This is the one toy that Kate Middleton has banned from her home

Kate Middleton just proved that while she’s royalty, she’s also a mom. And as a mom, there are certain toys that Middleton disapproves of for her two young children, Charlotte and George. But after hearing about what playtime is like for the family, we’re sure the two aren’t necessarily missing out.

People are more interested in the royals than ever due to the upcoming HBO and ITV documentary Diana, Our Mother: Her Life and Legacy. In the movie, Prince William reflects on what kind of grandmother his mom would be. As we expected, he thinks she would have been pretty interactive.

"She’d come in probably at bath time, cause an amazing...scene, bubbles everywhere, bathwater all over the place, and then leave," he said.

But, Diana probably wouldn’t be expected to navigate an iPad, because as per Middleton’s rules, they’re allegedly forbidden.

In fact, US Weekly recently reported that those close to the couple say that the pair try really hard to make sure the children have an unplugged childhood full of creativity and outdoor play.

"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," US Weekly stated.

We can see this being true. One of the reasons why we love the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge is the fact that while they live such intriguing and beautiful lives, they always seem down to earth and focused on the important things. And expanding on physical activity and imagination? Definitely important. We’d love to hear more about Middleton’s best mom-tips in the future.
