So far we have had 23 Official photos/appearances of Prince George. That averages to approximately 1 set of official pictures/appearance every 2.0 months

So far we have had 12 photos/appearances from Princess Charlotte. That averages to approximately 1 set of official pictures/appearance every 2.1 months

This list does not include paparazzi pics, polo matches, airports, private weddings, in the back seat of car, etc.

Now do we really need to see the children more than 2 months on average

Photos aren't 'seeing' they are simply that - photos. Many of them with no interaction with other people involved.

Actually 'seeing' someone means that person appears in public and is seen to be doing things by real, ordinary people not just family. George has been seen once this year - why? Is there something wrong with him?

William has stated he doesn't want them raised behind palace walls but he never lets them out to actually grow up with real, normal people. He says one thing and does the other.

Photos/appearances. Its' both. for a couple of toddlers they do quite alright with official photos/appearances. WE had lots of video during Christmas and Pippa's wedding,

Non of this includes all the times they do 'regular' things like going to the museum petting zoo or the polo.

George goes to nursery school with regular kids. They aren't staying behind the walls of the palace. The people in Norfolk are respecting their privacy like the people in Buckleberry and Anglesey did and not recording their every move.

To be surrounded by a gaggle of photographers and onlookers when a kid is being just a kid isn't interacting with their "subjects". To be the center of attention among a huge gathering of people because of who one is, for a kid, is scary. Events like this past one where people say it would have been nice to see the Cambridge kids, I think, would have been confusing for the little ones, a handful for the parent in charge (as has been pointed out) and basically, the kids at that age have short attention spans and really don't know what polo really is from a hill of beans. The Cambridges opted out of bringing the kids. William was there for a reason. That's totally fine with me.

To grow up in a "normal" environment interacting with other people and especially children their own age is a horse of a different color. Its not appearing in public that does it. George and Charlotte will learn from events like Trooping the Color and being on the balcony bit by bit what their family role in the scheme of things are. The important things are their interactions with other people by going to school and the other everyday things that build up a child's social world.

To grow perhaps to want to take on roles of service as their father and their uncle did by watching examples. Daddy was a helicopter pilot to help save lives. Uncle Harry was a soldier and now works to help sick soldiers. Mummy does a lot of things for little kids that need it. Even eating dinner as a family in the kitchen and sneaking those vegetables under the table to Lupo is what is more "normal" than kids eating with nanny in the nursery while Mum and Dad dress for dinner and are served a five course meal.

The desire for Cambridge kids to grow up "normal" and not behind palace walls, to me, simply means that some of the old fashioned rules and regulations of raising kids have had to be discarded. Emphasis on being a family for the little ones take priority. Going to school and interacting with other children is crucial to building social skills. George and Charlotte as little people are the priority and their prince and princess roles are their destiny in the future. Its important to the Cambridges that the children develop as little people first then grow into the prince and princess roles when the time comes.

Having them out and among the "subjects' and getting photographed and followed around and all attention on them could very well be detrimental to their development as too much of that could give the kids the impression that they are special among ordinary and they're more interesting than ordinary and that they're always seen as being "above" ordinary. So, it doesn't surprise me in the least that Kate and William want to keep this to a minimum.

Raising a child to have an "ordinary" ego starts with keeping things simple and ordinary from the start. At least that's how I see it.

Let's move back on topic please - this thread is about the British Royal Family current events. Post specifically about Prince George and Princess Charlotte can be made in their own thread/s.

It is interesting that the Queen made the visit with Prince William. It might be just a coincidence, but it adds to the speculation on who the Queen's "plus one" will be as the Duke of Edinburgh retires from public life.

There was some anger from those who didn't get a chance to meet The Queen and William. William heard them and responded by saying, "I will come back."

I thought about this as well - I can't remember when last we saw just the Queen and William at an official engagement.
I think it's a positive step, particularly with a tragedy of this magnitude, to have the Queen and the popular future King showing their support.

William was the most logical choice IMO as he and Catherine are the most senior royals to live in the same London borough as the tower block is in. Charles was undertaking an Investiture ceremony so to me is all makes sense and is especially appropriate for this particular event.

Bravo to HMQ and the Duke of Cambridge, this cannot have been comfortable or easy for them, since 'feelings are running high'.
Whilst the visceral anger of the North Kensington community is absolutely understandable, so is the reticence and apprehension of those in authority who visit in an attempt to learn, to understand, comfort and encourage. It cannot be easy to communicate when anger levels are so high, and when those affected are so ready to lash out at ANYONE in authority, whether or not they are responsible...

I hope William, Catherine and Harry make a visit to the injured in hospital and their families. It was great to see The Queen and William making this visit too.

It's great that HM and Prince William visited the area around Grenfell. I too hope that the hospitalised victims of the fire will get a royal visit soon.

They had a joint engagement last month.
I agree it was a good choice to send the Queen and William. Charles, the future king, Camilla and Catherine were busy as well today and it's very nice to see that the "team" is hard at work.
We can expect more visits from the senior royals anytime soon ...

He was stuck between a rock and a head place. Wanted to walk over and asked for permission but security/others clearly said "no come along" and so he did. One does not keep grandmother waiting in the car.
