Duchess Kate’s simple lesson for kids of all ages will warm your heart
As a mother-of-three, Duchess Kate has firsthand experience raising her children with Prince William. Over the past five years, since her eldest child Prince George was born, she has learned many parenting lessons which she now feels should be passed on to other growing families.
At a recent event, Duchess Kate openly shared her parenting advice at Basildon Sporting Village in the UK, as one admirer named Janet Emery hugged the royal.
Kate welcomed the embrace, thanking the woman, and shared with Janet, “Thank you very much. Hugs are very important. I keep saying that to my children.”
Janet is part of an organisation, Sport for Confidence, which provides sporting events and activities for people with learning disabilities and mental health problems, as well as giving them a supportive space.

Prince William has previously given insight into how he and his wife raise Prince George, 5, Princess Charlotte, 3, and Prince Louis, 6 months. He revealed that besides their royal status, they do all they can to give their children a normal life.
“As far as we’re concerned, within our family unit we are a normal family. I love my children the same way any father does, and I hope George loves me the same way any son does to his father, so we are very normal in that sense,” William explained to BBC News in 2016.
Surprisingly, along with many parents across the world, William and Kate are against giving their children electronics, such as iPads, computers and gaming consoles.
“As two people who grew up without gadgets for entertainment themselves, William and Kate are firm believers in toys, outdoor play and encouraging an active imagination,” shared a royal insider with Us Weekly.
