Prince William & Kate Middleton Are Raising Their Kids 'The Middleton Way'
Kate Middleton and Prince William want to modernize the monarchy, and it seems like they also have a motto when it comes to raising their three kids, Prince George, 9, Princess Charlotte, 7, and Prince Louis, 4.
"I think what we've seen for some time now is that the model William and Kate are essentially using as a family is the Middleton way," expert Duncan Larcombe said on True Royalty TV's The Royal Beat. "It’s that strong family; brothers, sisters, everyone. And it is a tight unit."

As of late, William, 40, and Kate, 40, have been taking their kids to various events since they're older.
"William has curated George's appearances in a completely different way from the way his mother and father curated his," Richard Kay noted. "William and Harry, particularly William, were thrust from a very young age center stage. William has taken a different view, he wants to protect [his children] for as long as possible, give them some semblance of a normal childhood."
However, it seems like the brunette beauty doesn't want her tots to be in front of the camera too much.
"I think Kate has to wrap some semblance of normality around [their children], because she knows what [royal life] can do," expert Ingrid Seward noted. "She’s seen it; she's been around long enough ... but they’re not normal children, and I think it's extremely hard to keep their little feet on the ground ... I think this is a danger Kate's very aware of. Louis at the Jubilee became a superstar, but that would have probably worried her a bit."
When it comes to parenting, it seems like William has taken a page out of his mother's book.
"One of the things with William I have noticed is that, like Diana, he and his family love to cook, they love to be together and doing things together," former chef Darren McGrady said in an interview with Coffee Friend. "They also, like the princess, allow their children to be children. You see them eating cookies, you see them even making cookies."
