He is known to be a royal pain.
Kate Middleton can be hailed as a super mom while juggling three children and being a member of the royal family.
However, the 41-year-old Princess of Wales has another child on her hands if you count her husband, Prince William.
According to royal expert Tom Quinn, Middleton treats William, 40, “like a fourth child” because of his penchant for throwing tantrums.
The ‘Gilded Youth’ author recently told Express.co.uk that the Duke of Cambridge was “prone to tantrums”, a source close to Quinn told Kensington Palace.
He added that the golden couple from the royal family often had “quarrels” and that their marriage was “not perfect”.
During these savage fights, William and Kate are known to “throw cushions” at each other, but their arguments are otherwise “always subdued.”
The relationship between William and his wife seems perfectly satisfying from a public perspective, and the couple’s marital bliss can be summed up by the late Queen Elizabeth’s “never complain, never explain” motto, Quinn said.
“Because William adopts his grandmother’s manners and ways of behaving and Kate is so good at not complaining, both have embraced what made Queen Elizabeth II such a remarkable monarch,” did he declare.
The expert continued: “They very rarely complain and when they do, it’s always in measured terms.”
The Post has contacted Kensington Palace for comment.
Last month, William was caught gushing over Middleton during a sweet moment while visiting Birmingham, England.
As the couple met onlookers at the Rectory restaurant, where the Duke of Cambridge praised his longtime wife. As he shook hands and greeted fans, one person said to him, “What an amazing outfit Kate has! It’s beautiful!”
To which William warmly replied, “Oh, she still looks gorgeous!”
In a recently resurfaced podcast interview, the father-of-three confessed he gave Middleton a horrifying gift when they started dating in the early 2000s.
‘I gave my wife a pair of binoculars once – she never let me forget that,’ he jokingly admitted during a 2020 appearance on the Peter Crouch podcast on BBC Radio Five Lives.
“It was early in the courtship which was – I think that sealed the deal,” he continued.
The couple tied the knot in April 2011 after nearly a decade of dating. They share a daughter, Princess Charlotte, as well as sons, Prince Louis and Prince George.
