Peter Andre has opened up about his disagreements with wife Emily over sharing images of their children online.
‘Prince William and Kate post pictures of George and Charlotte all the time, and they’re the most beautiful pictures ever,’ he said.
‘It just makes you fall in love with little George and you can’t wait for him to be king one day. Obviously they’re royalty, but I’m thinking, if it’s good enough for royalty, it’s good enough for anybody!’
‘But there are some parents that don’t want to do it and you’ve got to respect that as well. Emily’s one of those parents that doesn’t want it so I’ve got to respect that.’
Peter has not abstained totally from uploading photos of the pair, adding that he still ‘gets away’ with things where you can’t really see their faces, but still wishes he could show them off to the world in more detail.
‘Milly’s and Theo, they’re just so cute,’ he said. ‘See, I post photos of them because I’m proud of them and of these beautiful moments, and you want to show everyone just like 99% of the world does on Facebook – they put pictures on of their kids because they’re proud of them.’
In February this year, Peter admitted that he was ‘in trouble’ with wife for posting a video of their two young children on social media..
‘I got in trouble with the missus for posting a video of Mills and Theo and I chilling out on the sofa on social media last week,’ the father of four explained.
‘Even though it was a quick vid, I was in the doghouse for a bit because Ems isn’t so keen on him and Amelia being on social media.’
‘I get excited, what can I do? Give a man a break!’ he exclaimed.
However, he takes a different approach with elder son and daughter Junior, 12, and Princess, 10, from his previous marriage to Katie Price.
Both parents post frequent images of the siblings, and they have even been given their own Instagram accounts in the past – although Peter did express his concerns about the youngsters having control of their own social media feeds.

‘Everyone knows I don’t allow them to have phones or social media at my house, but I guess it doesn’t necessarily mean to say I’m right,’ he stated at the time.
‘I don’t like kids having them because I think it opens them up to all sorts of issues, but as a parent you have to compromise with the other parent and try to work together.’
