Kate Middleton’s two children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, whose father Prince William is the Queen’s grandson, have to follow certain royal rules at mealtimes which means they sometimes do not finish meals. Duchess of Cambridge is pregnant with her third child, due in late April.

Kate Middleton, 36, and Prince William, 35, are said to have special parenting rules for their two children, Prince George, 4, and Princess Charlotte, 2, which are linked to royal protocol.

Prince George and Princess Charlotte are encouraged to follow the same royal dining rules as the rest of the royal family, according to OK.co.uk.

This means not beginning their meals until Her Majesty The Queen has started eating herself.

It also means members of the family must stop eating when the Queen stops eating, and this rule applies even if the monarch still has food left on her plate.

While the couple have the help of a nanny for the children, Maria Teresa Turrion Borallo, it is believed they are also very active parents.

Kate Middleton’s parenting rules

This is not the only parenting rule the children are expected to follow. According to US Weekly, they are forbidden from using a popular item in the family home.

That item is an iPad, which children often use to play virtual games on for amusement or for education – however, it seems the royal couple are not fans of this practice.

This is because Kate and Prince William prefer the two children to use their “imaginations” to amuse themselves, rather than a screen, a source told US Weekly.

“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.”

Another rule the children are said to follow at home is not opening all of their Christmas presents that they are sent.

The children are of course allowed to open some of their presents during the royal festive celebrations at Sandringham.

However, it is believed the children are sent thousands of presents from around the globe from royal fans and well wishers.

Many of these presents are then donated to charity for those less fortunate, a spokesperson from Kensington Palace has previously confirmed.

When is Kate’s third child due?

It is believed Kate Middleton’s due date for her third child– whose gender is unknown – in late April this year.

The Duchess’ bump has been clearly visible during her last few public appearances, indicating the baby’s birth is fast approaching.

However, there is a possibility if her baby is a little later than expected then the due date may coincide with Princess Charlotte’s birthday on May 2.

It’s expected Kate will pack up her royal duties around one month before her due date, judging by what she did with Prince George and Princess Charlotte.
