Kate Middleton, Prince William and Prince George: How Are They Doing?

by at . Comments

After all of the hype that surrounded the birth of the Royal Baby last month, Prince George and his parents have been laying extremely low since.

There's no Kim Kardashian-Kanye West-esque conflict about that, either.

After welcoming their son July 22, the couple headed to her parents' home in Bucklebury, England, to live a quiet life while adjusting to parenthood.

The first royal order of business after the birth was simple: sleep. For all.

Then the basic routine: Wake up. Tend to George. Eat. Sleep. Repeat.

Prince George may be the future King of England, but Prince William and Kate Middleton strive to bring up a thoroughly modern - and happy - baby.

Dinners might be cooked with help of housekeeper Antonella Fresolone, but even with two future kings of England at the table, "there's no special treatment."

"William still has to help load the dishwasher after dinner. The same will apply to George when he's a grown boy," says a source of the royal heirs.

The couple have no nanny, nor do they have plans to hire one.

"They're doing as much as they can by themselves," says the family source of Kate Middleton and Prince William. "The baby is always with one of them, or asleep."

The parents hope to give Prince George Alexander Louis - or Georgie, as Prince Charles predicts he'll be nicknamed - a pressure-free and normal childhood.

Now, as the pair spend laid-back weeks in Bucklebury getting to know their bundle of joy, parenthood is as rewarding as they might have imagined.

"They're loving it," says a source close to the couple.

"Every day is bringing new things to learn."
