Kate Middleton & Prince William Arrive in Pakistan for Royal Tour & Kate Immediately Goes into Parenting Mode

When it comes to chatting with children, Kate Middleton is getting more and more predictable. In fact, the Duchess of Cambridge, 37, performed her go-to parenting move upon arrival in Pakistan for the royal tour.

Earlier today, Middleton kicked off the trip with a visit to the Kur Khan air base alongside her husband, Prince William. While there, the duchess chatted with well-wishers and even bent down for two young children, who gave her flowers.

Middleton bent her knees, so she could make direct eye contact with the kids, who were elated to speak with her.

The Duchess of Cambridge has used this technique for years while out and about on official royal business. It’s supposed to minimize dominance over the child and encourages them to communicate openly.

In fact, she even utilizes the parenting hack when speaking with her own children, Prince George (6), Princess Charlotte (4) and Prince Louis (1).

The royal tour of Pakistan will take place from October 14 to October 18. The trip was requested by Britain’s Foreign and Commonwealth Office and will follow in the footsteps of previous Pakistan tours carried out by Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles in 2006, Princess Diana in 1996 and Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip in both 1961 and 1997.
