Instead of shouting at their children or using the classic “naughty step”, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge encourage their children to talk about what’s causing them to behave badly. The Cambridges reportedly have a “chat sofa” in their household, and here’s how it works.
A source told Fabulous: “There’s no ’naughty step’ but there is a ‘chat sofa’.
“The naughty child is taken away from the scene of the row or disruption and talked to calmly by either Kate or William.
“Things are explained and consequences outlined and they never shout at them.
“Shouting is absolutely ‘off limits’ for the children and any hint of shouting at each other is dealt with by removal.”
The insider also revealed who the stricter parent is.
The insider told the publication that Kate is “slightly stricter” than Prince William.
They added that the royal couple’s Norland-trained nanny, Maria Borrallo, makes all decisions in agreement with the duke and duchess.
The source added: “Maria is firm but she never acts unilaterally with the children on discipline.

A member revealed to Fabulous that the Cambridge children always behave “impeccably” during any visits.
They said: “The family often dine there al fresco and use the club’s sporting and play facilities.
“There is no tantrums or food throwing and the children eat what is set before them.
“They queue up with the rest of the kids and parents in the Harness Room restaurant and ask for no special favours.”
Prince William recently revealed what the hardest part of being a parent is.
The Duke of Cambridge admitted that dinner time is the biggest challenge.
Speaking on Zoom to community chef Charlie Farrally from the Scottish charity Peek Project, he said the success of his family meal “depends on what’s on the table”.
He continued: “If parents put something on that children love, dinner time goes on very well.
“But if you put something on the table they don’t want to do, that’s another ball game.”
Prince William was recently pictured alongside his three children in two snaps released by the Duchess of Cambridge on Father’s Day.
Kate took a picture of George, six, Charlotte, five, and Louis, two, on a swing with William just before he celebrated his 38th birthday.
In another heart-warming snap, the children clambered over the Duke’s back in the garden at their Norfolk home.
