The might be a lot of years ahead until Prince George is crowned King. But, his future reign has already become subject of discussion.
According to royal commentators, when George becomes King, he is likely to keep his birth name as his regnal name as a way to honour Queen Elizabeth’s father King George VI.
In the Channel 5 documentary, When the Middletons Met the Monarchy, narrator Glynis Barber said: “Regardless of his upbringing, Prince George, along with his siblings Charlotte and Louis, will have an undeniable date with destiny.”
Royal biographer Claudio Joseph said: “One day, Prince George will be king.
“He will almost definitely be styled as King George VII.
“It’s amazing to think that he is descended from a family of miners in County Durham.”
Daily Mail Editor-at-Large Richard Kay also joined and added: “The Royal Family will have to wait and see what kind of added extras that Middleton entrepreneurial spirit will produce in Prince George and his brother and sister.
“It will be exciting finding out.”
It is not uncommon for the heirs of the throne to choose a different reign name from his or her personal name.
For example, King George VI himself was actually christened Albert Frederick Arthur George, and known as ‘Bertie’.
He chose the name “George VI” to emphasise continuity with his father and restore confidence in the monarchy.
According to the Daily Mail, a source has revealed that William and Kate are preparing George, who is third in line to the British throne, by explaining it like a storybook.’
“William and Kate have already talked to George and Charlotte about their future roles, but in a child-like way so that they understand without feeling overwhelmed.
“George knows there’s something special about him and that one day he’ll be the future King of England.”
