Prince William has a lot more going on than just being second in line to the British throne. The Duke of Cambridge is also the proud dad of his three children — Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis — whom he shares with his wife, Duchess Kate (née Middleton).
William and Kate started their family a little over two years after they tied the knot in April 2011, when eldest son George arrived in July 2013. The royal couple expanded their brood with the birth of daughter Charlotte in May 2015, followed by their youngest son, Louis, in April 2018.
The duke and duchess may be royalty, but when it comes to raising their kids, William and Kate couldn’t be more normal. In fact, a source close to the longtime lovebirds revealed the two are raising George, Charlotte and Louis “to be grounded.”
“They receive gifts on their birthday and at Christmas. And [Kate’s mom] Carole [Middleton], spoils her grandchildren rotten, but when you meet them they’re just regular kids,” the source explained to Closer Weekly of the trio. “They’re kind, loving, funny and far from entitled.”
Aside from teaching their kids the importance of being grateful, William and Kate are also them “to be well-mannered and respectful,” another source told Closer. “The children always have to say ‘please’ and ‘thank you.’”
“George and Charlotte make their own beds in the morning,” the insider added, noting the twosome doesn’t ask their “housekeeper” to help their kids out with their chores. “Kate can’t believe how quickly her children are growing up. Sometimes she’ll joke that she wants them to stay little forever, but she also loves seeing them reach new milestones.”
William and Kate might have their hands full as parents and future heirs to the throne, but they wouldn’t be against welcoming another baby into their family. “They adore being parents,” a royal insider shared with Closer in June 2019. “They’d love to have two girls and two boys!”
“They’re at their happiest when they are surrounded by their family,” the source continued. “Will and Kate’s kids are their world.”
