Prince William and Kate Middleton’s parenting skills have come under attack once again. This time around it’s for bringing their children Prince George and Princess Charlotte on their state trip to Poland and Germany this week. Prince George in particular looked both cranky and miserable during his public appearances as he clearly looked like he wanted to be anywhere else but with his parents on their trip.
Many royal critics believe that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge insisted on bringing their children to Germany and Poland as part of their Brexit ‘charm offensive.’ The couple knows that bringing their children on the trip, everyone will talk about how cute and adorable Prince George and Princess Charlotte are. The only problem is, Prince George has refused to cooperate with his parent’s plans.
When William and Kate arrived in Warsaw on Monday, July 17, mischievous troublemaker Prince George tugged on his father’s hand as he tried to get him to board their plane. Obviously, George wanted to take a nap instead of pretending to wave at royal fans during their official meet and greet in the Polish capital.
By the time Prince William and Kate Middleton reached Germany, Prince George looked completely tired and worn out by their trip. It’s pretty safe to say that a 4-year-old like George would rather stay home and play with his toys or enjoy and afternoon at the park with his nanny than travel with his parents. Yet Prince William and Kate Middleton insist on bringing their children with them on their state trips and official royal engagements.
They know that everyone loves seeing Prince George and Princess Charlotte in public. Regardless of whether or not they are cranky and tired, both George and Charlotte always manage to steal the show. And that’s what the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge want. They want the world to see just how perfect and adorable their little royal family is, even when Prince George is acting like a rascal.
Still, a lot of fans point out that it’s almost unnecessary for Prince George and Princess Charlotte to tag along with their parents on their trips. Some say that the Duke and Duchess care more about their image than their children’s comfort. Of course, Buckingham Palace is yet to comment on it.
