  • George was told he'll be King one day around the age of seven, but William still wants him to have a normal upbringing.

  • Kate is easing George into life in the public eye with subtle wardrobe cues.

  • When Prince George attended the Euros final at Wembley Stadium with his parents. William was "keen on the idea" of him wearing an England shirt, but Kate wanted him in a suit.

Kate Middleton and Prince William are all about giving their kids "normal" upbringings (not sure how "normal" life can be when you visit your grandma in a castle, but okay!), which makes casually informing Prince George that he's going to be King one day kinda tricky.

Per royal expert Duncan Larcombe, Kate is easing George into life in the public eye with subtle wardrobe cues. "George is only just beginning to understand his destiny, but Kate has got the journey planned," Duncan told OK!, via The Sun.

Example? When Prince George attended the Euros final at Wembley Stadium with his parents. William was "keen on the idea" of him wearing an England shirt, but Kate wanted him in a suit. "She was showing George that being ’on duty’ requires a different approach. He has to learn to don the royal armour."

Turns out George was told he'll be King one day around the age of seven, but William still wants him to have a normal upbringing. Robert Lacey confirmed as much in his book Battle of Brothers, saying "From George's earliest days, William made no secret of his wish to spare his firstborn the casual 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."

Obviously, George is third in line to the throne so it's going to be a minute until he's King. His grandfather Prince Charles is next in line, followed by his dad, Prince William.
