The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are raising their son in a totally modern way — but the Queen is still stepping in to make sure they also follow some important traditions! She ‘insists’ on incorporating history with the future of the monarchy!
Queen Elizabeth II has been very receptive to Kate Middleton and Prince William‘s efforts to modernize the monarchy — but she insists that the couple raises their adorable son Prince George with a sense of tradition that keeps with the family’s historical image.
Queen Elizabeth II Insists Prince George Have Some Traditional Upbringing
Will and Kate have managed to incorporate modern updates into the way they’re raising their royal baby! “The Queen is letting William tear up the rule book to an extent,” a royal insider told In Touch Weekly. After all, “he is the future of the monarchy,” explained the source.
Rather than fight for traditional measures at every turn, “she picks her battles, but she does insist on some tradition,” revealed the source. Especially when it comes to little Prince George!
Though Kate and Will revealed they want a relaxed, normal childhood for their little boy, the Queen wants to introduce George to the family’s formal traditions! Prince George’s Oct. 23 christening was a perfect example of how the family is able to put modern touches on regal ceremonies!
Prince William & Kate Middleton Modernize Royal Parenting
Will and Kate have broken with tradition in seemingly little ways that show they are pushing boundaries without being inappropriate or disrespectful of the monarchy’s rich history. One of the new parents’ first major moves away from tradition was spending their first month with George at the Middleton’s family estate in Bucklebury rather than moving straight into the palace.
The couple made another huge move when they released family photos snapped by Kate’s dad Michael for their son’s official portrait in lieu of a professional photographer.
What do YOU think, HollyMoms? Do you think it’s a good idea to keep some tradition when raising George?
