Kate Middleton struggled with parenting Prince George alone without a nanny.

She confided in Queen Elizabeth II for advice.

Kate and William wanted to be hands-on parents.

They eventually hired a nanny in September.

Kate's mother, Carole Middleton, played a big role in helping with the upbringing of their children.

Carole is present during bedtime and bath time.

She also helped when Kate was ill with extreme morning sickness.

The Middletons' involvement allows the couple to live a more ordinary life.

Kate sought advice from the Queen, while Carole Middleton played a crucial role in the upbringing of her grandchildren.
