Once, Prince William said Kate Middleton probably wouldn't approve him to get a PS4. While the prince saw some potential in PlayStation's latest console, he was sure that the duchess of Cambridge would refuse him the pleasure of diving in the head first. Given that he admitted that the system is addictive, it is not surprising that the young mother would be hesitant.
As it turns out, Prince William was probably right when Middleton brought his husband on board for a few game-related household rules.
iPads are banned at Kensington Palace
Royal parents do their best to give their children a normal childhood. Sure they are raised as royalty, but they certainly deserve the opportunity to embrace their youth. For many children, it means having access to a host of video games on portable systems as well as home consoles.
While the Prince and Princesses enjoy their formative years, they are not allowed to manipulate one of Apple's most addictive products, the iPad. The experienced parents encourage their children to play outdoors when the weather is good or to interact with "analog" toys. Considering that the couple grew up beautifully without access to gadgets with tons of bells and whistles, it is not surprising. They just want their children to use their performances and live a real childhood that is not controlled by video and video games.
TVs are also limited to Kensington Palace
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge do their best to limit the Time Screen for their elders, Prince George. In his few years on the planet, he has developed a love for television and already has a few favorite shows and video games. The loving parents give Prince George one hour of television each day. Why are his younger siblings not capable of such standards?
If Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis showed a great interest in television, they would definitely impose these rules on them. As it stands, the two youngsters enjoy spending time in the garden with their mother more than indulging in television. Prince George also has other hobbies that keep him busy after using his television time including skiing, tennis, playing in the garden with his siblings and enjoying his dinosaur characters.
What makes Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis play with?
Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis use their imagination for the content of their hearts. They are encouraged to enjoy sports, play in the outdoors and interact with old-fashioned toys. So what are some of the royal children's go-tos? Prince George absolutely adorns the infamous colorful building piece, Legos. Before discovering the joy of Legos, he had some wooden blocks to sharpen his skills. The young prince also got a fantastic rocking horse, a bike that he loves to ride and a tree train. He has already shown an intense love for two specific subgroups of toys: things on wheels and police-related items.
Princess Charlotte was gifted a wooden feet when she was very young and used it to push some of her other toys around. As she grew older, she developed a love for several wooden toy sets and Disney princesses. Given that Prince Louis is so young, he still has no faves, but with two older siblings showing him the ropes, he is sure to handle the non-electronic toy life with ease.
Are other toys banned in the palace?
Outside prohibiting iPads and limiting screen time, there is a surprising board game that has made the no-go list in Kensington Palace. The popular board game Monopoly. The royal family as a whole must not play the game. While no one really knows who started the rule, Prince Andrew said the family is not allowed to play the game at home. In his opinion, "It gets too vicious." Anyone who is played Monopoly knows how cutthroat things can get, so it's probably good it's not allowed on the baby's table or table for that matter!
