Special Moments That Showcase Kate Middleton’s Impressive Parenting Skills

Some people may not necessarily associate mothering with being a member of the British royal family. But Catherine, Princess of Wales — or Kate Middleton as many still know her — seems to have the job of caring for her three young kids fully under control. The following photos highlight Kate’s special bond with her children and show that when ti comes to being a loving, caring mother, she’s a real-life royal supermom!

1. Pre-birthday celebrations

With Prince George’s first birthday just days away, Kate and Prince William took him to London’s Natural History Museum. A fine choice! Yet for as happy she looks here, the royal mom was already aware of how tough parenting can be. As she said at a public event, “Personally, becoming a mother has been such a rewarding and wonderful experience. However, at times it has also been a huge challenge. Even for me, who has support at home that most mothers do not.”

2. Prince Louis’ mischievousness

We’re pretty sure that no one else would get away with doing this to the Princess of Wales in public! Yet Prince Louis is probably an exception, showing his cheeky side at the Platinum Jubilee Pageant in June 2022. It was a cute moment that proved Kate isn’t afraid to have fun with her kids away from the privacy of their home.

3. First day of school in 2022

While the royal couple were no doubt excited about their kids’ first day at school, the lessons wouldn’t end with the final bell. As quoted in People magazine, Kate said, “My parents taught me about the importance of kindness, respect, and honesty. I realize how central values like these have been to me throughout my life. That’s why William and I want to teach our children just how important these things are as they grow up.”

4. Kate and the kids having a laugh

You’d never know that there was a polo event going on here: all of Kate’s focus was on bringing a smile to George and Princess Charlotte’s faces. It appeared to work! A lot of moms can probably relate to this scenario, which further highlights the normality of her parenting style. Kate just looks like any other mother in this snapshot.
