While attending the royal family’s annual Trooping the Colour parade, Catherine scooped her daughter, Charlotte, up in her arms after something made the young royal unhappy. Just goes to show while she might be a member of the royal family, Catherine’s still a mom, and when her kids have meltdowns or moments of grumpiness she still has to deal with them like any regular parent. Except in her case, there’s a good chance the event will be captured on camera for the public to see. 

While at a polo match in June 2018, Catherine sat in the grass with her two oldest children, George and Charlotte. At one point while the kids played, something happened to make George upset. In another regular parenting moment, Catherine talked to her son presumably about what had been bothering him and helped him sort it out.
