Prince William and wife Kate Middleton have been labelled as “normal parents” after appearing at the Commonwealth Games this week.

The pair appeared alongside daughter Princess Charlotte at games earlier this week, and while the latter caught the eye of the public with her typical seven-year-old behaviour, it was mum Kate who was analysed by experts.

She was seen on several occasions – and during several public appearances this year – engaging with Princess Charlotte who was making faces or looking decidedly bored watching sports she clearly didn't care about.

And it was Kate's behaviour which was classed as “normal parenting” by body language expert Judi James.

She told FEMAIL: “George, Charlotte and Louis are not only allowed to be playful, fun, spontaneous and even cheeky in public, they are actively encouraged by their mum and dad, who often look at their most proud and most doting when they are doing so.

“William and Kate’s parenting duties were always going to be unique as they’re inducting a prince, princess and future king into the rules, traditions and formalities of the royal family as well as allowing three small children to have as much fun and freedom as possible as they do so.

“What we have been seeing during their most recent public outings is how well they are managing the ‘normal’ aspect of their parenting, making them look like many other families taking their kids on a day out.

“Their techniques seem to involve remaining totally tuned into their children, while not appearing to fuss or show signals of anxiety that might be natural given the profile of the events they have been attending.”

The couple have never been shy about parenting their children in public, as was evidenced during the Queen's Platinum Jubilee celebrations in June when both of them were seen parenting their trio of kids of many occasions.

And pre-England Lionesses UEFA Euro 2022 victory at Wembley on Saturday (July 30), Prince William posted an Instagram selfie video of him with Charlotte wishing the team good luck.
