‘There’s a choice’: Duke and Duchess of Cambridge would let Prince George leave royal life, says child psychologist.
Prince George will have a choice in whether he becomes king or not.
George, who turns five on July 22, will be “brought up with a dialogue” about his birth right, says Kenny. Despite being third-in-line to the throne, Kenny believes he’ll be able to decide whether royal life is for him.
And that’s all thanks to his progressive parents, she says.
“I think [William and Kate] are the kind of parents that will say, ‘If this isn’t for you, then there’s a choice.’ And I genuinely believe that,” Kenny tells Kate Thornton, during episode three of ‘The Royal Box’.
“I’m sure he will do down the traditional route [and become king] but I do think they would never take away his autonomy,” Kenny continues.

“There has been a whole generation within the royals at this age, now, the younger generation, that’s born of autonomy and choice. And whilst some accept it, I don’t think that necessarily will be the case for ever. I think tradition has changed.”
