For the most part Kate Middleton does appear to be a pretty hands-on mother. She’s not popping up in photos every single day without her new baby like some other moms (ahem, Kim Kardashian) but she still has a pretty easily life. Kate has supposedly lived a bit more frugally than a lot of the other royals but still, her staff is as big as she wants it to be and any sleepless nights because of Prince George are a choice and not a necessary side effect of being a mom.
When Kate and Prince William decided to take a week long vacation on the other side of the world recently they left little George at home with Kate’s parents. As they lounged in the Maldive’s they missed out on Prince George crawling for the first time. While they certainly are entitled to a vacation together especially after spending major time apart recently thanks to William’s taking an 11 week course at Cambridge, most parents wouldn’t leave their 8 month old baby for more than a day or two. Of course George will have plenty of other milestones that will occur right in front of his parents but will the press care.
You better believe that Camilla Parker-Bowles has tried to use this leisure trip against Kate to make her look like an uncaring mother. I can just hear all of the drunken ranting and raving about how everyone loves Kate even though she left her own baby to go and lay on a beach. Ironically, it’s a move that the other royals haven’t made in the past. Obviously times have changed and Kate is a much more modern princess but do you think it was cool for her to leave her infant for a week? Tell us your thoughts in the comments below!
