Even when you’re a princess, being a mom is hard work. In fact, you can easily argue that being a mom is even harder when the entire world is watching you.
Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, is a mom of three. Her oldest son will one day be the King of England—talk about pressure!
Kate Middleton Put on a Show of Patience While Prince Louis Did His Best to Test It
Over the weekend, we saw more of Kate Middleton and Prince William’s children than we have over the last couple of years. And while her youngest, Prince Louis, stole the show during the Trooping of the Colors earlier last weekend, he stole the show in a different way last night.
While the Queen’s Jubilee celebrating her 70 years of reign concluded on Sunday, it was rather clear in a video shared by People that Prince Louis had had enough. And he made that very clear to his mom.
In the video shared on People’s Instagram page, the video shows Kate attempting to talk with her youngest son, Prince Louis coped an attitude and threw a tantrum like many 5-year-olds often do. However, this particular tantrum is now being examined by millions of people all over the world.
The tiny prince is seen putting his hand over Catherine’s mouth, sticking his tongue out at her, and even wagged his finger in her face before pouting in his chair. It was clear Kate had just about enough of her son’s antics as she appeared to give him a stern talking to.
Fellow celebrity mom, Amy Roloff of Little People, Big World, offered her support in the comments section of the Instagram post letting Kate know she gets it. “Oh I so feel you, Princess Kate,” Amy wrote. “Especially being in such the public eye and your kids do this.”
And other commenters praise Kate for “keeping it together” while the Prince tested her patience in a very public way. “Bless her for having to parent in front of the world,” one person wrote.
“I am so impressed with her composure,” another mom admitted. “Kids are the same whether royal or not.”
What is the Jubilee all about? This platinum jubilee is the celebration of the Queen’s 70 years on the British throne, which continues to be a historic moment for England.
Just a few days before this video was captured, Prince Louis stole people’s hearts with his adorably animated reactions to the planes flying overhead as the Royal Family stood on the balcony with the Queen. Cameras even captured the royal tike interacting with his great-grandmother.
It just goes to show that regardless of if you’re a normal family or a family that governs an entire country and more, kids will be kids no matter who is watching.
