdown is coming up with fun activities for their kids so that they are not bored. However, this hasn't been the case for the royal parents as they adopt online games and outdoor activities to keep the kids busy.
This was evident during Prince Louis' second birthday when they released official celebratory photos. HELLO! Magazine points out that the images showed the little royal with a paint-stained hand and huge smile on his face alongside his rainbow artwork.
When it is not hand painting, it's culinary activities, as seen in the case of Princess Charlotte's fifth birthday official portrait.
The second born of the Cambridges proudly held a bag of pasta cooked the previous week by the entire family, as noted by HELLO! Magazine.
VOLUNTEERING AND COMMUNITY SERVICE
Amid the homeschooling and fun activities, Prince William and Kate have not forgotten to teach their kids the most important skill of all: empathy.
It was reported that back in May, the doting parents involved their kids in packing fresh pasta and delivering it alongside some other food items to seniors in Sandringham Estate.
HELLO! Magazine recalls that the kids also joined their parents to participate in the Clap for Carers Campaign for NHS workers who were on the frontline during the pandemic.
All the kids joined their parents outside their home to clap for the health workers, as seen in a video shared on Kensington Palace Instagram.
