Kate Middleton and Prince William try to keep Prince George and Princess Charlotte away from technology

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, née Kate Middleton, want to keep their two children’s lives as normal as possible.

The latest issue of Us Weekly reveals that the royal couple has decided to raise their children, Prince George, 4, and Princess Charlotte, 2, in a technology-free environment.

“While they feel it’s important to make them aware of their backgrounds, it’s also vital for both George and Charlotte to have as much normalcy in their lives as possible,” an insider tells the publication.

The two have forbidden their children from using electronic gadgets such as tablets and cell phones.



“They’re very much seen as Mummy and Daddy’s toys, not for children,” the source says. “As two people who grew up without gadgets for entertainment themselves, William and Kate are firm believers in toys, outdoor play and encouraging an active imagination.”

“They’re very much a normal family,” a palace insider adds.

According to the article, George is passionate about anything that has wheels, and Charlotte loves the universe of the princesses, an irony that she still can’t perceive.

In addition, the 4-year-old boy is becoming aware that his world is different from that of other children and is curious about everything around him. His sister is very attached to her mother and is preparing to go to school in 2018.

“They look forward to a busy and impactful tour and are grateful that they will have the opportunity to meet the Polish and German people — such important friends of the United Kingdom — as a family.”
