Knowing how draining the spotlight can be, Prince William and Duchess Kate Middleton have taken several steps to protect their three young children from the public. Though we see Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis at family events and on special occasions–their parents do everything in their power to shied their littles from the press.

The Cambridges are fairly old school when it comes to their parenting. Their kids have limited screen time and instead, spend hours outside each day playing and exploring — no matter what the weather may be.

The royal siblings’ nanny, Maria Borrallo — has been with the family since the eldest prince was just eight months old, and she is there to prove structure and familiarity when the Cambridges are traveling or at events. Though the trio shares a nanny –their parents are extremely hands-on. In reality, Princess Charlotte, Prince George, and Prince Louis’ childhoods are much more normal than you’d expect.

This is what Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis’ childhoods are like behind-the-scenes

Duchess Kate Middleton shocked customers at a supermarket in the U.K. in late October 2019, when she was seen shopping for her children’s Halloween costumes. Apparently, she was super chill and only had one bodyguard with her. Though the royals have never shown the public any photos of the Baby Cambridges Halloween festivities –knowing that their mom shopped for their costumes is a major hint that they have normal childhoods.

An insider told US Weekly that the duchess and the prince raise their children the same way the late Princess Diana raised Prince William and Prince Harry. The source explained,

They like to watch movies together, grill on the BBQ, and play board games. William loves McDonald’s and Burger King! They love playing together and being creative. Painting, baking and building things are all activities they enjoy, and now that Louis’ a bit older [Louis is one now], he gets involved too.

Inside Princess Charlotte and Prince George’s sibling relationship

From the photos and videos we’ve seen of the older Cambridge kiddos, it looks like Princess Charlotte runs the house. The source told Us Weekly, that Prince George and his sister sometimes even get into a bit of a tiff. They explained, “[It’s] usually over silly things like toys or what TV shows they want to watch. But most of the time they get on.”

Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis personalities are all very different

The Cambridges certainly have their hands full with their little ones. Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis all have distinct personalities and it sounds like a ball of fun. The insider revealed,

Charlotte’s extremely confident and loves attention, whereas George is more reserved, although he is starting to come out of his shell. George is always looking out for his younger brother and sister and is already showing traits of making an excellent leader. [Louis is a] real mommy’s boy.

Though the eldest prince might be showing leadership qualities, his parents have decided not to tell him that he will be king one day. Instead, they’re allowing him to blissfully enjoy his childhood.
