Why William and Kate have very a different way of parenting Louis

Prince William and Princess Kate always prioritise their three children above all their other responsibilities, but even royal parents may treat kids of different ages in slightly different ways.

For royal expert Jennie Bond, this will be especially true during Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis' half-term from Lambrook School, which is currently happening — with typically mischievous Louis potentially "getting away with murder" these days.

"William and Kate have three children with very different demands. We know poor George has been feeling rather under the cosh lately because school life is about being tested," Jennie explained to OK! (via MSN).

"So this half-term holiday may not be quite like his previous holidays and could involve a certain amount of revision. That will be doubly hard with his sister and little brother having all the fun, but I’m sure William and Kate will find a healthy balance that will allow George to join in most of the time."

Jennie went on to explain how the three children — who are 10, 8, and 5 respectively — may experience their half-term break very differently from one another.

"George will be their priority right now because of his exams and his future schooling to consider," the expert continued.

"Charlotte is relatively carefree, but as the only girl, she’ll no doubt command special attention. Louis is the little kid on the block, probably getting away with murder while their parents are too busy with the others to chastise him!"

Louis has had a legion of royal fans of his very own ever since his unforgettable appearance at the late Queen's Jubilee in 2022, when he hilariously pulled funny face after funny face.

Since then, royal watchers have loved spotting Louis out and about at an official royal engagement, knowing that the little boy is always bound to bring the entertainment factor wherever he goes.
