The Duchess of Cambridge doesn't want her kids Prince George and Princess Charlotte to grow up in a bubble. Kate Middleton and Prince William are very invested and play an active role in raising their children. A source told US Weekly that the royal babies "are living as normal lives as possible."

Middleton, 34, reportedly tries to take turns to drop off her 2 year old son at East Walton's Westacre Montessori School, where he attends three days a week. According to the source, Prince George cherishes the 10 mile trip and is disappointed when he doesn't have to go to school.

Prince George's 10-month-old sister Princess Charlotte is equally attached to her mom. The source added that she "shadows" Middleton around the house. "If Kate's cooking, Charlotte wants to be right next to her, watching her at work. She just prefers to be around her mum and can put on a bit of a performance if you try and make it any other way," the source added.

On a recent trip to Cardiff, Prince William described his daughter as "very sweet," according to a Mirror report. The Duke of Cambridge said that his children run around, push things and jump, just like most normal kids. He sounded relieved when he added that there have been no bones broken yet.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, who seem dedicated to their kids are not planning on adding another member to their family anytime soon. "Now that the reality of two very active kids has set in, they're quite happy to wait a little while longer!" US Weekly quoted the source as saying.

Earlier, the Duchess of Cambridge faced public ire when she backed out of presenting Irish Guards with the traditional shamrock on St. Patrick's Day Thursday. Middleton decided to break away from a 115-year-old tradition, so she could stay close to her children in Norfolk before the royal couple leaves on their visit to India and Bhutan in April.
