Prince William and Catherine are known as attentive and empathetic parents who are raising their three children differently than the royal heirs have been treated over the years. According to the royal expert, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are bringing up their children using the "Middleton method" to make their childhood more "down-to-earth."
For a long time, William and Kate were believed to do their best to give Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis the most normal upbringing possible. They stayed out of the public eye most of the time, though all three children participated in the Queen's Platinum Jubilee celebrations and managed to draw the public attention by their lively facial expressions. Louis was a superstar at the anniversary, that might have worried his mother. Royal experts believe that the Cambridges are cautious about their children's public appearances so as not to expose them too much to public attention and to allow them to live the life of ordinary children.
According to royal author Duncan Larcombe, the embodiment of royal children's healthy upbringing is based on the way Kate was raised by her parents, Carol and Michael Middleton, along with her sister Pippa and brother James. Duncan says, "I think we've been seeing for some time that the model that William and Kate use in the family is the Middleton method. It's a close-knit family: brothers, sisters, all together. And it's a tight unit."
Prince George, who has recently turned nine, visited Wimbledon with his parents for the first time. The boy felt at ease, which made his mother be bombarded with reproaches.
However, experts believe that the Cambridge's liberal upbringing is rather an advantage than a disadvantage, because it gives the royal heirs a sort of normal childhood.
