Prince William and Kate Middleton are 'empowering' their children, royal expert claims


Prince William and Kate Middleton are ’empowering’ their children to ‘play an active part’ in royal life – including ‘confidence building’ video chat with Sir David Attenborough, royal expert claims

  • Prince William and Kate Middleton are ’empowering’ their children early on
  • Royal commentator claims the Cambridge children are already being trained
  • Victoria Arbiter said meeting with David Attenborough ‘ticked multiple boxes’
  • She also said that video of young royals helps to endear them to the public 

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are ’empowering’ their children to prepare them to ‘play an active part’ in royal life, a royal expert claims.

Last month the Cambridges had a special back-garden viewing of David Attenborough’s new documentary A Life on Our Planet, what seemed like a special treat for their children who love Sir David’s nature pogrammes.

Now, however, royal commentator Victoria Arbiter claims that the screening was a carefully orchestrated public appearance to help train the next generation of royals.

Writing on 9Honey, Arbiter said that the published video of Prince George, Louis and Princess Charlotte after the documentary ‘ticked multiple boxes’ because on top of highlighting a major issue, the children were gently encouraged to play a key role.

She said: ‘Destined as they are for a lifetime of royal service, it’s imperative they learn early on what their future roles will require.’

Arbiter added that although speaking into a camera might seem quite easy, its an effective way to build confidence among the royal children, and allowing them to master the art of public speaking early on can only be a benefit. 

Additionally, the royal commentator pointed out that the video of the young royals gave the rest of a nation a glimpse at the inner workings of the royal family – something that endears the younger members to the public. 

She wrote that William’s own personal experience of growing up as a royal will be shaping his approach to raising his own children.

‘He and Kate have made a concerted effort to protect their brood from the harshest elements of royal life – namely cameras – but they’ve also strived to instil a healthy understanding of the media’s role,’ she said.

Arbiter writes that the same level of control has also been displayed when the children appear in public, such as Prince George and princess Charlotte’s first Christmas Day Walk last year.

She also described Prince Louis’ debut appearance as ‘show-stopping’  after he asked Sir David Attenborough what ‘ammimal’ he likes.

Despite claiming that the appearance was a PR stunt, Arbiter also said it would be a disservice to suggest that the move was PR-based alone.

The commentary comes after the Cambridges met Sir David Attenborough at Kensington Palace for a private screening of his latest documentary which highlights the peril our planet faces.

After the screening, Prince George, seven, was given a tooth from an extinct giant shark, which lived 23 million years ago, which he had found on a family holiday to Malta in the late 1960s. 

The three children are all interested in dinosaurs and were fascinated by the megalodon fossil and excitedly asked Sir David a number of questions.
