This is why Prince George is always pictured holding William’s hand. It’s important for the future of the monarchy though it’s not strictly to do with gender.
A parenting expert has revealed why Prince George is always snapped holding his dad’s hand. Photos of Kate and William with their children tend to follow a similar pattern, with Princess Charlotte close to her mum. But have you ever wondered why, or if this is anything more than a coincidence?
Parenting expert Jasmine Peters says it’s not by chance they are often pictured in this way – though it’s not strictly to do with gender. She believes it’s all about preparing George for his role as King one day, reports the Mirror.
Jasmine told the Daily Mail: “It is not uncommon to see a father with his son to set the foundation of what his role and responsibilities will be in life with a family.
“It is often believed that it takes a man to raise a boy to be a man.
“Yes, it could reflect that Kate and William are traditional, but it also reflects the importance of the bond created between father and son and mother and daughter that they both treasure and hold dearly as responsible and loving parents.”
Jasmine called Kate and William ‘instinctive’ parents and said that they understand the importance of a son’s bond with his father and a daughter’s with her mum. The Sleep Nanny and expert at The Baby Show Lucy Shrimpton also told the Daily Mail that when the younger child is at a stage of depending on their mum, the older child can gravitate more towards dad. But she says she believes this would happen regardless of gender.
Prince George was delighted after receiving the one present he had asked for this Christmas, his dad revealed. The four-year-old requested a toy car from Santa, and Prince William explained at Sandringham that there was ‘much excitement’ when he got one.
