The Cambridge children's behavior has always been considered impeccable by royal fans, but how did Prince William and Duchess Catherine manage to raise such well-behaved children?


In recent months, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's children have been taking a central position in the Royal Family because of their position in the royal line of succession. The three children appeared on the balcony during the Queen's Platinum Jubilee in June, and since this occasion, Princess Charlotte has appeared at the Commonwealth Games, and Prince George was invited to attend Wimbledon with his parents.

These recent examples highlight the royal couple's trust in their children and their belief that their eldest children are ready to handle the pressure and scrutiny that comes with being a member of the Royal Family at a large-scale event.

However, it has been revealed that Prince William and Kate aren't helping their children adjust to this scrutiny alone. Reportedly the children will have been receiving etiquette lessons since their childhood and will be well equipped to handle these challenges.

"Prince George and Princess Charlotte’s etiquette education likely started as soon as they could attend events with their family," Royal Etiquette Expert Myka Meier told Cosmopolitan.com (opens in new tab).

The expert added that this would have begun with their mother's informal teaching before developing into something more formal. "It would probably begin with simple training like how to shake hands and curtsy around the age of two. Initial training would likely be given by their mother, The Duchess of Cambridge," said Myka.

The expert added that unlike those who marry into the Royal Family - like Kate Middleton or Meghan Markle - the young royals will not receive a crash course in etiquette. Instead, the children will be taught every day how to behave properly and what is expected of them as an individual in their position.

"Growing up in the Palace would mean that training is much less a course or official training, and more day-to-day observation and gentle lessons right before an event or when meeting an important guest to help prepare them," said the expert.

This perfect behavior has been observed by many people over the years, specifically during Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's wedding in 2018. Claudia Bradbury attended the Royal wedding and told ITV, "They were very well practised, they looked as if they were really enjoying it."

Claudia compared this perfect behavior with another attendee who needed to be bribed to behave properly, "One little girl was upset but being comforted by the promise of Peppa Pig and Smarties later."

It seems that these children don't need the promise of cartoons and sweeties and are just super well-behaved!
