Kate Middleton married Prince William in 2011 in a lavish ceremony in Westminster Abbey. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have since welcomed three children. Prince George, eight, is an older brother to Princess Charlotte, six, and Prince Louis, three.
Their uncle, Prince Harry, married American actress Meghan Markle in 2018.
They have since welcomed two children, Archie Harrison, two, born in 2019, and Lilibet Diana, born just this June.
The Cambridges live in Kensington Palace in London, and they also have a country residence out in Norfolk called Anmer Hall.
The Sussexes, however, left royal life in early 2020 and moved to North America to raise their children in Montecito, Santa Barbara in California.
A parenting expert spoke exclusively to Express.co.uk about the different parenting styles between Kate and Meghan.
Jo Austin has 30 years of experience as a tutor and educational consultant with Tayberry Tuition and Consultancy.
Jo said: “Kate obviously has the pressure of bringing up the future King, as both the Queen and Diana had.
“But as someone who had a ‘normal’ childhood very much out of the attention of the public/aristocracy, she wants to ensure her children are kept down to earth and grounded.
“She has spoken in the past about her fond memories of her childhood.
“Kate wants to ensure her children have those same happy memories when they’re older.
“She told the ‘Happy Mum, Happy Baby’ podcast that they spend as much time outdoors as possible as a family.
“Also, they try to have as many adventures as they can when they’re together and one parent or another isn’t on a royal engagement.
“From afar, it seems that Meghan is a much more protective parent.
“She wants her children to have an upbringing as much out of the limelight as possible.
“Meghan also cherishes the value in spending time outdoors and having fun, similar to that of Kate, as can be seen in their chicken coop which they lovingly look after in Los Angeles.”
Kate and William employ a nanny from the Norland College called Maria Teresa Turrion Borrallo.
Maria was employed by the Cambridges in 2014 when Prince George was just eight months old.
Jo spoke on whether Meghan and Harry employ similar help in Montecito.
Jo continued: “It would be expected that Meghan would have some kind of help in the house with her children.
“Especially with the variety of engagements her and her husband Harry attend as part of their charity work,” she added.
