The Prince and Princess of Wales are “like a normal mum and dad” who throw themselves into events at their children’s school, a source has claimed.
Kate and William, both 41, are reported to be “hands-on” parents who never miss an event at Lambrook School in Berkshire, where their children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, are pupils.
Hello! The magazine reports that the royal couple participates in all major school activities, including “lining up for the raffle” at a recent fundraising campaign.
It has long been known that the Princess of Wales runs the school every day; However, a source told the publication that both parents are very involved with Lambrook events.
The source claimed that the future King and Queen tend to discreetly attend events such as carol concerts and will almost always be present, fitting into their busy schedules.
The Prince and Princess of Wales are “a normal mum and dad” who head out to events at Lambrook School in Berkshire, where their children Prince George, ten, Princess Charlotte, eight, and the Prince Louis, five, are students.
‘The day after Kate’s carol service (at Westminster Abbey), it was the school Christmas fair and everyone was there, like the year before.
‘I saw them queuing to get tickets for the raffle like everyone else. “They really act like a normal mom and dad,” the source said.
They added that the royal couple attended the school’s carol service at Eton College Chapel and sat next to the headmaster, as they joined in with all the songs.
Royal fans have previously commented on the couple’s parenting style after seeing Kate and William in public.
The Princess of Wales has previously been praised for her practical and “down-to-earth” parenting style.
A video of Kate raising young Prince George, which resurfaced last year, left royal fans praising the Princess of Wales’ “down-to-earth” parenting.
The clip was from the couple’s three-week royal tour of Australia in 2014, during which the royal couple, who at the time were the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, visited Sydney Zoo with their first-born child.
TikTok account Royal Watcher posted a video of Prince George looking absolutely fascinated by the bilbies at the zoo.
The heartwarming ten-second video shows George jumping for joy upon meeting the animal that bears his name as his mother supports him.
In the blink of an eye, the royal mother quickly walks over and wipes some of George’s dripping with her hand.
As the zookeeper approached the exhibit, Kate discreetly wiped her hand on the hem of her yellow dress.
The royal fan who runs the account wrote: ‘Kate wiping Prince George’s drool off her dress.
‘What a sensible mom!’
The clip has racked up almost 200,000 views since it was uploaded yesterday, and fans were delighted by Kate’s relatable mom moment.
One wrote: ‘Lol down to earth!’
Another added: ‘WOW she’s ahead of me. I didn’t see the dribble!’
During the engagement, Prince William had no fear when the bilby approached to eat from his hands and George also reached out to pet the creature.
However, the parents protectively pushed him away.
“He’s trying to grab his ear,” Kate said.
“If he gets it, he’ll never let it go,” said William, who kissed the top of his son’s head.
When the bouncer tried to bring the bilby closer to George, Kate intervened to stop him, thinking it was a bad idea.
“It actually has a pretty strong grip,” he said.
