It may come as no surprise that Britain's Princess Charlotte has become "very popular," and her mother, Kate, Princess of Wales, can take some of the credit.

"They're lovely kids. Charlotte is so kind and friendly, and the other children adore her. She's kind to the kids in younger years, and she's very popular," an anonymous source revealed.

"George seems like a nice boy, too, and little Louis just has so much energy," they added. "If William and Kate ever can't make a sports match, their nanny goes along and spends most of the time running around the edge of the pitch after Louis. He's a typical little energetic five-year-old."

The source continued: "The day after Kate's carol service [at Westminster Abbey], it was the school Christmas fair and, they were all there, as they were the previous year. I saw them queuing up for tombola tickets like everyone else. They really act like a normal mom and dad."

The Prince and Princess of Wales have both made it a point to put their three children above everything else — including the Crown. This drastically differs from past royal generations, who lived by the mantra of "duty first." However, the next monarch and consort ensure that this extra attention does not lead to spoiling their children.

"It is about letting them express those emotions and sitting down to discuss them with the child, rather than ignoring the turmoil that growing up so often involves," veteran royal commentator Jennie Bond told an outlet in the spring of 2023. "It is fantastic, and I believe Catherine will very much be the leader in this, and William will be the follower, he will have been learning from Catherine how to be a different kind of parent."

William benefitted greatly from the extra attention his mother, Diana, Princess of Wales, showed him as a kid. But even the late princess and King Charles III put their duties before their parenting. Catherine is determined to avoid this past hallmark of royal life as George, Charlotte and Louis mature.

"The other important word is preventative, which Kate has used a lot, and she believes in so strongly," Bond added while highlighting how the future queen's intention is to "prevent so much mental anguish, turmoil or addictive habits or various troubles that might come along in adulthood."

"But perhaps most importantly, giving her children all of the time that she can," Bond concluded. "We're all pressed, we're all rushing, and she has a huge job, but she gives them as much time as she can to sit down with them, discuss their problems, and play with them and just be with them."
