His grandfather is king, his father heir to the throne and Prince George himself will one day be the head of the British crown. Although his parents do not want to burden the nine-year-old with too much responsibility, he is apparently very secure in his position.
Prince George apparently knows exactly his position - and that of his father. The nine-year-old is said to have warned a classmate who apparently annoyed him. The eldest son of Prince William and Princess Kate reportedly told his school friend: "My dad is going to be king so you better watch out!" At least that's what Royal expert Katie Nicholl claims.
Prince William and Princess Kate raise their children, particularly Prince George, according to the book, with an awareness of "who he is and the role he will take on," but they don't want to burden their offspring with too much sense of duty. Princess Kate would also have a role model, according to Nicholl: the Wessexes. She is said to admire William's uncle, Prince Edward, and his wife Sophie for how they manage to give their children a quiet life, even though Edward and Sophie are an important part of the royal family. The couple have children Louise Mountbatten-Windsor, aged 18, and James, Viscount Severn, 14.
In the book "Battle of Brothers," author Robert Lacey previously claimed that Prince William and Princess Kate told Prince George "sometime around his seventh birthday" about his future role as King of England.
