Kate Middleton has already begun to prepare Prince George for his 'destiny' as King of Britain, a royal expert has revealed.
- Kate Middleton is on a mission to prepare Prince George to become King, a royal insider has revealed.
- The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's eldest child is already being taught important lessons on royal service, including how to dress appropriately at public engagements.
- In other royal news, Kate Middleton 'rolled her eyes' at Meghan Markle's show Suits as friends say Kate is '150 percent more reserved than William'.
Prince George may only be eight years old, but his future job is already well-planned out for him—and it requires serious training.
The eldest child of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will one day succeed the throne and become the 64th monarch of Britain. Like his father, Prince William, who was personally trained to be King by the Queen from the age of 13, George will undergo rigorous lessons ahead of inheriting the lofty role.
It's reported that he was first informed of his "destiny" at the tender age of 7 and is now being taught the ropes of public service by his doting parents. Surprisingly, it's Kate Middleton—who dropped her commoner status when she married Prince William in 2011—who's most invested in her son's royal schooling.
“George is only just beginning to understand his destiny, but Kate has got the journey planned," Duncan Larcombe told OK! magazine. "That really struck me after seeing George in his first grown-up suit with his parents at the Euros final in July."
It's no secret that royal fans were left baffled by Prince George's Euros 2020 outfit, which consisted of a navy suit, a white shirt, and a striped tie. Many shunned the formal attire, insisting that the young football fan should have been allowed to dress down with a national jersey instead.
"People were asking why they hadn’t let him wear an England shirt ‘like a normal eight-year-old’," said Duncan. “William was apparently keen on the idea, but it was Kate, the former commoner, who said no. She was showing George that being ’on duty’ requires a different approach… he has to learn to don the royal armor."
Unlike royal children of the past, though, George wasn't required to stifle his emotions in public. Duncan adds that Kate ensures the eight-year-old knows how to show "his personality", and even "encouraged him to leap up and celebrate England scoring, to roar and wave and hug his mum and dad like any normal lad. And even to shed a tear when it all ended in heartbreak."
Sounds like solid parenting to us!
