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.
On July 12, 2017, the Duchess of Cambridge, née Kate Middleton, Prince William and Prince Harry posted a job ad on professional social network LinkedIn to recruit a new senior communications officer for their Royal Foundation.
Responsibilities for the position include managing the charitable activities of the princes and the Duchess and also the daily transmission of information to the public via traditional, digital and social media.
“This role will work both reactively and proactively to manage the daily news flow to the media, ensuring items are accurately and positively reported and received by audiences via traditional, digital, and social media,” the job page on LinkedIn reads.
“The successful candidate will play a key role in the development and implementation of the communications strategy for The Royal Foundation and producing and delivering creative communications campaigns. They will take the lead on The Royal Foundation communications plans and the delivery of engagements as necessary and will work closely with both TRH’s Communications Secretary and the CEO of the Foundation.”
The job offer has already collected more than 6,000 views, with more than 1,000 people sending their applications.
A new royal pregnancy is the subject of an alleged recent rumor.
A report by Life & Style claims that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge can’t come to an agreement on whether they should have another baby.
The publication alleges that the royals have been “arguing over expanding their brood” for some time and cite a “royal insider” that says, “William’s happy with the family as it stands, while Kate wants another baby.”
The “source” also claims that since the Duchess of Cambridge, née Kate Middleton, comes from a family of three children she “thinks it’s the perfect number.”
For his part, William is happy with having a boy and a girl. “He feels they have enough on their plate already,” the “insider” adds.
However, Gossip Cop denies the report, writing that, “Such decisions are made privately, and neither of them or their few trusted confidantes are sharing that kind of personal information with the untrustworthy tabloid.”
In addition, the magazine questions the validity of the report given that the same publication wrote about Kate being pregnant with twins just one month ago.
The royals were invited on Thursday evening to a reception at the Clärchens Ballhaus in Berlin, an opportunity for them to meet GoT star Tom Wlaschiha.
And since they are avid fans of the series, they tried to get scoops on their favorite show from the actor.
“They said they really liked Game of Thrones and have watched every series,” Wlaschiha, 44, said. “They wanted spoilers, but I said I couldn’t tell them.”
“I’m surprised they have time to watch such a long-running series,” he added.
During an interview with BBC Radio 1 in April the couple talked about their very normal lifestyle and how they like to watch series. Prince William revealed that he is very fond of Homeland and Game of Thrones.
The seventh season of the HBO fantasy drama television series premiered on July 16, 2017.
Now parents of two children, the two royals have been the target of pregnancy rumors since their marriage in April 2011 and until today.
Some of the latest allegations even claimed that the pair is expecting twins or that Kate is pregnant with another girl.
The Duke and the Duchess of Cambridge, née Kate Middleton, are now on official visits to Poland and Germany. The couple is accompanied by their two children, Prince George, who turns 4 today, and Princess Charlotte, 2.
As the couple completed their visit at The Heart—an incubator for digital and tech start-ups in Warsaw, Poland, Catherine was gifted cuddly toys designed for newborns.
Upon receiving the gifts, she turned to William and made a funny remark that did not go unnoticed, saying, “We will just have to have more babies!”
With Prince Philip retiring in the fall and the numerous obligations linked to their rank, there seems to be little room left for the arrival of a third child at the moment.
“They have decided that their children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, will travel with them and we expect the children to be seen in at least a couple of occasions over the course of the week,” a statement from the palace read.
“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.”
The children will be staying with their nanny Maria Turrion Borrallo as the royals honor their engagements.
The tour will include visits to Warsaw on July 17 where they will meet with Polish Prime Minister Beata Szydlo, and also a visit to the site of the Auschwitz concentration camp.
In Germany they will be visiting Berlin, Heidelberg and Hamburg before returning to London on July 21.
America’s Globe magazine wrote that the two split after they accused each other of cheating. “The bust-up was really the work of Prince Charles’ wife Camilla,” a source said. “Her scheming tore them apart.”
“Kate is troubled by the disrespectful behavior William has shown her over the last seven years,” blabbed one insider. “Kate and Wills had just returned from a romantic vacation in the Caribbean four years ago, and a picture of Wills kissing [British pop star] Natasha Hamilton was published in nearly every paper in Britain.
“All of Kate’s friends and family saw it. It was devastating for her! “He didn’t even try to be discreet. That’s what upset Kate most – she thought William was being blatantly disrespectful to her, and she’s still haunted by that photo today.
“And to make matters worse, Kate is now being warned by royal courtiers that she must be prepared for William to follow in his philandering father’s footsteps — and take a mistress. ‘It won’t be IF he does, my dear,’ Kate was told by one of Queen Elizabeth’s advisers. ‘It will be WHEN he does — and then you must simply turn a blind eye.’
“Kate’s been briefed on all matters of royal protocol – how she’s expected to behave in public, what to wear, even when to smile and when to look serious. “But when she was informed that her future husband would undoubtedly cheat on her, she felt physically ill. Now she… doesn’t want to go ahead with the wedding!”
British press revealed that the ceremony would be at the St. George Chapel of the Windsor castle and after the ceremony a party would be held at the Buckingham palace.
Prince William and Kate Middleton met while they were students at the St. Andrews University in Scotland and have a relationship of almost 10 years but marked with several break ups and reconciliations.
Queen Elizabeth is delighted by the announcement that she will be great-grandmother in December. “Peter and Autumn Phillips are pleased to confirm that they will have a baby in December”, reads the official statement.
“Queen and Duke of Edinburgh, as well as Autumn’s family are aware of the news and are very happy”, according dailymail.co.uk. Phillips lives with his wife in Hong Kong where he workes for Royal Bank of Scotland. Peter is the son of Princess Anne.
Mr and Mrs Phillips gave rise to much controversy when they married two years ago for having signed a contract – for £ 500,000 – with Hello magazine for the photos of their ceremony.
The 59-page magazine included pictures of the queen, Prince Philip and Prince Charles.
The deal with Hello magazine was seen as a big mistake by Buckingham Palace. Also pictures of Kate Middleton – girlfriend of Prince William – and Chelsy Davy – Prince Harry girlfriend – were also published and have sparked controversy.
