The current generation brings up the children not as their mothers and grandmothers did. Everything is being transformed, including motherhood.
This can be seen even observing how have the methods of education in the British Royal family changed.
If Queen Elizabeth II adhered to the same beliefs, the Duchess of Cambridge went the other way and even condemned the centuries-old foundations of the court.
Now we will compare two different generations and make sure that nothing lasts forever. Perhaps, it’s even better.
The Queen gave birth in her Palace, Middleton went to the hospital, where, by the way, her husband and son-in-law were born.
Prince William, unlike his grandfather, was present at the birth and cut the umbilical cord of son George.
Elizabeth II became a mother at the age of 23, Kate, - 32. The Duchess decided not to delay and gave birth to a second child 2 years after the first pregnancy.
For the Queen it was a bit different. The difference in age between the second and third child of Elizabeth was 10 years, but the third and fourth – four years.
The Queen could leave young children at home and move permanently to another country.
She wasn't worried about the little ones, the nannies were taking care of them.
On the contrary, Kate wants to spend more time with the kids, so she takes them everywhere with her.
Elizabeth II acted cold and distant with her children, - the same way her parents acted with her.
Middleton is not burdened by strict etiquette as the Queen is, so she may chastise children in public, she shows her affection and love and the public adores her for that.
The Queen did not allow the children to go out in casual clothes, - only in official ones.
Middleton believes that the child can wear less formal clothes. Fortunately, the tradition of dressing boys in dresses until the age of 8 came to naught.
The son and daughter of the Duchess study with their classmates in kindergarten from an early age. Children of Elizabeth were educated at home up to 9 years.
Unlike the monarch, the Duchess prefers to raise her children herself, and not to have many nurses.
supports modern moms who leave their kids with other people in case of necessity.
