Prince George ‘starting to understand destiny’ thanks to Kate Middleton – expert

Prince George is "starting to understand his destiny" thanks to his mum Kate Middleton, a royal expert has claimed.

Kate and Prince Middleton have tried to give eldest child George a "normal upbringing" but he has started to realise that he will one day be king.

Speaking to OK! magazine, Duncan Larcombe claimed the Duchess of Cambridge is helping to ease her eldest son into life in the public eye – and it's all starting with his wardrobe.

The expert said: "George is only just beginning to understand his destiny, but Kate has got the journey planned."

Last summer, Prince George attended the Euro 2020 final at Wembley Stadium with his mum and dad.

And while Prince William was apparently "keen on the idea" of his son wearing an England shirt, it was Kate who insisted the young prince wear a suit for the occasion.

Duncan said: "She was showing George that being 'on duty' requires a different approach. He has to learn to don the royal armour."

But just because he looked smart for the match, Prince George still expressed his every emotion during the nail-biting match between England and Italy.

The expert added: "George was encouraged 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."

In February 2020, it was claimed that Prince William and Kate Middleton had explained George's destiny to him like it was from a "storybook".

Speaking to Closer, the source said: "William and Kate have already talked to George and Charlotte about their future roles, but in a childlike way so that they understand without feeling overwhelmed.

"George knows there's something special about him and that one day he'll be the future King of England."

It has also been reported that the royal couple waited until George was seven years old to inform him that he'd one day be King.

In his book Battle of Brothers, author Robert Lacey claimed William insisted there was a "time and place" to tell George about where he "fits in the world".

He wrote: "From George's earliest days, William made no secret of his wish to spare his firstborn the initiation – or non-initiation – that he felt he had suffered as a child.

"William's aim as a father, the prince stressed, was to give his son a 'normal family upbringing' enabling the monarchy to 'stay relevant and keep up with modern times'."
