Prince William may one day be the king, but he’s still looking to give his children as normal a life as possible. William, who is currently second in line for the throne, is interested in giving his children the chance to lead normal childhoods with other children, British media commentator Neil Sean told Fox News.
“Both Kate and William… like the idea of having them mix with all the other children of their age to make friends and enjoy a normal childhood without the confines of royal life,” Sean said.
Apparently, William is keen on this idea in part because of his mother.
“William, in particular, enjoys doing this as he remembers with such great affection how his mother, the wonderful Princess Diana, arranged all kinds of things for both him and [his brother Prince] Harry to do, like fast-food restaurants, shows, seaside holidays and so forth,” Sean said. “Kate always had this [growing up] and it’s something that she wanted to continue with her own children, giving them life skills and, of course, a fun and loving childhood.”
One palace insider told Sean that Kate, who has three children, gave each of them a chance to see one of their favorite film characters on stage with other children.
“It all started when the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge attended the Royal Variety Performance in London last November,” Sean said. “Both Prince George and Princess Charlotte wanted to also attend but were told by mum Kate that ’it’s not happening on a school night.’ The show is an annual event of stars that perform for free all in the name of charity.”
“The real reason they both wanted to attend was that the show had a segment from the new hit West End smash musical of ‘Mary Poppins’ which is produced by Sir Cameron Mackintosh of ‘Phantom of the Opera’ and ‘Cats’ fame,” he continued. “George and Charlotte love the  film, so Kate arranged for the two to join her at the performance of the show. They were so enthralled… Charlotte now won’t leave the house without telling anyone who will listen that she is planning to fly ‘just like Mary.’”
Of course, even as William and Kate strive to give their children normal lives, they must also be conscious of the fact that their children get privileges most children don’t have. As an example, after Charlotte and George attended the show, they got a chance to meet the cast.
When your parents are the future king and queen, that’s the kind of special treatment you get. With those sorts of privileges, it’s hard to imagine any of William and Kate’s children living a totally normal life.
