Prince George has to do chores for pocket money and screen time, says royal expert

The Prince and Princess of Wales are “hands-on” parents who have their children doing chores, a royal expert has claimed.

It’s been a busy period for Kate and William, both 40, who have had to balance their move from Kensington Palace to Windsor while settling their three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, in at their new school.

And now royal expert Katie Nicholl has discussed their parenting techniques, saying it’s likely their children do chores in return for pocket money or rewards.

“I’d imagine they’ll have all the children doing chores like laying the table for dinner in return for pocket money or rewards like screen time,” Katie, who has just published The New Royals: Queen Elizabeth’s Legacy And The Future Of The Crown, told OK! .

The couple have now resumed royal duties following the death of William’s grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, who passed away on 8 September.

According to Katie, they have the “royal juggle” down to a T.

“They try to schedule royal engagements as much as they can around George and Charlotte’s schedules – football practice and gymnastics clubs and playdates with cheesy pasta,” she continued.

“They try to do the school run as much as possible. Yes, they have a nanny and a housekeeper, but it’s Kate preparing tea most days. She really is completely hands-on.”

It comes after Kate was all smiles as she met with sailors from the Royal Navy in her first solo royal engagement following the Queen's passing.

Kate dressed in a navy suit and white blouse, held an audience with the ship’s company of HMS Glasgow at Windsor Castle last Thursday.

In 2021, she became the sponsor of the City Class Type 26 frigate, which is currently under construction in Govan, Scotland.

She spoke with dozens of sailors about how the ship’s build is going and what life is like in the Royal Navy.

“It was a huge honour to be invited to Windsor Castle and to meet Her Royal Highness The Princess of Wales,” said Darran Sullivan, the ship’s Executive Warrant Officer.

He added: “The appointment of sponsor signals an enduring connection between the ship’s crew and Her Royal Highness. It is clear from meeting her that she has a real interest in HMS Glasgow and in the lives of those who will serve onboard.”

Petty Officer Colin Chalmers, who joined as one of HMS Glasgow’s Marine Engineers last month, echoed the sentiment: “It was amazing meeting The Princess of Wales, particularly as there was such a small group of us in attendance.

“The moment she walked into the room her enthusiasm and genuine interest in us really shone through and put us immediately at ease.”
