Prince William breaks with Charles and Diana tradition to ease Prince George into new role


PRINCE WILLIAM has gone a “completely different way” to his parents and sought to “protect” his children from the spotlight for as long as possible, a royal expert has said.

Mr Kay said: “I think William has curated George’s appearance in a completely different way to the way his mother and father curated his.

“I mean, William and Harry, and particularly William, were thrust from a very early age into the centre stage.

“William has taken a different view. He wants to protect them from the spotlight for as long as possible and give them some semblance of a normal childhood.

“But, inevitably, as he gets older, we are going to see more of him in a jacket and tie, at Wimbledon, as we did, and at Platinum Jubilee type celebrations.”

Prince George, 9, and his father are rumoured to share a close bond as the second and third in line to the throne.

The young prince is said to refer to his father as ‘Pops’, something which he has elected to do from at least the age of five.

And it has been reported that while Prince George has been protected from the limelight during his younger years, Prince William has already begun teaching his son about royal life and preparing him for his future as king.

Prince George has also allegedly shown a keen interest in his father’s charity work, endeavouring to sell cakes during the pandemic in aid of the charity Tusk, which works to protect endangered species in Africa, a cause his father has long supported.

They were all on the balcony for the opening Trooping the Colour ceremony on the first day of the four-day celebrations.

And they were later seen waving to the thousands of people gathered at Buckingham Palace from a carriage as they drove away.

Multiple videos and pictures emerged throughout the extended weekend of the three children, including Princess Charlotte directing an orchestra in Cardiff.

It is believed the family will move during this summer break to Adelaide Cottage on the monarch’s expansive estate.

All three children are expected to start school together in September, away from the attention and paparazzi of London.

Reports have also suggested that proximity to the Queen was a key draw for the family, who wanted to spend as much time with the monarch during the twilight of her reign.
