Prince George will one day reign over England as its king and sole monarch. According to a source, the little boy already knows what his future role will be.


A source who spoke to “Us Weekly” last year revealed: “George is aware that one day he’ll be the King of England.” The insider shared that Prince William, George’s father, had already informed him about his future role.

The informant also revealed how George, who is celebrating his 8th birthday, loved “learning about his family in history classes.” William, 39, was said to be taking it easy with how he educates the boy about his future position.

The father of three made sure not to overwhelm the child with “too much information.” However, George was said to be “aware that there’s a lot more to being king” than how the role was portrayed “in Disney movies and children’s books.”

Even though their children are royalty, William and his wife, Duchess Kate, 39, want them to be humble and “grounded.” The couple also shares Princess Charlotte, 6, and Prince Louis, 3.



The children are allegedly aware that “there’s something special about them,” however, “they’re not spoiled.” In the past, George has been described as “kind-natured and thoughtful.”

He’s said to be an older sibling who “looks out for his brother and sister.” With these traits, he’s bound to make a great leader one day as he’s third in line for the role after his grandfather, Prince Charles, and William, respectively.

Reportedly, Prince George "likes to be the best at everything." He knows how important it is to be competitive, and that shows he's going to become a high-achiever.



For his 7th birthday on July 22, 2020, the future king was celebrated with “a small camping-themed BBQ party.” Another source shared how the boy’s father arranged some tents in their garden for the special occasion.

William and Kate also surprised him with a yurt as his birthday gift. From his younger siblings, George was gifted with a new bicycle. In honor of his birthday, two new portraits were released of the little boy.



William and Kate’s children never had a chance to meet their paternal grandmother, Princess Diana, because of her sudden death in 1997.

Julia Samuel, George’s godmother, has made sure to keep Diana’s spirit alive for him. She buys “noisy” and “impossible toys” for the boy as the People’s Princess once did for her friends' kids.



On July 11, 2021, Prince George was spotted with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge at the Euro 2020 final. George looked adorable, wearing a navy-blue suit that matched with his father.

The three of them were supporting England in the final match held at Wembley Stadium. After England's defeat, the family posted on their Instagram page about how sad they felt. The caption read:

"Heartbreaking. Congratulations @Azzurri on a great victory. @England, you’ve all come so far, but sadly this time it wasn’t our day. You can all hold your heads high, and be so proud of yourselves — I know there’s more to come. W"



Prince George is celebrating his 8th birthday this year, but there's something disappointing for the fans. It is said that Prince William and Kate Middleton are planning not to release their son's birthday photos on the internet.

They have decided to do so because of the endless trolling happening these days. They don't want people to pass rude comments about Prince George's appearance.
