Kate Middleton and Prince William, both 38, have been married since April 29, 2011. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have three children who will sometimes join them in public appearances. A body language expert explained parenting techniques they could use.

Kids will sometimes delight royal fans with appearances at events such as the Royal Christmas Day Service or Trooping the Color.During her public appearance, Kate’s interactions with her children gave clues to her parenting style.

She uses a technique that appears to encourage her children’s independence, suggested body language expert Judi James.

The expert told Express.co.uk: “Kate obviously finds it important to create a unit of four (and now five) strong.


“His attention and bonding skills seem to involve bending down at the child’s waist to communicate, which might suggest a desire to develop his self-confidence by tuning in to make him feel more adult and independent.

Judi claimed the mother-of-three had a parenting style aimed at increasing the confidence of her children.

This is something that seems to be important to Kate and she has encouraged their independence at a number of events.

Judi continued, “Kate uses a facial gaze technique with Charlotte, with her broad smile of joy showing that she’s also totally obsessed.

The Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William appear to be aligned with their parenting roles and Judi explained that they have a united front.

She continued, “Kate used coordinating colors to emphasize the feeling of a strong oneness, though their clothing styles all project individuality.

“Rather than clustering around her children, she opted for a line-up of ‘paper dolls’ with William being an integral part of the group. ”
