Kate Middleton has been following in Princess Diana’s footsteps when it comes to raising her three children. Her attempts at modernizing the royal family are appreciated by royal fans.

While speaking on Australia’s “Today Show,” royal commentator Neil Sean said that the Duchess of Cambridge has created a clever game plan that is similar to Princess Diana’s parenting techniques. She has been making sure that Prince George, 5, Princess Charlotte, 4, and Prince Louis, 1, have normal lives despite their royal status.

Just recently, Middleton was photographed buying Halloween costumes for Prince George and Princess Charlotte. Sean said that the gesture has endeared royal fans not only to the future Queen but to the entire royal family.

“Although people weren’t allowed to take pictures, you’ve got to appreciate – and I think Kate is very clever at this – that the Royal Family has to modernize,” he said. “By that, they have to get within the people, and I think that’s a good trade Diana has given to William who passed it on to Catherine,” he added.

When Princess Diana was still alive, she made it a point to bring her sons to amusement parks. She also treated them to fast food and Happy Meal toys just like other non-royal children. As they got older, Prince William and Prince Harry revealed that their mom tried her best to make them feel that they were no different from the other kids.

Meanwhile, a royal insider told The Sun that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have always wanted their three children to live in the real world and not in a gilded bubble. As such, Prince William’s wife has imbibed Princess Diana’s parenting techniques because she understands that everything she did for her sons was done out of love.

“Kate is mindful of how much William loved his mother,” the source said. “She was very unstuffy and wanted William and Harry to fit in with their school friends and experience normality. That's the baton she handed to Kate,” the source added.
