Kate Middleton and Prince William heartbroken about ‘rudeness of people mocking George’.The young prince, who recently turned eight, melted royal fans’ hearts last month as he was captured cheering on England at the Euro 2020 final against Italy.
Fans shared their delight at seeing the future king looking smart in a suit and tie as he watched with his parents. He then was pictured hugging them both when England scored early in the game. But then he was seen looking sad after the team narrowly lost to Italy on penalties.
George also received some online trolling following the game, which royal biographer Angela Levin claimed Kate and William are likely to have been upset by. Speaking on True Royal TV, she added she hoped the royals could “overcome that”. She said: “They’ve been so upset by the rudeness of people mocking a little boy.
“I hope they can overcome that.” A source also recently told Us Weekly that Kate and William were concerned about George growing up in the world of social media as the future king. The source said: “Of course, William and Kate are nervous about what the future holds for George.
“He’s growing up in a different era to his parents. Times have changed since then. “There wasn’t social media or internet trolls when William and Kate were children. “The Cambridges feel it’s necessary to shield George, Charlotte and Louis from the spotlight and have become cautious about the appearances [they] make.
“Kate and William are being more selective about the events he attends.” George was also recently pictured looking at ease in new pictures taken for his birthday last month. In the new picture, he perched on the bonnet of a Land Rover Defender in a sweet nod to his great grandfather Prince Philip, who died in April.
George was also pictured beaming at Kate, who was behind the camera in the new photograph. He was casually dressed in a polo-style striped top and shorts. The Duchess is a keen photographer and regularly produces images of George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis to mark milestones in their lives.
The image was taken outdoors in Norfolk, where the Cambridges have their family home, Anmer Hall, which is close to the Queen’s Sandringham residence. George has also come under scrutiny in a new HBO Max television show called The Prince, which is also unlikely to have gone down well with Kate and William.
The show mocks every member of the royal family, but a lot of the programme focuses on the parody of George and his siblings, Princess Charlotte, 6, and Prince Louis, 3.
Women’s rights activist and author Dr. Shola Mos-Shogbamimu, recently said on Good Morning Britain: “Bottom line, children are off limits. “Creating a parody to poke fun at an 8-year-old is not funny. “It’s uncalled for, and it goes against our collective sense of responsibility.”
