"Because of who they are, William and Kate have had to be highly organized parents," a source told the outlet "But as parents, Wills and Kate have developed this brilliant knack of letting as much as they can seem spontaneous and that's how the children see it." 

The insider added that Kate's upbringing plays a big part in her parenting style, saying, "She comes from a supportive family so she's very keen on family networks and networks of friends and organizations. As parents they are also very good at rolling up their sleeves and helping out with school events ... They try to be just like normal parents with normal parenting challenges."

William and Kate are focused on their children's future

According to People, William and Kate are very aware that their three children will have very different roles within the royal family. Royal expert Robert Lacey reveals that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are "very conscious" of the destinies awaiting their kids. The idea of the "heir" and the "spare" has seemed to plague the royals, with many second and third-born children finding it difficult to navigate their path in the monarchy.

The plan seems to be to help George, Charlotte, and Louis find their own niches. "William is working with Kate to help all their children develop what they find personally fulfilling," Lacey stated. "As royal parents, both Kate and William have focused on ... working to ensure that all three of their children enjoy the peaceful childhood that eluded William and Harry."
