Kate Middleton is following in Princess Diana's footsteps when it comes to raising royal children

This is sweet!

Royal commentator Neil Sean has opened up about a particular similarity between Kate Middleton and the late Princess Diana.

Speaking on Australia's Today Show, the royal expert said: "If you remember, when Princess Diana was with us what she did was very clever.

"She sort of made sure that William and Harry had normal lives if you like."

"There was a very famous picture of them queuing in McDonald’s in Kensington and then there was the other picture of them at funfairs and amusement parks."

"Well, Kate has done the same thing, she has taken the same route."

Naturally, he's referring to the way in which Kate Middleton is raising her kids.

The Duchess of Cambridge is well known for her hands on approach when it comes to Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis.

Of course, there are a number of nannies and people who help, but Kate is also regularly spotted on outings with her little ones.

Mr Sean continued: "According to a royal source, she wants her children to experience the reality of life.

"There was actually a picture of Kate shopping for Halloween treats with George and Charlotte in a local supermarket near to where they were staying."

"This really endears people not just to William and Catherine but to the Royal Family in general."

He added: "Although people weren’t allowed to take pictures, you’ve got to appreciate – and I think Kate is very clever at this – that the Royal Family has to modernise."

Good on her, we say.
