Prince George has no idea about his royal destiny yet. And, that’s exactly how his great-grandmother Queen Elizabeth wants it to be, at least for now.
The royal family doesn’t want to pressurize the little prince just yet.
Prince William told in an interview in 2016 that they’re a ‘normal family’ and his son will learn about his place as third in line to the British throne only when it’s appropriate.
The Duke of Cambridge said: “We are very normal in that sense. There’ll be a time and a place to bring George up and understand how he fits in, in the world”.
“But right now, it’s just a case of keeping a secure, stable and playful environment around him and showing as much love as I can as his father”.
Before George starts his duties as a full-fledged royal, he still has a few years left to enjoy just being a kid.
“Her Majesty doesn’t like too much, too early. Her belief is that they are children and should stay out of all this limelight”, Ken Wharfe, Diana’s former bodyguard, told The Royal UK.
“Prince George will know exactly who he is, and his parents, William and Kate will want to make sure that his moment of entering royal glory is kept away as long as it is possible”.
For now, George is just a regular 5-year-old boy, just like other children.
In September, he began school at Thomas’s Battersea. And there, he’s not known as “Prince George” but as “George Cambridge”.
On talking to the former headmaster of Thomas’ Battersea, he said:-

“Our aim for him and for all our students is to provide a safe and a happy environment. A place where he feels supported by a kind and loving community. That’s something we will be trying to do for him”.
He added: “There won’t be any special treatment at all. In fact, what his parents would like for him, is they have a wonderful and private childhood in a place which is secure”.
