Naturally, Prince George‘s birth in July 2013 was met with waves of enthusiasm throughout the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth realm, as him being the firstborn child of Prince William and Kate Middleton meant that he is the third in the line for the British throne.
However, with the young royal prince recently celebrating his 7th birthday, many royal family fans have been wondering whether they could expect more public appearances of him in the near future.
The eldest son of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge represented his family in an official capacity at the age of two at the Royal International Air Tattoo.
George now has royal fans eagerly awaiting to see him take part in his first solo event. Note that Prince William was 8 years old when he made an official appearance in Cardiff.
Judging from the past, it might take a few more years until Prince George starts making solo appearances, as his father was 23 when he arrived for an engagement without being accompanied by another royal family member.
In William’s case, he appeared at a rugby event held in New Zealand and stayed in the country for 11 days. The second in line to the British throne was welcomed upon landing in the country by fervent crowds, who could not get enough of the young royal.
Interestingly, Prince Harry also attended his first solo event at the age of 23. He made an official visit to the Cardiff’s University Hospital, where the royal was greeted by numerous enthusiastic fans gathered to see him.
Following the math and the logic, George will be greeting royal fans on his own in 2036. Meanwhile, the world is learning how Kate Middleton and Queen Elizabeth II have developed a really special bond after the birth of Prince George.
According to a royal expert, the Queen helped shape Kate’s parenting style. Katie Nicholl explained: “Kate was having a conversation with the Queen in which she confided that she had found being with George on her own, and not having a full-time nanny or a maternity nurse, very hard. William and Kate wanted to be hands-on parents, and they did it until September, and then they recruited a nanny.”
Nicholl went on to say that Kate’s mom, Carole Middleton, has played a huge role in her grand children’s lives.
The expert claimed: “One of the things that allow William and Kate to be so ordinary is the presence of the Middletons in their lives. Carol is a regular through those golden gates at Kensington Palace, and she whizzes through in her Land Rover. There is no security because everybody knows her. She turns up to help with bedtime and bath time. She is absolutely indispensable.”
Despite his young age, George has a nice following.
