Prince William inspiration: The one thing William desires for George – ‘like his mother’

1260

PRINCE WILLIAM is the father of three of the world’s most famous children – but a new book reveals how he has taken inspiration for raising them from his mother Princess Diana.

The two future kings have spent lockdown at Anmer Hall with the rest of the Cambridge’s, and Prince George is set to return to school in London in September. The father and son reportedly have a very close relationship, with William homeschooling his eldest son throughout the pandemic alongside Kate.

Now, the new biography Finding Freedom, which has caused an uproar in and out of royal circles, has shed some light on how the dad-of-three wants his children’s lives to pan out – and it’s very similar to how his mother Princess Diana raised her two boys.

The controversial new biography of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex paints the couple in a particularly favourable light, and has led to accusations the couple were directly involved in its making, which they have denied.

But the book also shines a light on the inner workings of the Cambridge family – and reveals how Prince William has been striving to give his three children as normal childhoods as possible before they go on to be working royals – and in Prince George’s case, the King.

The book claims: “When William and Kate took over the apartment at 1A, they wanted the kitchen to be at the heart of the home.

“It wasn’t just practical; it was also symbolic. Like his mother had wanted for him, William desired relatively normal childhoods for his kids, even if his eldest son was destined to be King.”

The book also says William is “involved in every aspect of raising his three children – including school drop-off and pickup, as well as homework.

“He and Kate, who had an equal partnership when it came to the house, were modern parents.”

Princess Diana was fiercely protective of her sons when they were young, and formed an intelligent bond with the press to ensure their privacy.

The biography of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry details – among many things – the relationship the two brothers had before and during when the Sussexes relationship with the rest of the Royal Family fell apart.

The Sussexes felt they had no choice but to quit the Royal Family in part because they felt stifled and patronized by courtiers who they believed had a vendetta against them.

The brothers have reportedly been getting back on track to mend their relationship, after a series of high profile statements made by the younger Prince

Harry confirmed in the 2019 documentary Harry & Meghan: An African Journey that he and William had a rift, telling journalist Tom Bradby: “We’re certainly on different paths at the moment, but I’ll always be there for him and, as I know, he will always be there for me.”

The contents is explosive to say the least – excerpts from the biography thus far have included claims that William and Harry’s relationship began to deteriorate after the Duke of Cambridge said his brother was “blindsided by lust” with Meghan, and told his brother to “get to know this girl.”

The book alleges that Prince William and Kate never visited Prince Harry and Meghan at their Cotswolds home, that Kate didn’t try to help fix the brothers’ relationship and that Kate didn’t attempt any kind of meaningful friendship with Meghan.

The Cambridge’s are reportedly not happy with the new book.

A source has also reported to US weekly that William even believes the couple to be behind the book, saying: “William thinks the book is their calculated way of controlling the narrative and that they took advantage of their entertainment contacts so they’d be painted in a favorable light”.

Omid Scobie, one of the authors, has defended Finding Freedom and the 100 sources who contributed to it, telling The Times, “The book doesn’t claim to have any interviews with Harry and Meghan. And nor do we.

“I think that you can tell from the reporting, my time around the couple is enough for me to know my subjects.”

A spokesperson for Harry and Meghan released a statement ahead of the book’s publication, saying: “The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were not interviewed and did not contribute to Finding Freedom.

“This book is based on the authors’ own experiences as members of the royal press corps and their own independent reporting.”
