Kate Middleton and Prince William reportedly have a strict set of ‘family rules’, including bans on shouting and watching TV before dinner.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are said to insist on their children Charlotte, Louis and George never going to bed angry.
Instead they are encouraged to share what is upsetting them and talk about their feelings so the family can move forward.
Shouting is also ‘absolutely off limits’ for Kate, William and their three children, it is claimed.
The parents apparently decided to apply the rule to themselves to present a ‘united front’ to the young royals.
A royal source told the The Sun : “The children are encouraged to talk about their feelings.
“They express their concerns over school subjects, a swimming class, a tricky ballet manoeuvre, a missed tennis rally, or seeing children starving on a TV ad. But a talk ensues and a solution found.
“There is no question of one parent saying ‘no’ and the other saying ‘yes’ later on as Kate and William want to present a unified parental front to their children.”
The source added that ’emotional coaching’ is key to the royal couple’s parenting style.
They are said to be keen for their children to know how fortunate they are and to be aware of the importance of mental and physical house.
The Cambridges’ unique parenting style has also seen them ditch the traditional ‘naughty step’ and instead use a ‘chat sofa’.
When the youngsters start shouting they are sent to the couch, where William or Kate speak to them calmly.
A source previously told the Sun that the couple explain to the children how their behaviour has consequences.
William, a future king, has kept himself busy during the crisis with royal video calls and stepping out for the re-starting of physical royal engagements – albeit with social distancing as a key element.
The duke is the most senior royal in line to the throne who is not considered most at risk of coronavirus because of his age.
The monarch is in the high-risk category, and the Prince of Wales is 71, although Charles has already caught and recovered from the Covid-19 illness.
