Kate Middleton May Be a ‘Smother Mother’ if Rumors About Her Parenting Are True

Awww! 14

kate middletonKate Middleton's talkative uncle, Gary Goldsmith (AKA "King of Fun"), was recently interviewed by UK's Grazia magazine, and naturally, all the questions and answers were centered around how the Duke and Duchess are faring as new parents and, duh, little Prince George. A lot of the interview is kind of boring and completely canned ("It's been a fairy tale right from the beginning!"), but there was one noteworthy tidbit Gary let slip: "William and Kate will be involved in everything George does."

Errything?

I seriously doubt William and Kate will be involved in every single thing their child, or children, do. Not because they're not awesome people who have become awesome parents who will always do awesome things. But because no parent should ever be involved in every single thing their kid does. That's weird.

What I think Uncle Gary meant was the Duke and Duchess will be involved with their children much more than the royal families of the past. "I don't think they will pass the responsibility of their babies to other people," Goldsmith said. And I agree. It doesn't seem that way at all.

From the get-go, William and Kate have exuded a more modern, less stuffy vibe than their predecessors, and no doubt, it seems like they'll be more hands-on with George than, say, Elizabeth was with Charles, or Charles was with William and Harry. They're breaking royal tradition -- in a good way. And it's damn cool to think that, because of them, Prince George will be closer with his kids someday. Nice work, guys.

Do you think William and Kate will be hands-on parents?

I strongly believe William learned a lot from his mother.

Naomi Verdugo

Really ?!?! Yes, just leave them alone! They will figure it out just like the rest of us did1

I think Diana has alot to do with the way William and Kate will raise their children. Diana taught Will alot about life; and I would think he would want to pass it along. Get the stuffiness out of the royals.

And yet again the headline has nothing to do with the actual story

no comment but you cant SMOTHER a new born baby.. or a young child. the smothering comes in later when they are older and you become too clingy to let go. a new born child needs their mother every waking moment. thats why MOST moms are stay at home moms, so they can take care of their children efficiently and be there when they are needed. i think shes going to be a great mother. soooo she loves her son and wishes to be with him as much as possible... big whoop! we have all been there a time or 2.. or 3.

Have you all figured it out yet? The Stir will say anything to get their visitor count to go up? I'm done with this nonsense..

I think they will be. But I also can't understand why someone would not want to be a hands on parent.... babies are such a joy!

The sooner William leaves her the better she is a Diana clone and was practically a stalker before she got her hooves into him
