Kate Middleton & Prince William Just Used Their Signature Parenting Move During Their Latest Outing

As parents of three, Prince William and Kate Middleton have the whole talking to kids thing down pat. So when they visited the Evelina London Children’s Orthopaedic and Spinal Surgery unit, they relied on their signature parenting move to connect with the children.

Kensington Palace posted photos on Twitter of the 36-year-old Duke and Duchess of Cambridge bending down to make eye contact with their mini-well-wishers during the outing.

This is a move the couple has used time and time again with their own children, as well as with little guys and gals they meet during royal engagements. Just take a look at the fun Prince William is having with these kids.

By meeting children eye-to-eye, William and Kate aren’t asserting any dominance and are instead encouraging the children to communicate openly and freely.

Communication for the win.
