Kate Middleton, 39, is known for having her three children – Prince George, eight, Princess Charlotte, six, and Prince Louis, three – as hands-on parents. However, a family friend has revealed that the Duchess of Cambridge enjoys some alone time after the children have gone to sleep.
A family friend told People: “William will bring Kate a gin and tonic.
“They care for each other, but in different ways.”
The Cambridge children are known for following a ‘strict’ evening routine.
When asked why the three children are rarely seen at evening engagements, royal expert Duncan Larcombe explained that the young royals usually follow a bedtime routine.

“But as parents, Wills and Kate have developed this brilliant ability to make as much as possible seem spontaneous, and that’s how the kids see it.”
The three children are encouraged to be creative and Kate is said to encourage the two eldest to “write diaries, sketch, photograph and paint”.
Kate is “more and more impressive as time goes on,” praised a source.
They continued, “She is a focused and professional woman.”
Although the Cambridges have their own private chef, the kids cause trouble in the kitchen while preparing meals for the family.
Kate revealed in 2018 that while cooking at St. Luke’s Community Center, the kids even enjoy making pizza.
The Duchess said the young royals love making pizza dough “because they can get their hands messy”.
While Kate’s children love to cook the main course, the Duchess has said she enjoys baking and making her favorite desserts herself.
