William and Kate are the proud parents of Prince George, nine, Princess Charlotte, seven, and Prince Louis, four.
Harry and Meghan have two little ones, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, three, and Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor, one.
Both sets of parents have very different circumstances, with Will and Kate’s family residing in Windsor and Harry and Meghan’s living in California.
However, both have brought their children up under extreme public scrutiny and interest, under the royal spotlight.

According to Niki, both sets of parents have one major thing in common.
She told Express.co.uk: “Both couples appear to prioritise hands-on parenting and a normal upbringing for their children.
“Both have also demonstrated a commitment to children’s health and wellbeing.”
Niki said that Harry reportedly “takes on a larger role in caring for Archie than is traditional for royal fathers”.
She continued: “Like Meghan and Harry, Kate and William have taken a hands-on approach to parenting, with both parents reportedly involved in caring for their children and making an effort to give them as normal an upbringing as possible.
“Kate has also been praised for her efforts to promote children’s mental health, including through her work as a patron of the charity Place2Be.
The organisation is committed to helping children with their mental health in schools.
Both Kate and William and Meghan and Harry have spoken candidly about parenthood.
When the Duke and Duchess of Sussex first introduced baby Archie to the world in 2019, Meghan described being a new mum as “magic”.

She added that it’s “pretty amazing” and that she has “the two best guys in the world so “I’m really happy”.
In an ITV documentary, she touched upon the challenges pregnant women and new mums face, as she admitted she hasn’t been okay.
In lighter circumstances, her eyes lit up when she spoke to Variety about Archie’s favourite TV shows, including “throwback” The Magic School Bus.
Kate and William have similarly spoken about the trials and tribulations of parenting their three little ones.
The royal duo are constantly papped with their three under 10s, laughing and joking at sporting events, holding hands on walks and even wearing the occasional matching outfit.
Kate once revealed she tried to help Princess Charlotte learn a key skill for school – but it didn’t quite go to plan.
Praising a little girl’s plaits on a visit to Cumbria in 2019, Kate stated: “I tried to do a plait with Charlotte this morning, it didn’t really work very well.”
On Time To Walk podcast, Prince William shared that mornings in the royal household are not always plain sailing, with George and Charlotte often having a “massive” fight about what music to listen to.
While both sets of royal parents do seem to share a love of hands-on parenting, Niki noted that “every family is different and parenting styles can vary greatly, even in the same family”.
“It is also important to consider that the media focuses on and exaggerates certain aspects of public figures’ lives, and it is difficult to know the full extent of Meghan and Harry or Kate and William’s parenting styles based on media reports alone.”
