Kate Middleton's parenting is once again under scrutiny after a supposed failure that fans documented at Pippa's wedding last weekend.
What did the Duchess (allegedly) do so wrong?
George was spotted by paparazzi looking out the window of a moving vehicle while en route to Pippa Middleton’s wedding on May 20.
By allowing three-year-old son Prince George to ride a moving car while standing and without any seat belt on, Kate is catching flak.
While the vehicle was riding on a private road with no other cars were nearby, some believe allowing a toddler to do this is still suspect.
Regardless of the situation, or the car’s speed, royal observers (a.k.a. Twitter) think that this was a serious oversight on Kate's part.
Moreover, the Duchess of Cambridge has also been criticized for how she reacted to her children during Pippa's nuptials last Saturday.
Reports one observer from the wedding:
“Clearly, Prince George just wanted to have fun ... in the wedding party, but Kate didn’t have the time or the patience for his shenanigans."
Of course, Kate is probably scrutinized more than any mother on the planet, and commits relatively few errors, so ... get a life people.
She could also be described as a particularly “normal” mom for a woman of her stature, considering some recent remarks she made.
Earlier this year, Kate visited one of Anna Freud Centre for Children and Families’ specialist units, catering to mothers with depression.
At the time, she admitted that “parenting is tough” for her as well, but she can't imagine some of the hardships that they've been through.
Paying tribute to the strong women, she praised them for survive through the many hardships and “experiences [they’ve] all witnessed.”
Husband Prince William seems quite fond of his wife's style, recently opening up in an interview about his two children's upbringing.
“Catherine and I are clear that we want George and Charlotte to grow up feeling able to talk about their emotions and feelings,” he said.
“Over the past year we have visited a number of schools."
"We have been amazed listening to children talk about some quite difficult subjects in a really clear and emotionally articulate way."
"Something most adults would struggle with.”
Bottom line, at the end of the day?
Kate and William’s three-year-old first-born may have managed to step on Pippa’s wedding dress and turn a confetti basket upside down.
She may struggle to control George’s screen time, much like many other parents who use gadgets to occupy their offspring.
But her heart is in the right place.
She's doing all she can what can be often be described as an arduous and thankless job, no matter your wealth or status.
Anyone who's observed William, Kate or their children can clearly sensed that they're being raised well. Perfectly? No.
Who is, though? Step off, haters.
