“Neither like the idea of putting an iPad on in front of the kids,” the source tells the website. “As two people who grew up without gizmos for entertainment, they’re firm followers in toys, outside play and motivating an active creativity.”
So, on the weekends, the royal kiddos go to the petting zoo or an adventure play ground. They also spend a lot of time with maternal grandparents Carole and Michael Middleton. “Kate’s moms and dads often visit them or remain for the complete weekend,” the source notes. “William enjoys a close relationship with both.”
A Middleton household insider formerly told Usthat the kids have the exact same interests as any other 4- and 2-year-olds. George spends hours riding bikes, and Charlotte plays Disney princesses (which is of course, a bit ironic, as she is one herself!).
Keeping screen time out of the playroom appears to be part of giving the kids a typical, active childhood out in the genuine world– a desire that earlier this year. “I wish to raise my children in a delighted, stable, safe and secure world which is so important to both of us as moms and dads,” he described. “I want George to grow up in a real, living environment, I don’t desire him growing up behind palace walls, he needs to be out there. The media make it harder, however I will defend them to have a typical life.”
Cheers to that! Of course, every home is different, and every parent needs to make rules around playtime or entertainment that matches their family’s requirements. What works for the royals may extremely well work for some– but not for others!
