Parents know the frustration of being out in public and having your young kiddo misbehave, forcing you to have to deal with disciplining them right there, but imagine having to do it with everyone in the world watching. As the Independent pointed out, that’s where Kate Middleton found herself over the weekend when her son, Prince Louis, was being a typical toddler during his grandmother, the Queen of England’s platinum jubilee celebrations.
The four-year-old was caught on camera making faces and sticking his tongue out at his mom while they attended events. During one of them, Prince Louis was on the balcony of Buckingham Palace standing next to the Queen as he screamed and playfully put his hands over his ears. At another event, he was spotted putting his hand over his mom’s mouth when she tried to talk to him.
And while some people have been critical about the young prince’s show-stealing behavior, one parenting expert is praising the way the Duchess of Cambridge dealt with it. The Supernanny herself, Jo Frost, commented on a clip posted to Instagram of the tot shaking his head and finger at his mom. “Love how mum is addressing in public Prince Louis needs to listen up and do as he’s told,” Frost writes. Her comment has received more than a thousand likes, with many others joining in to compliment Kate’s parenting. He did so well under the circumstances and she handled it brilliantly,” writes one fan.
