Kate Middleton wants her children to take up this useful hobby

It's a good idea.

They might be heir to the throne and living life very differently to us folk but, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge do try their best to raise Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis as “normal” as possible.

From attending school with other children to grocery shopping with their parents (who carpool when running errands), the Cambridges like to do things themselves and making sure their children have a well-rounded childhood is also very important to the pair.

And so, on Thursday while visiting the scouts’ headquarters in London, Kate learnt all about the impact the organisation has on young children from teaching them outdoor skills to team working and Kate expressed her interest for both George and Charlotte to join.

Speaking to People, teenager Lauren Noble who showed Kate around said:

“She said she would like them to go into the scouting community because she loves what it stands for — that it’s a very open and inclusive way into life. She said it would be a great thing for them to get involved in.”

Sounds like a good idea.

Kate was a brownie in her early days and so, knows all the benefits of similar organisations. She also reportedly said it would be a great place for her children to build relationships with others.

We can’t disagree with that.
