Kate Middleton’s parenting skills are under fire once again. This time around the Duchess of Cambridge is getting slammed for allowing her 3-year-old son Prince George to stand in a moving car during his aunt Pippa Middleton’s wedding on Saturday, May 20. What’s more, Prince George did not wear a seatbelt while the car was on its way to St. Mark’s Church for the wedding ceremony.
Photographs clearly show Prince George standing in a car that was also carrying Kate Middleton and his younger sister, Princess Charlotte. While both Kate and 2-year-old Princess Charlotte were seated, Prince George could be seen standing inside the vehicle, looking out the window and waving to the paparazzi.
Sure, the car was driving on a private road with no other vehicles nearby but a lot of critics still say that anything can happen at any given time. A lot of concerned royal observers say that it shouldn’t matter whether the car was moving slowly or fast as young toddlers Prince George’s age should have their seatbelts securely fastened at all times.
Even though Prince George and his sister Princess Charlotte easily stole the show at Pippa Middleton’s wedding, they did have their royal temper tantrum moments. George gave his mother Kate a hard time when he refused to listen to her moments before the wedding ceremony.
Kate was photographed giving the future King of England a piece of her mind outside of the church. Clearly, Prince George just wanted to have fun with the other pageboys in the wedding party, but Kate didn’t have the time or the patience for his shenanigans.
For the most part, the Duchess managed to keep the young children under control even though she had to “sshh” them a few times. If that weren’t enough, Prince George also stepped on Pippa’s wedding dress and turned his basket of confetti upside down.
And while Kate might have been feeling stressed over her role as the wedding babysitter, a lot of people say that’s still no excuse for her to not keep George securely fastened with a seatbelt inside their moving car. Of course, the last thing anyone would want to see is young Prince George bumped or bruised only moments before Pippa Middleton’s wedding ceremony.
So far Buckingham Palace has not made any comments about the controversy. In the meantime, don’t forget to check back with CDL for all the latest news and updates on the royal family right here!
