How Kate and Wills keep their kids so well-behaved

Sarah Carty

Prince George and Princess Charlotte may be two of the most photographed children in the world, but they’re also particularly well-behaved as well.

The tots, who are four-years-old and two-year-old, have had the odd tantrum while out in the public eye before, however they behave perfectly most of the time.

And now it’s been revealed that their parents, Kate Middleton and Prince William, actually have a trick to keep their kids in line.

If you ever look at photos of the whole family together, you’ll notice that most of the time, Kate holds Charlotte’s hand and William takes care of George.

“The two future kings walking together - while Kate takes charge of hers and William’s young daughter - is natural, especially in accordance with the conventions of the stringent rules which are traditional and expected within the royal family,” royal expert Elizabeth Kuhnke told OK! magazine.

“An adult is still required to take charge. And with two young children, living in the public eye, more than one adult is needed.

"One can find photos of William holding Charlotte and Kate holding George when the children were babies, and although both children are now older, they’re not old enough to be let loose on their own." 

However, the royal kids have their moments just like every other child, with Prince George recently throwing a tantrum at his aunt, Pippa Middleotn’s wedding.

The young Prince could be seen crying outside the chapel in Berkshire before his mother gave him a stern look and pointed her finger, letting him know she wasn’t having any of it.

Likewise, Princess Charlotte had a miniature meltdown while the royals were on a tour of Canada recently.
