Prince George scared of cameras and resentful of the press, royal expert tells 'The Royal Box'
According to a royal expert, five-year-old Prince George already resents the press because their privacy, as a family, is constantly being invaded.
Prince William and his wife Kate Middleton do their best to raise their three children as normal as possible. They try to maintain a low-key lifestyle even though they are royals.
Although, despite their efforts, staying away from the press seems to be such an impossible task.
As members of the royal family, they are always tailed by the paparazzi.

A royal historian, Kate Williams, spoke with Yahoo! UK on a segment called The Royal Box.
She said Prince George, as young as he is now, already resents the press and is supposedly scared of the cameras.
"Their privacy is invaded and it really is a problem," she said.
For the paparazzi, taking a photo of Prince George and Princess Charlotte, 3, can easily get them almost $40,000 if they sell them to magazines and other news outlets.
As a result, the little royals are constantly being chased by photographers everywhere they go.
Williams said, "Already you can see in George, a little bit of uncertainty and a small bit of resentment towards all the cameras."
When Prince Louis was born in April 2018, Prince William took Prince George and Princess Charlotte to the hospital to see their little brother for the first time.
Upon arrival, the Royals were already bombarded with a number of flashing lenses.
Williams was part of the press at the time. She said, "I think [George] did look a bit scared of the cameras."

She explained that it would be more difficult for Prince George when he gets older. Williams claimed that the young prince does not completely understand it now, but added that “when he’s 12, 13, he will.”
It seems that Williams may be right that Prince George may not fully understand how important he is as a public figure. Reports revealed that he does not have a clue that he is the third in line to the British throne.
