Of course discipline is not violence and I never said that I encouraged violence as a solution. That was not my point, but nowadays it's a crime to scold your children with, for example, slap his/hers little but or a slap on the hands. It's sad that is now regarded as violence and not discipline.
Some children don't behave well with just scolding and verbal correction, so just we let them go wild? Unfortunately, I've seen the results of it, and I fear what will become of the future generation.

Yes, I remember the incident very clearly. I was surprised by the uproar over it. She whacked his backside once and then marched him gently but firmly to the car. William was older than four though, he was about eight.

On another occasion when he was younger he disobeyed his nanny, the late Olga Powell, and ran out onto a polo field where his father Prince Charles was playing. He wasn't spanked but the photo of him bawling while being severely scolded by Olga was flashed around the world.

I 100% agree with LaRae and the others. Spanking a child is not always abuse. We now live in the era of "time outs" instead of spanking and the forbidding of corporal punishment from schools.(which I am in favor of) But has it resulted in better behaved and better adjusted children?

Thanks for finding that article. I remember that the media didn't seem too upset with the spank and it didn't become "slapgate" back then. Everyone knew Diana was a loving mother and didn't beat her babies. All children need discipline and many of them aren't getting any and, in my opinion, that's the real problem.

Quite frankly I am impressed with how both boys are turning out considering their parent's marriage...all the media involvement etc.

So am I. It's a credit to a lot of people...Charles, Diana, the Royal nannies Barbara and Olga and Tiggy, the Queen and the DoE.

This is one case where it really did take a village to raise a child, or children.

Indeed. I think, at the end of the day, the boys were surrounded by enough people who loved them and cared about them that I think that really carried them through.

And, while I don't know William and Harry personally, I do know that some of the people I know who I consider to be among the most level-headed and well-balanced actually came from backgrounds that were considerably less than ideal (drama, instability, etc.). I think it's because some people learn to cope by being the calm in the middle of the storm around them. And, in that sense, I think it's very lucky that William and Harry have always had each other. When other things in their lives were intense and unpredictable, they knew they had each other, at the very least.

I think I remember reading that William also had a very competent, experienced housemaster during his time at Eton, (including around the time of his mother's death). I'm not a fan of boarding school for young children in general but I think, for these particular two boys, getting them away from home and into a school with plenty of stability and routine was probably the best thing that could have happened to them.

Several posts have been removed as off-topic as they had little to do with the topic of this thread, news about George and Charlotte.

Can we also please move on from the discussion on William, Diana, spanking and the childhood of the Wales boys and how they turned out. If you wish to discuss that, please do so in a more appropriate thread.

And since I know it's coming...To compare the interest *and more importantly* the pay check a photo of the Cambridge Children gets to that of Princess Estelle or Prince Christian or the Monaco Twins or any other European Royal Child is down right laughable. It's like comparing a seedling to a majestic full grown Maple Tree. These two are not like the rest of the Royal Children out there and never will be and due to that is why I think and believe a separate thread for those pictures that are being so divisive would be a perfect answer to the situation.

Prince George has proved once again how much of a style icon he is after the 85 outfit he wore to Princess Charlotte's christening sold out today.

The Prince was wearing a smocked set of red shorts and embroidered shirt by the British designer Rachel Riley, a favourite choice of the Duchess for her children's clothes.

This morning the company's website had sold out of the outfit in 12 month and 18 month sizes, though the good news if you're a new parent is that it is still available in three and six month baby sizes.

Since this is a Katie Nicholl story I'm posting it for purely entertainment purposes

What do you get for the princess with everything? Well, one good friend of the Cambridges seems to have the answer.

While Princess Charlotte has been lavished with gifts since her christening on Sunday, Royal Watch can reveal that there is one remarkable present waiting to be delivered to Kensington Palace: a rare hand oil painting of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, from one of the Cambridges’ friends.

The almost seven-foot-wide canvas has been privately commissioned by “someone very close to the family” and someone very generous—the painting is worth $200,000!

The gift is currently at the Homarge Gallery on London’s Walton Street, where it is bubble-wrapped and awaiting delivery to Kensington Palace.

Prince William: Charlotte is a "joy of Heaven", Prince George a "little monkey". ‘Catherine has been doing an amazing job as a mother and I'm very proud of her’.

Quote:
He said: "It's my first day and I'm feeling the nerves.

"We're starting off on a wet Cambridge day, but I'm really looking forward to getting started.

"It's been a lot of effort and patience in training but we're here now and I'm looking forward to doing the job."

Working as a co-pilot alongside a team of medics will be Prince William's main job, but his roster will take into account his royal duties.

I read that earlier today, and my heart melted. The man is happiest in his role as a father. I would bet money in that.

Prince George's second birthday, which will be celebrated next week, has been marked by a limited edition commemorative coin from the Royal Mint.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's toddler son's birthday is on July 22 and a sterling silver 5 coin has been struck to mark the event.

The coin bears a contemporary re-imagining of the St George and the dragon legend by artist Christopher Le Brun while the other side features the current portrait of the Queen by Jody Clark.

Sorry, I could not disagree more. Charlotte and George are beautiful Royal children who fill the hearts of their families and countrymen with pride.

But the exact same thing can be said for Princess Estelle, Prince Christian, the Monaco twins and all the rest of the European Royal children. George and Charlotte are indeed just like their peers.

George and Charlotte are not better or more special because of the popularity of the Cambridges and the demand for photos of them.

They are simply more famous.

Very well said. Just because the other royal children aren't faced with the same level of fame George and Charlotte are, it doesn't make them inferior to them somehow.
