Kate Middleton and Prince William’s parenting rules include no shouting ever, no TV before tea & never going to bed mad


THEY might be part of the most famous family in the world – but when it comes to their parenting style, Prince William and Kate Middleton are just like any normal mum and dad.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have a hands-on approach to parenting – which includes a no-shouting policy, never going to bed mad, and banning all TV before tea-time.

The Cambridge family are in lockdown at their Norfolk home Amner Hall

Speaking to Fabulous Digital, a royal source revealed that “shouting is absolutely ‘off limits’” for the Cambridge children at all times.

Instead, the kids are encouraged to discuss what it is that’s bothering them in a more constructive manner.

The source said: “The children are encouraged to talk about their feelings.

“They express their concerns over school subjects, a swimming class, a tricky ballet manoeuvre, a missed tennis  rally, or seeing children starving on a TV ad. But a talk ensues and a solution found.”

What’s more, William and Kate have also adopted the family’s no-shouting rule themselves in order to present a “united front” to their children.

“There is no question of one parent saying ‘no’ and the other saying ‘yes’ later on as Kate and William want to present a unified parental front to their children,” our source added.

Last week, we revealed that there is no naughty step in the Cambridge household – instead, they have a “chat sofa” where Prince George, Princess Charlotte and two-year-old Prince Louis are sent if they start shouting.

William and Kate also ensure that the kids never got to bed angry and encourage their brood to always talk about their feelings.

It’ll come as no surprise that their children’s mental health is incredibly important to the couple – considering their recent work on the NHS’ Every Mind Matters and Heads Together campaigns.

“Emotional coaching is a Cambridge parental building block,” the source said. “Awareness of others less fortunate than themselves, physical and mental health and going to sleep in a calm happy house is so utterly important to them all.”

Since they went into lockdown at their Norfolk home Amner Hall, the family have settled into a new routine – which involves NO television until after the children have had their tea.

“The television is not on throughout the day and programmes have to be met with parental approval,” our source said.

When they are allowed to watch TV, Prince George and Princess Charlotte are said to be fans of CBBC’s What, Where, When, Why, Numberblocks and Horrible Histories – which “is a bit advanced but they love it.”

Shouting in the Cambridge is ‘absolutely off-limits’

The source added: “There is the staple of Peppa Pig, Thomas the Tank Engine and cartoons on Disney Channel.”

When the Duchess designed her garden for the Chelsea Flower Show last year, she spoke about how important it is for her children to take an interest in nature and spend times outdoors.

The mum-of-three is said to encourage her kids to watch Andy’s Adventures on Cbeebies which is full of child-friendly animal and nature facts facts.

“All the children seem to like games and a quiz,” the insider said. “They get fired up [trying to find things from the show] in the garden.”
