Royals unplugged. After Prince William and Kate Middleton's recent royal tour with the kids, insiders are coming forth to talk about what life with the famous family is really like. According to Us Weekly, at least. From the sound of things, the duke and duchess want their kids to have as normal as possible childhoods -- and this, apparently, means banning George and Charlotte from using iPads

According to Us's sources, William and Kate, like most parents, would much rather see their children playing and running around outside than staring at a screen. "iPads are very much seen as Mummy and Daddy's toys, not for children," an insider revealed to the mag. "As two people who grew up without gadgets for entertainment themselves, William and Kate are firm believers in toys, outdoor play, and encouraging an active imagination. They're very much a normal family."

Or, you know, normalish

Evidently, Prince George is getting to the point where he's starting to realize he's not exactly an average child, as well. "He's at an age where he's starting to realize that the world he lives in is different to his friends," a royal insider noted, adding that the prince is growing up to be a "very confident young boy."

Also, while Prince George loves playing with "anything on wheels," Charlotte is huge fan of Disney princesses right now -- oh, the irony! "I don't think it's quite dawned on her that she's a princess herself," a family friend remarked. 

Like any child, Prince George has his moments, but from the sound of things, William and Kate are doing a pretty fantastic job keeping their children as grounded as possible. Though, for the record, observant little George may start asking why his friends get to use iPads and he can't.
