Kate Middleton Is Reportedly a "Very Strict" Mom When it Comes to Screentime
You probably won't be catching the Cambridge kids watching hours of Paw Patrol or playing Animal Crossing, even as the coronavirus pandemic renders the royals housebound.
Kate Middleton is reportedly "very strict" when it comes to screentime for her kids, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis. Katie Nicholl, a Vanity Fair royal reporter who has done extensive reporting on the Cambridges, told OK Magazine that the family is likely spending quarantine on "arts and crafts, painting and doing things that aren’t screen-orientated."
"Kate is usually very strict on screen time and keeps it to a minimum," she said. "They’ve got climbing frames, swings and a pond, and each of the children are in charge of their own little patch of the kitchen garden."
Kate, Prince William, and their children, are spending time at their Norfolk home as Prince George and Princess Charlotte's school has shut down along with other schools across the U.K.
Prince Louis, who Nicholl said is "happiest when exploring the grounds" of the family’s Norfolk home Anmer Hall, will be celebrating his second birthday on April 23, and according to Nicholl, the family plans to make it as special as possible despite restrictions, since Kate won't let "any birthday pass without a celebration."
On Thursday, Prince William remotely opened a new hospital in Birmingham in hopes of aiding coronavirus relief efforts.
"I want to congratulate and thank all of you for all your hard work in putting this together," he told staff during the video call. "I think it’s a herculean effort, it really is, and you should be rightly very proud of what you’ve achieved. Thank you for everything you’ve done, it really means a lot to everybody."
