- Kate Middleton is spending quarantine being super hands-on with her kids, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis.
- Kate has been decorating cakes and planting seeds to keep the kids entertained.
How have you been spending your social isolation? I mostly hang out with my new Animal Crossing family, passive-aggressively FaceTime my friends at weird hours, and try to find the will to put on pants. But if you're in need of some, uh, motivation, please look no further than Kate Middleton and Prince William.
The couple are currently holed up in their country home, where they're spending a ton of time with their kids; Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis. “Kate bakes and decorates cakes with the kids [on] the weekend to keep them entertained," a source tells Us Weekly. "The kitchen is always a complete mess by the end of it, but it’s all part of the fun — that’s how Kate sees it. They also enjoy gardening together and planting seeds.”
Cool-cool-cool. I, too, am planting seeds.
According to a second source, “Kate is mainly in charge of the home-schooling and playtimes, but William is also very involved too. He teaches them lessons and organizes games.”
Meanwhile, the kids are getting along great with each other: “Kate counts her blessings that the kids get on so well. George has been helping Charlotte with her gymnastics and they’ll spend hours practicing cartwheels, headstands and other moves together. Louis tries to join in too!”
Speaking of Louis, his second birthday is coming up at the end of April, and: “If the weather is nice, William’s planning to cook some chicken and burgers on BBQ and play outdoor sports and games as a family — football, chase and hide and seek. And obviously Louis will have a cake too! He’s so excited about his big day and is already singing ‘Happy Birthday’ to himself.”
Wow, this kid is a true inspiration.
