Prince George is, without a doubt, being raised like a normal kid. As a matter of fact, not only is he obsessed with playing soccer as he also loves hunting for insects in the garden with Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.
Despite being a happy-go-lucky kid, Prince George is slowly learning that his future would not look like other children of his age. There were even reports claiming that Prince William and Kate Middleton already informed on his birthday that he would be king one day.
Recently, it was claimed that Queen Elizabeth has not started training Prince George to be sovereign. Keep on reading to know more details.
Queen Elizabeth Reportedly Readies Prince George To Be King
Woman's Day Australia, in its October 11 issue, reported Buckingham Palace sources divulged that Queen Elizabeth has begun preparing Prince George as the future King George VI. The unnamed insiders claimed that Her Majesty has been "taking private audiences" with Prince William and Kate Middleton's firstborn. The tipster said:
"George is a bright child and has long seemed aware that he's treated differently from the other kids at school, no matter how much his parents have encouraged a normal life. But, he's surrounded with so much love and support from his parents, grandparents and especially his ‘Gan-Gan' [his nickname for the Queen], that it really feels like he's being set up for great success."
The entertainment news outlet furthered that Queen Elizabeth insisted on spending more time with Prince George than she ever did with Prince William and Prince Charles at his age. The same unidentified informant stated:
"The Queen waited until William was 13 and at Eton before she invited him over for tea and private audiences with her on weekends, where she began coaching him about wht's expected of him one day. But, at 95 years old, with George, she doesn't feel like she has the luxury of waiting for him to senior school."
The source also told Woman's Day Australia that Queen Elizabeth is taking a soft approach with Prince George. Her Majesty has, reportedly, been showing her great-grandson movies of her when she became Queen and encouraging the young royal to follow in the footsteps of Prince William. The insider added:
"George is a character and it's rather obvious he thinks some of it is a terrible bore, but he was raised to have great respect for his granny and takes it all in his stride. William and Catherine are very proud."
The tipster, according to the entertainment publication, claimed Queen Elizabeth told Prince William and Kate Middleton that her door is always open should they have questions or other concerns on raising Prince George. It added that Her Majesty is anxious that George would commit the mistakes Prince Andrew, Prince Harry, and Prince Charles made in the past, which is why she is so motivated to train George.
While it would not come as a surprise if Queen Elizabeth spends some time in coaching Prince George as the future monarch, it is important to note that Her Majesty has not yet confirmed any of these claims. So, avid followers of the royal family should take all these unverified reports lightly until everything is proven true and correct.
Queen Elizabeth Feared To Damage Her Image By Allowing Prince Andrew To Hide
Meanwhile, Katie Nicholl claimed, as per Nicki Swift, that Queen Elizabeth is facing a massive threat for her decision to let Prince Andrew hide. The well-known royal correspondent made the fearless claim during an interview with True Royalty TV's The Royal Beat.
Katie said the decision of Queen Elizabeth to "publicly support Andrew" is damaging her image, especially in the United States. The royal correspondent said:
"Andrew hasn't got any… accessible money. They've just had to sell their chalet in Verbier - there was a massive mortgage. I don't think there's the money you would associate with a dukedom.[The Queen] is giving him shelter. She is allowing him at Balmoral and allowing him to sort of hide in her skirts. And I think that is for the Queen's image, particularly in America, it is damaging for her."
Daily Mail reported that Prince Andrew is currently hiding at Balmoral with Queen Elizabeth and his ex-wife, Sarah Ferguson, for weeks. The publication claimed that this move aims to protect Andrew from the reports that one of his alleged sexual assault victims is suing him in New York City.
Katie Nicholl's latest remarks came after The Telegraph reported that Queen Elizabeth is spending millions to fund the legal defense team of Prince Andrew. The royal family has yet to make a comment on these reports.
