Kate Middleton and Prince William have made it clear that they are set on providing their children with as “normal” an upbringing as possible. The royals made waves with the news that they would be sending Prince George to a relatively inexpensive school. Since the little Prince has begun attending the establishment over the past month, there has been news that Kate and Will are playing host to various play dates for George to have with his little schoolmates.
The International Business Times shares on the subject of normalcy that the Duke and Duchess intend to maintain for their children.
“Kate Middleton and Prince William are working towards giving Prince George a normal childhood. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are reportedly planning to host frequent play dates for their son.”
A source revealed the young royals’ plans and intentions for George as he adjusts to life attending the Montessori school that they have selected for him.
“Kate and William will be getting involved in Prince George’s nursery life. They won’t ever want him to feel isolated or different from the other children, so that means plenty of play dates with his classmates.”
William and Kate are clearly enjoying their role as parents to their two little ones and have fully immersed themselves in the roles, remaining hands-on and present in all decisions regarding George and Charlotte. They are seeking a healthy balance for their family that integrates their own values with the royal traditions.
The insider also notes how Will and Kate are very sociable and enjoy meeting children and parents connected to George’s new school.
“Kate and William are very sociable and want to get involved in all aspects of his nursery life, which includes meeting his new friends. There would be security checks on parents coming into their home and personal ‘family areas’ of the estate would be out of bounds, but there are plenty of communal areas where George’s friends can visit.”
Prince George, 2, attends Westacre Montessori School in Norfolk. It is a nursery that is quite close to Will and Kate at Anmer Hall on the Sandringham Estate.
The source shares what the focus of the educational facility is that George attends and why it is that the Duke and Duchess selected it for their little one.
“Montessori focuses on social development and independence as well as education. Children are encouraged to choose whatever activity suits them, and then the teacher is there to be a guide. As George gets older there will be constraints in his life, so this is a great start where he will get independence and freedom. He needs to have as much freedom as possible for as long as possible. This method of education gives a child a strong sense of what they like and dislike, which should give him the confidence he’ll need as our future monarch.”
Irish independent shares as to the couple’s intentions to host play dates and does make note that because the family is royalty, the play dates will be made safe with the necessary security to ensure that they are kept from any unfortunate circumstances in inviting individuals to their private resident.
It is certainly refreshing to witness the young royals staying involved in the day-to-day life of their son and ensuring to bring their little ones up cautiously yet with the normalcy they believe that will bring their children the balance that makes well-adjusted young royals.
