Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge, and her husband Prince William are concerned about the future of their eldest son George, who is considered the third in line to the throne. The parents ‘ experiences are connected with the era of digitalization, Us Weekly reports, citing its own source.

According to a person close to the royal family, Kate Middleton and Prince William realize that they grew up differently. “Times have changed since then. When William and Kate were children, there were no social networks and Internet trolls,” the source said.

The Duke and Duchess are trying to protect the children from public attention. In relation to the older child, they carefully approach the choice of events at which he appears.

The insider also noted that parents do not require special treatment for their children. For example, at school, their eldest son is called George, not Prince George. The couple “want their children to remain children, but at the same time instill in them good manners and teach them not to take their status for granted.”
