In addition, the royal biographer also commented on the Princess of Wales’s portraits of her children, which the family often publish on their birthdays.
According to Angela, Kate wanted to develop her photography skills to “protect” George from having to pose for formal portraits.
Highlighting the positive effect this approach has had, the expert said: “It seems like George couldn’t care less about being caught on camera and that’s wonderful.”
“The way Kate handled it was very, very good.”
In addition to this, the royal expert spoke about William and Kate’s daily parenting approach.

By doing this, the expert says that the Princess of Wales is trying to teach her children how to take care of themselves in little ways.
Meanwhile, Angela noted how Prince George once ‘clung’ to his parents when appearing in public, but now seems more and more confident.
