Duchess Kate is reportedly running a tight ship while quarantining with her three children at their Anmer Hall home.
According to Vanity Fair‘s royal reporter, Katie Nicholl, the Duchess of Cambridge has “strict” rules when it comes to her children’s screen time and prefers for them to spend the bulk of their time outdoors when they can.
“Kate is usually very strict on screen time and keeps it to a minimum,” Nicholl told OK! magazine. “The emphasis during this time will be on arts and crafts, painting and doing things that aren’t screen-orientated.”

According to Nicholl, Prince Louis loves playing around in nature the most with his mom and siblings, and the children are encouraged to roam around with their swings, climbing frames, and even keep their own designated patches of the kitchen garden. Duchess Kate has been vocal about her love for the outdoors and how she cherishes the time she gets to spend with her family in nature.
“I believe that spending time outdoors when we are young can play a role in laying the foundations for children to become happy, healthy adults,” the duchess wrote in a letter last year, after helping to design and create a Back to Nature garden that encourages families to spend time together outside.
Since going into self-quarantine at their country house last month, Kate and her husband, Prince William, have continued to work from home, much like the rest of the world. Both the duke and duchess participated in a video call to thank teachers who were taking care of the children of emergency first responders last week, while both William and his father, Prince Charles, have helped virtually open emergency field hospitals across England.
