This is how Prince William and Kate Middleton are teaching Prince George about 'Granny Diana'
Diana never actually got to meet Kate, or her grandchildren George, Charlotte, or Louis, but Prince William has previously spoken about how he thinks she would do as a granny
Prince George soon turns 5 on July 22, but the only person his parents Kate and William, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, seem to be missing is his late grandmother, Princess Diana. The royal couple is making an extra effort to make their eldest child remember his grandmother, according to InStyle, and the two are reportedly teaching their kids about the late 'People's Princess.'
“We’ve got more photos up around the house now of her and we talk about her a bit and stuff,” Prince William said in the HBO special Diana: Her Life and Legacy, further adding that he and his wife are "constantly talking about Granny Diana.” Not only Prince George, but his royal siblings Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis are all learning about their late grandmother through their royal parents.
“It’s hard because obviously Catherine didn’t know her, so she cannot really provide that—that level of detail,” he said. “So, I do [when] regularly putting George or Charlotte to bed, talk about her and just try and remind them that there are two grandmothers, there were two grandmothers in their lives, and so it’s important that they know who she was and that she existed.”
Even though Diana never actually got around to meeting her daughter-in-law Kate, or even her grandchildren George, Charlotte, or Louis, Prince William has previously spoken about how he envisions his mom would do if she had ever become a grandma when she was alive.
“She’d be a nightmare grandmother, absolute nightmare,” he joked. “She’d love the children to bits, but she’d be an absolute nightmare. She’d come and go and she’d come in probably at bath time, cause an amazing amount of scene, bubbles everywhere, bathwater all over the place and—and then leave.”
“I want to make as much time and effort with Charlotte and George as I can because I realize that these early years particularly are crucial for children, and having seen, you know, what she did for us," he concluded.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge — Prince William and Kate Middleton - are making sure that Prince George's birthday turns out to be a beautiful memory for their first born. Therefore Prince George, born on July 22, 2013, will be having a lavish birthday party thrown for him by his parents, who are reportedly planning to go all out on their celebrations this year.
As reported earlier, the royal couple is sparing no expense. "Kate is organizing a lavish $100,000 birthday party for George in the gardens of Kensington Palace," a royal insider told the publication. "Kate doesn't always spoil her kids like this, but she wants George's 5th to be a day to remember!" the source was quoted as saying.
"There will be lots of toy cars, like mini Ferraris, for George and his friends to drive around the gardens in," the insider says. They added, "There will be hundreds of balloons and a huge Lego area where the kids can build. And Kate also plans to set up a little fairground and a bouncy house."
According to the report, William and Kate have also ensured that there will be no dearth of entertainers at their son's fifth birthday party. The couple has ordered for at least 15 different entertainers, ranging from magicians to pizza makers. Moreover, they seem to have spent a lot of time and effort into selecting their little one's cake, with the royal insider saying, "Kate is going to surprise George with a huge, colorful, custom-made birthday cake."
The little one is already quite famous on his own, cute little way, and he even has a dedicated Instagram page to his name. For people who are still not aware, Prince George does not operate an Instagram account of his own, since the royal family has a rule which prevents any member of the royal family from having an active social media account.
But a Prince George spoof account does exist on the social media platform, and it is known for its sassy comments on the royal family, including Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton.
The spoof account belongs to Gary Janetti, who is a US-based writer with credits on Family Guy and Will and Grace. The posts on the account are sarcastic in nature and have gained a massive following of 315,000 fans, including celebrities like Sarah Michelle Gellar, Kaley Cuoco, and Lea Michele.
Most of the posts feature Prince George commenting on Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex. In one of the posts, the caption says, “Could you have picked something more basic? Even I have that dress.” However, Meghan's not the only person from the family under the line of fire. The fake Instagram account has also made fun of Kate, and has a picture of hers with the caption, “Don’t come near me again until you've lost the weight.”
