Prince George has proven to be the perfect royal role model for his younger siblings – even being dubbed “very protective” over them.
“George is a hard worker. He sometimes needs a nudge like all kids his age but he’s very smart and right up there at the top of his class,” a source close to the Royal Family stated recently. “He’s very protective of his younger siblings and goes out of his way to help his mother with the household chores, especially when it earns him extra time on electronics!”
The young Prince is a “well-grounded down-to-earth little boy,” said the source. “He’s very sociable and can chat for hours about his favorite soccer players, plus he loves rugby, cricket, all forms of sports really,” later adding that George and his father, Prince William, frequently bond over their shared passions.
“He’s definitely a daddy’s boy, it’s not just their physical resemblance, they’ve got a ton of the same interests and hobbies in common – even helicopters!”
These hobbies also include their love for football, which the Duke of Cambridge has previously spoken on, saying they might even root for rival teams eventually!
“I’m letting [George] choose his [favorite team in his] own way. It’s about finding what fits for him,” said the Duke a couple of years ago. “I do like the values and the ethos of the [Aston Villa soccer] club. I want them to look after the players and set a good example to the young fans. I want our children, when they go to the match, to come away loving what they’ve seen, enjoying it and seeing their role models behave in a way that we’d all want them to.”
Even if the future monarch is already displaying some admirable qualities, William and Kate are doing their best to give George a normal childhood.
“He’s well aware that one day he’ll be King and what that entails because William and the other senior royals including his grandpa [Prince] Charles and great grandmother the Queen have told him from an early age about his destiny,” revealed the insider in an issue of US weekly. “He sees it as a huge honor and frequently asks his dad to loan him books about history, he loves listening to stories about his ancestors and the history of the Commonwealth, not just England. It’s very clear he takes it all very seriously and is dedicated to serving the Crown when his time eventually comes.”
The young royal has recently begun making more and more public appearances – carrying himself quite well and taking his duties seriously – most recently at the Wimbledon finals.
“His confidence has grown leaps and bounds over the last couple of years,” another source close to the Crown previously stated. “He is assertive, self-assured and knows what he wants, and doesn’t hold back on speaking his mind. His personality is really starting to shine.”
“Prince George is already showing that he has what it takes to be the future King of England. … Despite the responsibilities he’ll entail in his future role, Kate and William don’t want to see him grow up too quickly. They’re determined to give him as much of a normal childhood as possible and it’s working wonders. He’s such a lovable, down-to-earth little boy,” finished off the insider.
