When Is Prince George and Princess Charlotte’s Bedtime?

Unlike royal children of past generations, Prince George and Princess Charlotte are getting the opportunity to have childhoods that are as normal and as carefree as possible. Their parents, Duchess Kate Middleton and Prince William, have worked hard to make sure that their children aren’t thrust into the spotlight. Instead, the little Cambridges –including their little brother, Prince Louis, spend time playing outside, cooking with their mom, and enjoying other fun excursions.

Still, being a child also comes with its own set of rules and regulations including the ever-dreaded bedtime. You might be surprised by Prince George and Princess Charlotte’s super strict bedtime.

What time do Prince George and Princess Charlotte go to bed?

Every evening, except perhaps when they are traveling or at an extra special royal outing, Prince George and Princess Charlotte are in bed at 7 p.m. sharp. Typically, their parents are home in time to put them in bed, but when the duke and duchess are unavailable, their nanny, Maria Teresa Turrion Borrallo is on hand to tuck them in at night.

Why is Prince George and Princess’ bedtime so strict?

A 7 p.m. bedtime might seem extreme–but little kids need a lot more sleep then we do. Prince Charlotte will be turning four this year, and Prince George will be six. According to Web MD,

Children at this age typically go to bed between 7 p.m. and 9 p.m. and wake up around 6 a.m. and 8 a.m., just as they did when they were younger. At age 3, most children are still napping, while at age 5, most are not. Naps gradually become shorter, as well. New sleep problems do not usually develop after age 3.

Well-rested children eliminate excessive tantrums and keeps them alert, focused and happy throughout the day. Prince Louis’ probably goes to bed around the same time as his siblings, but he also takes naps throughout the day.

What do Prince George and Princess Charlotte’s bedrooms look like?

We’re certain that Prince George and Princess Charlotte’s bedrooms are warm, comforting, and invite them to want to sleep when it’s time to say goodnight. Both of their bedrooms are decorated with IKEA furniture. Since Prince George is obsessed with dinosaurs, police cars, and fire trucks, we can assume that those toys and themes are splashed all across the tiny prince’s bedroom. Princess Charlotte might have pieces like the MAMMUT chair and table which are whimsical and reminiscent of Disney and the FLISAT dollhouse that can also be mounted on a shelf to free up more room for playing.

In 2018, during a visit to the National Museum of Architecture and Design in Stockholm, Duchess Kate Middleton told Marcus Engman —IKEA’s Head of Design that she and Prince William chose IKEA to decorate their children’s bedrooms.

Engman was thrilled by the news saying, “I’m proud that we can suit everybody. That’s what we want IKEA to be – for the many people of the world, both royalty and ordinary people.”
