We had a feeling this was coming.
Princess Diana wanted her boys to be as normal as they possibly could, given their royal circumstances, and it seems that Kate Middleton will do the same with Prince George.
A friend of the couple had the following to say on the royal subject:
"It'll be a carbon copy of how William and Harry were brought up, because of their mother. However she's painted, her greatest legacy is her sons. The way they've been brought up and the way she taught them to think for themselves and to lead a normal life."
They are both all of those things, because what’s more normal than getting drunk and naked in Vegas, right Prince Harry?! LOLz!
But srsly, Prince George is going to have a loving dad and a mom who has always been good with kids.
The chief executive of East Anglia Children’s Hospices, which Kate has worked with, said:
"There's a bit of Diana influence – she brought up William and Harry quite differently to the way that Prince Charles was brought up. And I think there's a natural development as the Royal Family adapts and changes to a different way. I don't think Kate will change. Having seen her interact with children … and [overhearing] the conversations that she's had, she’s just so natural. She has a rapport with children."
Even though this is such a happy time, there’s still a feeling of sadness that Princess Di couldn’t be here to enjoy it with them. Rosa Monckton, a friend of the family, said:
"[Diana would] have been keen that everything went well with the birth and the first years. And when the baby walks and talks she'd have a good old laugh with him."
We’re sure they’ll still share lots of laughs, knowing that William’s mum is looking out for them and sharing a chuckle with them too.
