Bristol news Kate Middleton breaks several royal traditions with children's upbringing MetiNews.Com
MetiNews.Com - The Duchess of Cambridge has proved she is not following the Queen in every tradition
Breaking News ! There are certain royal traditions that have been broken over the years. For example, ever since Princess Diana decided to give birth in a hospital, the royal habit of giving birth at home seemed to become outdated. The Queen stuck by the tradition and gave birth to all four of her children at either Buckingham Palace or Clarence House, but Kate chose to follow Diana’s footsteps and give birth at the Lindo Wing of St Mary's Hospital, as the Express reports. Another significant difference between the monarch and the Duchess is that Kate is known to show her children affection publicly, while Her Majesty is more reserved, especially with her first two children. Speaking to Town & Country about the Queen’s displays of affection, historian Robert Lacy said: ”Evidence suggests she became warmer and more flexible as time went by.” Body language expert Patti Wood said Kate, as well as Prince William, get on their children’s eye level as it “shows that their children are their primary focus”.

The Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William, on the other hand, sent their children to preschool so they can socialise with other children. When it came to spending free time with their children both women also have different approaches. The Queen taught her children about her love of horses while teaching them horse riding, with Princess Anne even becoming an Olympic equestrian, while Kate shares her love for tennis with Prince George.

Speaking at an event supporting mental health services for families, Kate said: "There is no rulebook, no right or wrong; you just have to make it up and do the very best you can to care for your family.” Despite their diverse parenting style, the Queen welcomed Kate into the Royal Family in what seemed a subtle suggestion of William’s intentions of marrying her.
. Mr Jobson writes: “In September 2005, I received a tantalising telephone call from a senior Buckingham Palace insider. “The source seemed quite upbeat, the news was happy. “When I pressed the informant, a story unfolded that made me begin to appreciate just how important Kate was, and went a long way towards hinting at just how important she may yet become. “I was told that Kate had had a series of private meetings with the Queen. “The two – joined by William – had had at least two intimate dinners in recent months, and Her Majesty had developed a ‘warm and relaxed relationship’ with her grandson’s girlfriend.
