Can you be a “normal” five-year-old if you’re destined to rule a country someday? That’s what I’ve been wondering since OG royal baby Prince George recently hit his milestone birthday. Allegedly, his parents are trying hard to keep it a secret. “There’ll be a time and a place to bring George up and understand how he fits in, in the world,” Prince William has said. “We are very normal.” Will, I love you, but like…seriously?
Yes, seriously, reports are that Will and Kate are trying to shield their oldest son from the fact that he’s going to be king one day. “Kate has kept her babies out of the public eye as much as possible,” one Radar insider revealed last summer. “They have absolutely no idea that they’re royals. They might look like perfect tots in photos, but at home they play in the mud, fall off their ponies, and have screaming tantrums!”
I mean, look, I’m willing to believe the second part; we’ve seen these kids have some serious tears and temper fits in the past like any other normal child does. But the idea that Prince George has “absolutely no idea” that he’s royal? That’s ridiculous. I don’t care that he doesn’t get “special treatment” at his wildly expensive pre-school, or that he loves “making pizzas.” Celebs are not like us, and really, how many other kids his age basically live in shorts?
We just think Prince George is probably wise to the fact that he’s, you know, Prince George. Scroll down to see the receipts.
