Kate Middleton and Prince William protect privacy to give 'freedom' to George & Charlotte


Kate Middleton, 39, and Prince William, 38, have been married since April 29, 2011. The royals live in the public eye but may have appeared to give their children as much privacy as possible.

Kate and Prince William are the parents of three young children.

Prince George, seven, was born in 2013, Princess Charlotte, five, was born in 2015 and Prince Louis, two, was born in 2018.

Though the royals are very young, they are already set for important roles within the Royal Family.

Prince George is third in line to the British throne which means it is likely he will be King one day.

Princess Charlotte is fourth in line to the throne, followed by Prince Louis, who is sixth.

It is likely the young royals will already be learning some family protocols.

Despite this, Kate and Prince William have mostly ensured the royals stay out of the public eye.

While they have made rare public appearances, royals fans usually get a glimpse of the children when pictures are released.


The Duchess of Cambridge is known for her love of photography and will often share family photos she has taken herself.

By doing this, Kate could be trying to protect their privacy by limiting how much of her children is seen, according to Zoe Bonser, show director at The Baby Show.

The expert commented: “Kate generally seems to be commended as a great and inspirational mum.

“She promotes that children deserve time, attention and love from their parents.

“She advocates that children should speak about their feelings, be taught kindness, respect and honesty and greatly values the importance of hugs.

“Usually Kate takes pictures herself, giving her the freedom and power over what is used in public – and a chance to use her artistic skills.”

During the various coronavirus lockdowns, Kate has continued to share family photos taken at home.

The Duchess of Cambridge has even been recognised for her photography talents.

She has been given an honorary lifetime membership to the Royal Photographic Society to celebrate her family portraits.

While Kate will often take her own pictures, the expert stated she will sometimes allow them to make public appearances where they are photographed.

Zoe told Express.co.uk: “Kate is definitely seen as more traditional.

“For instance, the children are always dressed in traditional British clothing for public appearances and these appearances are often accompanied with a lot of photos of the children.”
