Much of Kate Middleton’s day-to-day life is kept private when she isn’t at royal events, but a source gave a surprising amount of detail to Hello! about where Kate takes her children Prince George, 8; Princess Charlotte, 7; and Prince Louis, 4, in London frequently: a local trampoline park in southwest London. The source’s testimony paints a clearer picture of the Duchess’s off-duty lifestyle—and how she doesn’t seem too much different from other parents there.
“Kate takes her kids to the trampoline park quite regularly and really blends in as any other mum,” the source said. “She went a couple of Saturdays ago with George and Louis and took her shoes off like everyone else, and was walking around the edge of the trampolines following her sons. It was a very down-to-earth mum moment, very sweet.”
Kate made headlines earlier this week for showing some very rare PDA with Prince William while at a polo match. The two kissed in front of photographs and wrapped their arms around each other at one point. It was a 180 for the couple who hardly ever touches the other at events.
Kate and William are allowed to be affectionate whenever they want under royal protocol, actually.
“It’s up to each and every royal and royal couple how affectionate they are,” Beaumont Etiquette’s Founder and Director Myka Meier, a British American trained by a former member of the Queen’s household, told ELLE.com in July 2018. “There’s no protocol that tells them they can’t hug or kiss or touch. There’s no rule book like that. Each senior member of the royal family is trusted to make the judgement calls of what’s appropriate and when. It’s all about being trusted to make those calls on their own.”
