The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge saw lockdown as “a rare gift” because royal children are usually “inevitably denied the privilege of extended periods of time with their parents,” claims a royal expert.
Prince William, 38, and Kate Middleton, 38, have spent most of the past six months at their Norfolk home, Anmer Hall, with their children, Prince George, seven, Princess Charlotte, five, and Prince Louis, two.
Now, royal commentator Victoria Arbiter claims that the period gave the Cambridge children a ‘privilege that generations of royal youths have inevitably been denied – extended time at home with only mum and dad’.
Writing for Australian site 9 Honey, she said the children would probably be “ the most adapted generation the royals have ever known, ” adding, “ For George, Charlotte and Louis, ultimately a lifelong duty awaits, but thanks to the relative normalcy that their childhood offers, their royal bells will feel less like jail time and more one to be proud of. ‘

The royal commentator said the couple has “ set a royal precedent for parenting ” with their techniques.
Victoria wrote that Prince William has long ‘strived’ to give his children the ‘stability he once craved’.

Almost exactly five months after the Queen told the British ‘We will meet again’ in a now historic speech to the country, she had her first socially distant encounter with all five Cambridges.
It was the first face-to-face meeting between the Duke and Duchess, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis since the lockdown began in March, reports The sun.
William and Kate and the three children are said to have visited Balmoral, in Scotland, where the Queen and Prince Philip have been in a Covid-safe ‘bubble’ since the beginning of August.
According to the sun, sources say the queen spent time with her great-grandchildren while out on the royal estate.
It comes weeks after The Queen reportedly reunited with William, Kate and their three children in Balmoral for the first time since the country fell into the coronavirus trap.
Prince Edward, Sophie of Wessex and Princess Anne were also reportedly on the 50,000-acre estate in late August.
The source told The Sun: ‘Like any family, they were desperate to get back together and over the moon it was possible this weekend.
They’ve all been there for a few days and while there are very strict procedures with social distancing, they have been able to find ways to see each other out.
“It has clearly been a difficult year for the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh to see the country deal with the pandemic, so they all wanted to go and show their support.”
Earlier this summer, Prince William revealed that his patience had been tested while homeschooling his kids in lockdown, and that he had struggled to teach math in Year 2.

Prince George is in his senior year of kindergarten in Thomas’s Battersea, in south west London.
His little sister Princess Charlotte joined him in September and is currently in reception class.
But the royals have been homeschooled since the start of the coronavirus pandemic, which Prince William admits has been a struggle.
Speaking on BBC Radio 5 Lives That Peter Crouch Podcast, which was recorded partly via Zoom and partly at Kensington Palace in March, the heir said: ‘I have found some pretty testing, not going to lie, trying to get the kids involved kind of work, it’s been an interesting few months.
“I’ve learned through homeschooling that my patience is much shorter than I thought, that’s probably been the biggest eye opener for me, and that my wife has super patience,” the Duke revealed.
