The Prince and Princess of Wales certainly have their hands full balancing their senior royal duties and parenting Prince George, nine, Princess Charlotte, seven, and little Prince Louis, four. 

Somehow, Prince William and Princess Kate always manage to keep their composure in public, even when their young children act up in the royal spotlight. Memorably, Prince Louis dominated headlines with his cheeky behaviour and playful antics at the late Queen Elizabeth II's Platinum Jubilee Party at the Palace last summer, but unseen footage reveals the Prince of Wales' "level-headed" technique to calming his over-excited royal tot.

 The clip, showing a close-up look at the father-of-three's calm negotiation with his four-year-old son re-emerged on Instagram this week, and royal fans couldn't help but gush over Prince William's parenting. 

"I like the way he is with his kids. He is not taking a backseat and it's obvious in how he relates with them," said one IG user, as another wrote: "So patient and caring. It seems that they reached an agreement."

 "He just seems to be so level headed and kind. A good man" added another, while a fourth penned: "William and Kate always talk to the kids at eye level."

Jo Frost, most famously known as Supernanny, shared her professional opinion on Prince Louis' memorable behaviour over the Jubilee weekend - praising the way the Prince and Princess of Wales handled the situation. 

"All that sitting, watching and organisation, most children can't sit in their chairs at a dining table for longer than 15 mins. It certainly must have been beautifully overwhelming for this little chap, especially with no playtime in between and long days, children are going to test, one should expect as such," explained the parenting expert.

"I'm more impressed with how the Prince and Princess of Wales continue to be such impressive parenting role models to our modern parents today, they are open about their own struggles as parents and like all parents out there continue to strive to do their very best in raising their young," Jo added.
