We are used to seeing the royal children alongside their parents at royal events, and most of the time they steal the spotlight with their adorable antics. The public is just in love with Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Savannah Phillips. However, grandmother and great-grandmother Queen Elizabeth II like the kids to keep a lower profile.
In a 2016 interview with BBC, Prince William said that he and his wife Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, want their kids to have a normal upbringing, which includes not telling Prince George that he will be king one day. “There’ll be a time and a place to bring George up and understand how he fits in, in the world,” he said.
Ken Wharfe, Princess Diana’s former bodyguard, also told People how the Queen impacts the raising of royal kids. “The Queen doesn’t like too much, too early. Her belief is that they are children and should stay out of the limelight,” he said. “George will know exactly who he is, and William and Kate will want to make sure that his moment of entering royal glory is kept away as long as possible.”
George started school at Thomas’s Battersea last year, where he’s known as George Cambridge. “Our aim for him, as well as for all of our pupils, is to provide a safe and secure and happy environment where he feels supported by a kind and loving community,” Ben Thomas, former headmaster of Thomas’s Battersea and now the principle across several sister-schools, told reporters last year. “That’s something we will be trying to achieve for him.”
