Kate Middleton and Prince William have banned this from their house for George and Charlotte
Parenting is difficult whether you're royal or not.
While Kate Middleton and Prince William are trying to raise their children as normal as possible inside the royal fishbowl, they are taking a strict approach to avoid spoiling their children - that includes iPad access.
While most children are more accustomed to swiping than writing, the gadgets are off-limits for Prince George (four) and Princess Charlotte (two).
"They’re very much seen as Mummy and Daddy’s toys, not for children. 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. They’re very much a normal family," a source told Us Weekly, in a new profile on the family.
Meanwhile, George, who celebrated his fourth birthday last month after a tour of Poland and Germany, is reportedly becoming aware that his life is not exactly the same as the average child his age, with an insider telling the mag that's he's "at an age where he’s starting to realize that the world he lives in is different to his friends."
Unsurprisingly, two-year-old Charlotte is still oblivious to her princess status and loves Disney princesses and tagging along with her mother everywhere.
"Wherever Kate goes, so does Charlotte," they added.
Kate and William are often praised for their down-to-earth parenting skills - choosing to raise their children in Norfolk for as long as possible (they're moving to Kensington Palace later this year), signing up Prince George to a progressive private day school over William's alma mater and dressing both in clothing from the high street.
Last year, Vanity Fair reported the royal couple had the blessing of William's father Prince Charles and his grandmother Britain's Queen Elizabeth.
"The Queen and the Prince of Wales have given their blessing for William to live this life, and William is very grateful. It’s enabling him and Kate to raise their family in a way that’s as close to ordinary as they can get. William doesn’t want George and Charlotte going through some of the experiences he went through growing up. Everything he does regarding his family is very deliberate."
