Prince William celebrated his very first Father’s Day yesterday and instead of it being an over the top occasion it was marked very simply. Prince William and Prince Harry took part in a polo match while Kate Middleton and little Prince George looked on. Isn’t that how so many other dads’ spend their day, knee deep in sports with the family nearby? Kate showed up in her very favorite stripped ME + Em top and little George was adorable in seersucker shorts. Best of all, they were real. Kate was in hands on mommy mode and it’s something that she obviously is in. The interactions with George showed just how bonded Kate is to her son and drew quite the contrast of another family also spotted out this weekend. Kim Kardashian was spotted out with Kanye West and baby Nori and let me tell you, this woman still doesn’t know how to hold her baby. There is no bond and she isn’t comfortable with her own child in her arms!
Of course we always knew that Kate would be in the same mothering trenches as other young British moms, right? This Sunday afternoon was one more example of the young royals saying that they want to be normal and then walking there own version of exactly that. George wasn’t strapped into a buggy, instead he was showing that he’s an early walker and toddling through the grass holding Kate’s hand. That’s likely a good thing too if those pregnancy rumors are as true as we have heard them to be! Kate needs her son to be as independent and steady on his feet as possible within the next few months so that she can breathe a bit easier while preparing for another newborn or two, right?
Was Kate and William’s afternoon out just one more way to help endear them to the British people? It was obviously a smart move as a family to show how close knit they are but was it also a kind of brilliant PR move? Tell us your thoughts in the comments below!
