Kate Middleton uses strict parenting rule to discipline George, Charlotte and Louis
Princess Charlotte and her two prince brothers George and Louis are to watch their noise levels when at home with parents Kate Middleton and Prince William.
This insight comes from a 2020 piece published in The Sun, when a royal insider reported that although the three kids are "encouraged to talk about their feelings", mum and dad are ready to press the pause button should voices be raised.
"Shouting is absolutely 'off limits' for the children and any hint of shouting at each other is dealt with by removal," the source claimed, before revealing that the future Queen and King of the United Kingdom employ the 'chat sofa' technique – a nicer twist on the 'naughty step' where their youngsters get help in understanding what unfolded.
Their household's no-shouting rule applies to Kate, 41, and William, 40, too, especially when tackling one of George, Louis or Charlotte's tantrums.
"They are taken away from the scene of the row or disruption and talked to calmly by either Kate or William. Things are explained, and consequences outlined, and they never shout at them."
A second source went on to explain that the fivesome's communication standard allows the parents to be on an even keel when it comes to the children.
"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," they said.
"They express their concerns over school subjects, a swimming class, a tricky ballet [manoeuvre], a missed tennis rally… But a talk ensues and a solution found."
In last September's book, Courtiers: The Hidden Power Behind the Crown by Valentine Low, it was unveiled that William has provided royal staff with strict orders to dress casually when around the young trio, as he doesn't want home life to become too formal for them.
He's even banned suits in the family home in order to keep things casual, which started off as 'casual Fridays' before eventually spinning into an everyday norm.
The Courtiers author also delved into what it's really like behind closed doors in the royal residences.
"The kids run around the office, and William does not want it to be stuffy," he wrote, while an insider for the book shared how William stressed the importance of this as "this is where my family lives".
Another rule in place for the kids is to never go to bed in an angry state of mind.
