Royal author Duncan Larcombe revealed in the ITV documentary, Secrets of the Royal Babies: Meghan and Harry, how Diana strived to give her sons a “normal and private life.” Mr Larcombe said: “Diana made sure William and Harry lived as much as a normal life as possible and as parents William and Harry will always be influenced by their mother.

“Her desire to give them a taste of normality runs through the veins of William and Harry.

“Harry tends to follow in his brother’s footsteps and weirdly William tends to follow in Harry’s footsteps.

“They are mentors to each other.

“So I would expect when Harry becomes a dad he will look at Kate and William’s example and follow that almost to the letter.”

Speaking to ABC News, Diana’s chief of staff, Patrick Jephson, revealed the experiences Diana wanted her sons to have as children.

He said: “She made sure that they experienced things like going to the cinema, queuing up to buy a Mcdonald’s, going to amusement parks, those sorts of things that were experiences that they could share with their friends.”

Diana’s ideals reflect upon her sons’ with Prince William being very protective of his children’ privacy.

The Duke of Cambridge and his wife, Kate Middleton, ensure their children stay away from paparazzi and are only photographed at engagements and royal events.

The Duchess, a keen photographer herself, even likes to provide press with the pictures she takes of her two sons and daughter.

Royal expert Ingrid Seward addressed the Cambridges’ parenting style, highlighting William’s initiative when it comes to raising his kids.

She said: “Prince William famously changed nappies and got up in the night to do feeds, school pick-up and bath time/ tea time.”

But when it comes to Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis’ education, William and Kate opted for tradition.

The Duke and the Duchess rely on Norland nanny Maria Borrallo to look after the children and help with their royal education.

Ms Borrallo was born in Madrid and educated in Norland College in Bath, one of the most prestigious when it comes to nanny training.

Norland expert and Nanny in a Book author, Louise Heren, explained why Ms Bordallo is one of the best nannies in the country.

She told The Sun: “There will be no messing. That’s because Maria will be aware that as they step off planes, holding mum’s hands, smiling and waving to the crowds, there can’t be any crying or terrible twos or tantrums.

“There will be lots and lots of outdoor play, that’s the one thing you could say Norland are old-fashioned about. Loads of fresh air. Lots of bike rides, playing with their dogs, potentially some gardening.

“Norland are very into teaching children through play. Yes, you are getting mucky with your hands in the soil but you are learning how to plant.

“If it is tipping it down, they will still go out. Wet weather is just inappropriate clothing, you have to put the right stuff on.

“It doesn’t have to be strict. Just because Norland Nannies wear the brown uniform, they look quite old-fashioned, that doesn’t mean their message is old-fashioned. It’s no nonsense.”
