As heirs to the British Monarchy, most people would think that William, Kate, George and Charlotte get whatever their hearts desire. After all, they have wealth, travel endlessly and have a wardrobe that we are all envious of.
The youngest members of the Royal family, George and Charlotte, don't get everything they could possible ever want.
In spite of being in the Royal spotlight, the Duke and and Duchess of Cambridge try to give their children George and Charlotte as normal of an upbringing as possible.
As can be expected Prince George, who just turned 4, is said to "love anything on wheels" and Princess Charlotte, who's 2 is a fan of Disney princesses. “I don’t think it’s quite dawned on her that she’s a princess herself,” a family friend told US Weekly.
Which means, they are denied something that every kid wants to get their hands on.
It's said they try to ensure their kids aren't spoiled, either. So iPads have reportedly been banned from their home.
“They’re very much seen as Mummy and Daddy’s toys, not for children . . . As two people who grew up without gadgets for entertainment themselves, William and Kate are firm believers in toys, outdoor play, and encouraging an active imagination. They’re very much a normal family,” according to a source.
George is apparently starting to catch on to the fact that his life is not quite the same as it is for every other 4-year-old.
The US Weekly source notes that George is “at an age where he’s starting to realize that the world he lives in is different to his friends.”
When George goes biking with William he is like every other 4-year-old - he has a lot to ask him. “He’s full of questions and curiosity about everything around him . . . He’s growing up to be a very confident young boy,” the source reported.
Meanwhile Charlotte is attached to her mother, according to Us Weekly's source, “Wherever Kate goes, so does Charlotte.”
So when Kate or the housekeeper are preparing meals in the kitchen, Charlotte can be found right next to them with “her own toy set by her side to imitate.”
What do you think about the Dutch and Duchess making this decision about electronics for their kids?
