Kate Middleton & Prince William To Mirror Princess Diana’s Parenting

The legacy of Princess Diana will continue to live on! The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are preparing to welcome their bundle of joy, and they want to be the best parents they can be — with the help of the Will’s late mother.

Kate Middleton, 31, has done nothing but impress the public and make the royal family happy since she and Prince William, 31, married in 2011, and their parenting style will seemingly do just the same. They have not only been predicted to be fabulous parents once their baby is born, but they will be especially great because they’ll be taking after the one and only Princess Diana!

Prince William & Kate Middleton To Learn Parenting From Princess Diana

Kate and William are expected to try and give their child a fairly normal upbringing, as Diana did with William. Diana’s low-key parenting method had great impact on William and Prince Harry, according to Princess Margaret‘s official biographer Christopher Warwick, Kate and William would love to be able to do the same.

“William and Harry were very, very fortunate with Diana as a mother because her ideas were so different to the previous generation,” Christopher said, according to Arabia MSN News. “The importance of this to her two sons have been enormous. William will want this for his children.”

Like Diana, Kate didn’t grow up as royalty, so Christopher said she would love to make her child’s life similar to hers.

“[Kate's] childhood was pretty ordinary,” he said. “She won’t want her baby to be the subject of rules and protocol before they need to be.”

Kate Middleton Goes Against Royal Tradition Just Like Princess Diana

Diana was a very hands-on mother with William and Harry — the U.K.’s Express reported that she even walked the boys to school, which was unusual for royal parenting.

Another way Kate plans on emulating the late princess is through breastfeeding! While royals traditionally chose not to breastfeed their children, Princess Diana was reportedly the first royal to breastfeed her first son William. If Kate does decide to breastfeed her newborn, which author Daisy Goodwin suggests she will do during an interview on 20/20: Bringing Up Baby: Royal Edition, she will be following in Princess Diana’s footsteps.

We also know of the Duke and Duchess’ plans of only hiring part-time help for their newborn, as the two want to be hands on parents to their first child. The idea of being present in their child’s life is another similarity that Kate has with Princess Diana, who was also very present in her sons’ lives.

Kate Middleton and Princess Diana Lie About Due Date

Clarence House officially announced that Kate and Will are expecting their first child in July, and the Duchess herself narrowed the timeframe down, announcing she was set to give birth “around mid-July.” But the royal baby could be making an appearance earlier than we think, because according to the Daily Telegraph, Kate could have lied about her due date — just like Princess Diana famously did when she gave birth to William!

What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Should Kate and William mirror Princess Diana’s parenting style?

What is sad is that the myth of Diana’s parenting has grown to outrageous proportions. Diana, was not a good parent, but played the media to portray so. When she wanted to make sure that commoners saw her in that role she would phone the media to make sure they would be present, she did this at the waterpark, and trips abroad. Sadly the truth is is that the Queen, Philip and Charles all tried to help her. They had no experience with mental illness and didn’t know what to do.

You have to remember that she conspired a book to try to destroy the Royal lineage of her sons in an effort to get back at Charles, with no thought or concern for the well being of her children, then went on national television and trashed Charles saying William should be King not him. She was a mentally ill woman who for all her so called praise was manipulative and seriously ill. Any mother who loved her children would not have done what she did in the Panorama interview. And you don’t need to be a psychiatrist to see from that interview how mentally ill she was.

William is a Royal, and wouldn’t give up that for anything, that has always been where his loyalty lies. Charles was an amazing father, but chose to spend his time with his sons privately away from the glare of the media to give his sons a normal life. Charles and the Queen shaped who William has become. By Diana’s admission she used William as a shoulder to cry on and comfort her, this was one role that a young man should never have to ever play. Then she used William and Harry as covers to have an affair with their riding instructor, this was devastating to both boys but William more so because his mother taught him honesty and he couldn’t understand why she had used him to lie.

William is polite, caring, sensitive and a believer in the sovereign right of Royalty. Diana made headlines by taking them to McDonalds, malls etc. But, yet would never frequent such places herself. She did take the boys when she did charitble work but so had all Royal mothers before her. Towards the end, both Harry and William didn’t want to spend time with her, they felt safer with the Queen and Charles away from the constant photo shoots Diana instigated to use as a propoganda. Her boys loved her of course, and there is no doubt she loved them very much. But, as for being this wonderful parent who introduced her children to life outside of Royalty is bull.

The bottom line is that William and Kate will have their own parenting styles, and it will be based on what Kate learned from her parents, and what William learned from Charles, the Queen and the times when Diana wasn’t being manipulative. Diana came from a wealthy family, never had to do anything for herself it was all done for her. She didn’t give a hoot about how anyone else beneath her lived she was aristocratic and everyone forgets that, just because she arranges a photo shoot at places she knew commoners frequent. William and Kate will be amazing, and William is level headed enough to know what went wrong with his parents and with Kate’s down to earth non-aristocratic upbringing all children they have will be parented well, but they still won’t be allowed to play with commoners.

Amazing that you are an authority on Diana as a mother!!, However, Diana’s two sons are probably far more intimately able to make a judgement. And very obviously their’s is very different from yours. They cherish the memory of their beloved devoted mother, Diana!! I didn’t waste time reading your entire post….you obviously are a disturbed woman, whose black ugly soul prevents you from seeing the beauty and kindness of a woman who captured the heats of millions worldwide. She was practically still a child when the cold, cruel royal parasites used her.Fortunately the :Firm is obsolete and has no significant purpose or value other than theatre. And if Charles and the whore that he chose over his devoted wife and his country are the next face of the monarchy…..the show is over,.If Diana’s son, William, is the next King..will then it may survive a little longer

It sounds to me she has a lot more credibility than you do. It is established fact Diana had a mental illness, and she did make it obvious something was wrong in her ill-advised Panorama interview. Anna’s post rings true. I am sorry that your idol wasn’t all what the media made her out to be.

Anna, although you have made some valid points in your post. You have neglected to mention quite a bit of the story. Allow me to add to your post. Correct it in spots and simply share my viewpoint.
Charles was the “Heir Apparent”, he was to be King some day. He was a man about town. He went to all of the parties and events! He dated lots of women, but in the end he was in love with Camilla. However she got tired of waiting for him to settle down, and she married. Much to both of their regret! The Queen pressured Charles to settle down & marry and do what he was supposed to do, produce an heir. So he found a pretty, royal, young woman of child bearing age and he married her. Diana was a mere child when she married Charles. He was a man of the world! She was thrust into the palace, the face of the press and public. But they took a severe liking to her and hounded her, and haunted her. She suddenly and forever lost any sense of privacy! She did what she was supposed to do. She produced an “Heir AND a spare!” Once that was accomplished, her husband…the one person she should have been able to rely on in such stressful circumstances strayed. He alienated her and left her to fend for herself with the Queen, the press, the public meanwhile everyone knew he was cheating on her!
Living in that situation and trying to raise two beautiful boys would cause anyone to become mentally unstable!!! Even you! She then and therefore used any available means in which to cope. Not all were the best of moves. I sure in she were alive today she would have many regrets about her behavior. But we all must remember two things; she was a child thrust into the spotlight and she was human!
She was a loving mother to her children and you need to remember that she didn’t have any role model when it came to mothers, because her own had left her with her father at a young age. Charles cheated on her and after all she had done for the monarchy, I find NO fault in her IF she had strayed herself.
The entire world loved and adored her. Can that many people be wrong about the woman she was? I don’t think so.

As usual they let the idiots out again to make lies and rumours up. William and Kate are human beings. They may have a title but down to it they are still people. Whatever avenue they choose to emulate is their business. If they choose to follow the footsteps of Princess Diana in regards to the raising of their child that’s again, their business. Everyone should keep their opinions to themselves. And focus on their own children’s upbringing..

William’s current solar return {astrology} chart has Venus in the 12th house…indicator of secret ah, “relationships”…and he’s 300 miles away. He’s “busy”, I’ll bet he is {!}, there ‘s a possibility of some secret affair with an unknown woman.

I really think Kate should have been to support Andy Murray at Wimbledon today – as a surprise guest… What’s the matter with her, pregnancy is not an illness and her not appearing at Wimbledon is not great…. sorry

At her place.. Are not going to raise Diana style! 30 years ago.. Charles was there too. i am so
Sick of Diana style .. Kate is her own woman and will not Emulate a dead mother who ignored

Own way..and the public will rebel because of his dead mom

These comments do not even warrant a reply, God forbid a couple could possibly be happy together in this day and age of disgusting filth like immorality and homosexuality, you have to go and try and soil their relationship with vicious rumors of both. How depraved. It makes me sick. I hope the best for them and the INNOCENT child they are bringing into your wicked world.
