One day he will have everything that touches the light.

Wait, this is The Lion King but Prince George has the birthright of Great Britain and so far 1

6 Commonwealth domains – is not all that shabby.

Do not worry, the little boy is not yet aware of what exactly awaits him a few decades later road. He may suddenly be a big boy who turns 6 on Monday, even though it feels like he was just born, but for The Talk it is still a little too early: "The time of a king as ruler is rising and falling like the sun … "

Oops, King of the Lions again. But still, that's a pretty universal lesson, especially if your universe contains secession lines, crowns and thrones, as is the case with George, whether he is aware of it or not.

More than any future king born before him, including his father Prince William and grandfather Prince Charles George's royal upbringing is pushed into the background for as long as possible he may be a versatile student of the world and a prince perhaps not even as a distant second. After all, at the moment he has so many other titles, including son, big brother, grandson, great-grandson and cousin.

"Stability at home is so important to me, I want my children in a happy, stable, secure world, and that's so important to us both as parents," William told British GQ in [20179010]. "I want George to grow up in a real, vibrant environment I do not want When he grows up behind palace walls, he has to be out there The media makes it harder, but I'll fight for a normal life . "

Most boys do not celebrate the big 0-6 on the super Caribbean Mustique, as George reportedly collaborated with his family this week, but William and Kate Middleton knew from the beginning that they raised their children wanted to be as little affected as possible by the House of Windsor, admittedly unusual circumstances.

They could not go as far as the Queen's daughter, princess Anne by not giving titles to his children – tradition in relation to the descent of the Prince of Wales and future kings – but it is unlikely that George demanded that someone call him "Your Royal Highness".

William did not even know that he was second on the throne until other children took him to school afterward asked because his parents wanted him to care only about being a child. Princess Diana told him that all these photographers only wanted pictures of her so as not to worry.

Prince Charles, born as his grandfather King George VI. was still alive. and therefore he was second at birth and had no real idea of ​​his place in the monarchy until he was a bit older and understood why people were so interested in everything he did.

with the most horrible inexorable sense, "Charles said in an interview on the occasion of his 21st birthday in 1969, and asked how he felt as a boy when he found out that one day he would become king." … and slowly you come up with the idea that you have a certain duty and responsibility. "

As his mother, Queen Elizabeth II, On TV (oh the shame!) During the Commonwealth Games – which he watched with a group of friends – she called him the Prince of Wales.

This brought his title number to a close and he eventually grew He once said that his favorite of the group was Lord of the Isles. "I am an incurable romantic, and it is a wonderfully romantic title," he explained. (It comes into effect when he's off the West Coast sc

The biographer Sally Bedell Smith described him in her book of 2017 Prince Charles: The passions and paradoxes of an unlikely life as "indisputably" better prepared to be king than his predecessors of the 20th century Century as Prince of Wales. "And not only because he became the oldest heir to the throne in 300 years in 2013 at the age of 65.

Rather, Charles developed passions and a work ethic that made him a fully functional human and not just a legitimate polo player Playboy or an uninterested henchman He was the first family member to attend school as a boy outside the palace, the Hill House School in Knightsbridge, his father, Prince Philip said they wanted him to "discipline" from childhood resulting from training with others.

George makes his training outside the home since he was 2 1/2 years old, first at the Westacre Montessori School in Norfolk and then at Thomas's Battersea in South London, where lessons start at $ 7,500 a year, the pioneer being the first man in his life Family branch who attends a joint school before studying. In fact, his 4-year-old sister, Princess Charlotte will join him in September. Her cousin Maud Windsor Granddaughter of the Queen's first cousin Prince Michael of Kent is also a student there.

As the school notes on their website, rule # 1 in Thomas applies. Battersea is said to be "nice."

When it was time to prepare the school in the 1960s, Charles wanted to go to Eton, but his father insisted on Gordonstoun in Scotland to strengthen him. (It was not co-written until 1972.) The Queen Mother Charles's grandmother, argued for Eton as the ideal place for a future king and wrote in a letter to her daughter, the Queen, by Bedell Smith: "In a strictly Protestant place like the Eton Chapel you would not be involved in controversy!"

William and Harry later tested these waters as they both went to Eton.

Charles and Princess Diana helped shake up their royal upbringing by spending much more time with their children, bathing them, and keeping them out of nursery to be cared for by nannies. (William and Harry had nannies they were very close to – it was speculated that one of them, Tiggy Pettifer, might be one of Archie's godchildren, and Jessie Webb retired to settle at the birth of George – but it's not as if the prince and the princess of Wales had no help.)

They brought nine-month-old William along with them In 1983 they went on an official royal visit to Australia and New Zealand – a then unusual idea, in which William and Kate in 2014 brought an eight-month-old George to Australia and New Zealand. Not surprisingly, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle plan to travel to Africa with Baby Archie this fall.

"We did not see much of him, but at least we were under the same sky, so to speak," Diana later recalled Australia's tour in recordings she gave to biographer Andrew Morton. "That was a great accomplishment for me because everyone wanted to know about his progress."

Diana had her traditional two-seat Jaguar XJ-S Cabriolet outfitted with two special small rear seats so she could drive around William and Harry (with their patrol officer sitting in the passenger seat, of course). When the guys got too big for the Jaguar, they bought a Mercedes 500SL – which caused a stir because never had a member of the British royal family bought a car manufactured abroad.

Even though Charles and Diana were increasingly leading In the late 1980s, their lives separated and both still came to parenting conferences and whatever else was important to their boys. They were both there to deliver William when he first attended a boarding school in Ludgrove. While he was there, the headmaster helped to ensure that William had the normal student experience, and hid the newspapers when there were unflattering stories about his parents' marital problems. (The same thing happened in Eton: Charles and Di met with Harry on Harry's first day in 1995, and his janitor was trying to be normal.)

When they formally seceded in 1992, Prime Minister John Major told the House of Representatives in common with Charles and Diana would continue to unite for important royal and national events and continue with the goal of enabling William and Harry "a happy and safe education".

"One thing I can always say about my mother is that she has fallen in love with Harry and me," William told GQ . "Twenty years later, I still feel the love she has given us, and that is testimony to her massive heart and her amazing ability to be a great mother … I would have liked her advice, I would love her Catherine and … Getting to know the kids growing up makes me sad that she will not, that she will never know them. "

Other than that, The Princess of Wales also did not want her sons to be snooty and protected – all the sentiments that Diana had escaped as a girl after divorcing her parents – and so she also taught William and Prince Harry in a young age Years of value in making connections to people of all walks of life.

"I understand that changes are scary to humans, especially when there is nothing to do, it is best to stay where you are, I understand that" Diana told Panorama Martin Bashir "But I think there are a few things that could change that would ease that doubt and sometimes complicate the relationship between the monarchy and the public, and I think they might go hand in hand rather than so far

As an example, she replied, "Well, with William and Harry, for example, I'm taking them around for homeless projects that I've done to William and Harry to people dying from AIDS – though I do told them it was cancer – I took the kids to all sorts of places where I'm not sure if anyone at this age has been in this family before, and they have a knowledge – they may never use it but the seed is there and I hope it will grow because knowledge is power. (Obviously, they eventually used it.)

Diana said in the Morton bands that she subtly changed what it meant to be in Williams shoes. "People are not aware of that, but it's me," she said. "I would never mess up their cage, the monarchy, because if I believe the mother-in-law has been doing it for 40 years, who am I to change it that way?"

"But through William, what to learn from me and, to a degree, his father has an insight into what's coming. He is not hidden upstairs with the governess. I have selected all schools so far, and there has never been a dispute.

Similar to Charles thinking about becoming a king as a little boy, William was "terribly embarrassed" by the whole thing, which makes him very uncomfortable. "

At the same time, Diana was in a place where she wished Her alienated husband would go out with Camilla Parker-Bowles forever, leaving me and the children to carry the name of Wales by the time William took the throne. And I would stand all the way behind them and I can do this job so much better alone; I do not feel trapped. "She repeated that to some extent to Martin Bashir in 1995. When asked if she would prefer William to take the throne when he is of age, she said," My wish is for my husband to find peace and happiness follow other things, yes. "

Nowadays, however, the role of the king is like a hot potato, nothing to which anyone can confess anything, as a role to be prepared for.

How do I make the royal family in the next 20? For years, you know, it could be 40 years, it could be 60 years – I have no idea when that will be, and I certainly do not lie awake and wait or hope for that, because unfortunately that means My family moved on and I do not want that, "William said in a BBC Special of 2016 about his work as an ambulance pilot.

Understandably, in the meantime, he was perfectly happy to concentrate on being a so-called normal father for so-called normal children.

George is "a bit of a rascal" … He either reminds me of my brother or of me when I was younger, I'm not sure, but he's doing very well right now. William, who has broken all forms when he changed the first diaper of his firstborn son, said at CNN's New Day when George was a month old.

"For me, Catherine and now the little one George my priorities – and Lupo, "he added with reference to her cocker spaniel." As many people know, having dogs and bringing back a newborn baby, they need a little time to adjust, but they are doing well. He's been chasing around the house a bit, so he's perfectly happy. "

"I'm as independent as I want to be, just like Catherine and Harry," the new father explained. "We're all different other generations grew up. I feel like if I can do it myself, I want to do it myself. And sometimes you can not do it yourself and the system takes over – or it's appropriate. "Doing things differently.

" I just do it the way I know it, "William continued. "And if it's the right way, then it's brilliant. If it's the wrong way, I'll try to do it better. I am quite stubborn about what I believe in and what I intend to do, and I have fantastic people around me who are great support and advice. "

At the moment, however," this is the only legacy I want to share with him, more sleep, and perhaps not so much the diaper change.

He raved that Kate had been "doing a fantastic job" as a mother so far.

Once, Charles and Diana Officially Separated Their educational styles diverged in at least one respect: she became more public with the boys while he did preferred to keep the time of the family to themselves.

"I strongly believe they should be protected as much as possible from the pillar to the post office," he said at the time, by Bedell Smith "I do not want them to do too many official things until they have to."

Diana later told Bashir that the reason she was so relentless was to take her on all sorts of trips: "I want her Understanding people's emotions, people's insecurities, people's misery and people's hopes and dreams. "

Both feelings expressed decades ago contrasted with William and Kates shaped approach to parenting.

"As you probably know, I have two children," said William, whose third child was on the way, in 2017 in his keynote speech at the annual public Charity Commission Meeting When I first became a father about four and a half years ago, I began to think about how I was brought up and what values ​​my parents entrusted to me.

He continued, "This process is not necessarily one, which you consciously undertake. They find that certain values ​​and habits that you did not know you had will bubble to the surface. Some of my earliest memories are of times when my parents talked to me or, even better, showed me what it meant to have both privileges and responsibilities.

Remembering their respective charitable responsibilities, he recalled, "Without mine When I realized that my parents instilled in me and Harry a lifelong habit of putting charity at the center of our lives.

All the values ​​that William and Harry will pass on to their children, but first in another private capacity.

"I think royal duty is extremely important," William also told the BBC "I take my responsibility very seriously, but it's about finding your way around at the right time, and if you're not careful, you can weigh a lot at a young age, and me think you have to become a mandatory role.

Although Diana was allegedly considering a complete withdrawal from public life before she died in 1997, she had great plans earlier in the decade for what she could achieve with her platform as Princess of Wales.

"I think I'll go a different way than anyone else," said Diana. Get up and help the man in the street. I hate to say "man in the street" – it sounds so condescending. I do not know yet, but I'm being pushed more and more that way. "

The torch was actually picked up by William and Harry, who are and are out there with their wives. Fortunately, as a royal family, they have the resources, the connections and the flexibility to do it .

To some extent.

The family acknowledges that there are limits to what they can do as the people they are.

Asked why he did not run the London Marathon himself after his and Kate and Harry's Heads Together Campaign had christened the 2017 "Mental Health Marathon" race, William GQ said "I would love it, but from a police point of view, they tested it and they were like" What? ".

So, logistical difficulties, mainly.

But overall, the plan to cultivate future kings who raise upright, round, compassionate young men to lead the monarchy into the future, progress accordingly.

"Best of all to encourage them" Charles told a ladies' circle a visit to Wales shortly before George, his first grandchild, was born. "Show them things that interest you, my grandmother did that, she was wonderful." For himself, he agreed, "It's very important to bond when they're very young."

Kate and William have made sure that George and Charlotte are engrossed in activities such as arts and crafts, baking, and gardening. Her mother involved both in designing a garden area for the Chelsea Flower Show this year. One-year-old Prince Louis was just so old that he could frolic, while his big brother and big sister were investigating something more seriously, but his time will come.

In addition, the children have their duties, such as ensuring that their toys are put away, and all take care of Lupo.

William said at a reception at Kensington Palace for Scotland Yard law enforcement last year that George was "actually obsessed by the police … cars, toys, everything." In fact, the only thing on Santa's list for 2017 was a police car.

When it's time to focus on the brass nails They have the greatest role model in George's great-grandmother or Grannie, as the younger generations, Queen Elizabeth II, call.

"My grandmother has done a remarkable job in the leadership of the country," William told GQ . "Her vision, her sense of duty, her loyalty, her consistency, it was unshakeable."

That being said, "You learn at work, there is no set of rules, I wonder sometimes if there should be one, but in The end, I probably do not think so, with that difference in the way we do things If we all follow the same line, everything would be pretty stifled, our characters are different and the different opinions are important. "

Members of the royal family are not supposed to be in the Intervene politics, whether to advocate a candidate or a party or to throw their weight into influencing politics, but Prince Charles has exceeded this – in particular – and disputed – these limits, not only the reasons that he passionately loves, clearly pointed out, but also explained exactly what he should do.

"My father always came from a depth of knowledge and desire to help." said William, who says he is the Elf is not likely to write advice on Downing Street, but is happy to connect someone with a concern to the right person in the food chain. "He becomes involved in something only when he has these two things: knowledge that matches the desire for help, he is genuinely interested, we can argue until the cows come home, whether what he says right or wrong, but he lives this stuff in every way I would like to know what the public really thinks, whether it shocks or pleases that he is committed.

"He has done this for a long time, and me guess he's used his role really well to ask a lot of questions that people have to ask. "

These generations of royals do not argue for silence, that's for sure, both when it comes to the causes that are important to them – such as the homeless crisis, the veterans services and mental health care – and when it comes to their personal, private Feelings go, as opposed to the push-it-aside stoicism that the era of Prince Philip practiced – and, to a degree, Charles himself, when it came to preserving the royal family. The image of a centuries-old institution – William and Kate wants her children to feel free to express their feelings.

"When I look at my parents' generation, the upper lip was much stiffer," William acknowledged, "Do not get me wrong, there's a time and a place for the stiff upper lip and for those of us in public life times when you need to take care of it, but behind closed doors, in everyday life, w We need to be more open and open to our feelings and emotions. "

However, from his own experience, he knows that he lost his mother at the age of 15 and was encouraged to step in front of a door behind her coffin at the funeral procession to save billions of people what it's like to be in public, but not because it is out of the question.

William added, "You must project the strength of the United Kingdom – hear that ridiculous, but we have to do that. You can not just carry luggage and throw it out there and put it out everywhere. My mother was out there right away and that's why people were so touched by her. But I'm destined to protect myself and the children, and that means keeping something for ourselves. I think I have a stronger sense of self-preservation. "

For now, George has the luxury of focusing on cakes and ice cream, on dating and homework, on bonding with his siblings, and on sticking to his new baby cousin – being a child. that certain lessons need to be learned at some point, but they are not in a hurry, besides, the first king.

"We now have three generations of working royals, a total of four, and this movement through the generations allows the monarchy to remain relevant and to keep up with modern times, "William said. You are only as good as your last appearance and it is really important that you look ahead, plan, have a vision. "
