You might think that being members of the royal family makes Kate Middleton and Prince William's three children immune from toddler tantrums, but that's certainly not the case. In her most recent interview, the Duchess of Cambridge has revealed that she too has to deal with the odd outburst.
In a video posted to the Kensington Royal Instagram page on November 28, the royal thanked those who had participated in the "5 Big Questions On The Under Fives"—a research survey into early childhood development—and even answered some questions about her involvement in the project, as well as her personal experiences as a mother-of-three.
When asked “how do you manage toddler tantrums in your household? Especially with multiple children,” Kate had the most relatable response.
She sighed, laughed, and replied: “Yes, that's a hard one. I'd also like to ask the experts myself.”
According to the experts, the best way to deal with a toddler tantrum is to calmy and gently put into words how the child might be feeling—which we're sure Kate has become quite the expert in.

The Duchess of Cambridge is no stranger to an unexpected tantrum. In July 2017, when Princess Charlotte was just two-years-old (yes, the terrible twos), the young royal had a mini-meltdown while touring an Airbus facility in Germany.
Crouching down at Charlotte's eye-level, Kate spoke to her daughter for a moment before picking her up—a move that was widely praised by royal fans around the world.
During the recent Q&A, Kate also shared why she has taken a special interest in early childhood and families with young children.
"I think people assume that because I am a parent, that's why I've taken an interest in the Early Years. I think this really is bigger than that. This isn’t just about happy, healthy children. This is about the society I hope we could and can become. Right from the early days, meeting lots of people who are suffering with addiction or poor mental health and hearing time and time again that their troubles now in adulthood stem right back from early childhood experience," she said.
