The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are giving their newborn all the love and attention in the world — but they’re also planning for his future. The most pressing concern is making sure that the little prince gets a chance at a normal childhood — even if he’s already one high profile little guy!
Prince George‘s life is going to be anything but typical — after all, he came into the world amidst international excitement and he made his television debut at a press conference mere hours after he was born. But his parents Prince William and Kate Middleton want to keep his childhood as close to normal as possible.
Royal Baby School Plans: No Boarding School In George’s Future
“Both William and Kate are against boarding school. That has been ruled out,” a source close to the couple tells Us Weekly. William went off to boarding school in 1990 — when he was 8 years old — and did not enjoy the experience. He reportedly always waited around until it was time for his monthly visits home!
By having George go to school around home, he will have a closer-knit family relationship!
Prince William & Kate Middleton Want To Keep George Out Of The Spotlight
“William wants to raise George out of the spotlight as much as possible and give him a somewhat normal childhood,” a source close to the couple tells Us Weekly.
One of the major factors in George growing up with a sense of normalcy is having his parents present in his daily activities. Since Kate didn’t grow up in the public’s view, it completely makes sense that she wishes the same for her son.
“William is putting off taking full-time royal duties. Working for the armed forces allows his family more privacy,” a source explains. If George is not always traveling around to public royal functions with his family, he can keep out of the spotlight.
