The Cambridges are widely credited as being very hands-on parents to their three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis. Before lockdown, Kate was often seen taking the children to school and helping at school sports days, and since the pandemic they have helped with distance learning.

Along with the majority of parents in the UK, Kate Middleton and Prince William are in lockdown with their three children – and it can be a testing time.

Thankfully, the duo run a tight ship and according to The Sun, they have strong opinions about how kids should be disciplined.

'There’s no naughty step but there is a "chat sofa",' a source told the newspaper. The child will be taken away from the scene of the row or disruption and talked to calmly by either Kate or William. Things are explained and consequences are outlined – they never shout at the children.'

Kate is passionate about early childhood education and avoiding the word ‘naughty’ reflects the most current research about how kids learn. Family nanny Maria Borrallo, who has worked with the Cambridges for six years and even stayed on for quarantine is also a fan of the ‘firm, but fair’ approach.

According to the source, 'Kate and William, along with Maria, are strict with the children but have a magic ability to appear not to be. It is a military operation but you’d never guess it because they work ferociously hard on their children’s upbringing and making it seem relaxed and happy for them all.'
