This week however, it was the Duke of Cambridge who made headlines, opening up about his children during a recent royal visit to the charity, the Albert Kennedy Trust, to officially open its new services.
The charity helps homeless LGBTQ+ people, with Prince William’s visit coming just ahead of the annual Pride in London parade.
During his visit, the Duke of Cambridge was asked questions by young ambassadors for the charity, who asked him how he would feel if any of his children – Prince George, Princess Charlotte or Prince Louis – identified as LGBTQ+.
‘[I would be] absolutely fine by me,’ William told them, explaining how he and the Duchess of Cambridge had already discussed what they would do and how their only concern would be that their positions as royal family members would make them vulnerable to ‘hate or persecution’.
‘I support whatever decision they make,’ he explained. ‘But it does worry me from a parent’s view how many barriers, hateful words, persecution and discrimination that might come. That’s the bit that troubles me a little bit.’
