Most boys and people dream of becoming princes and kings, but this is a part of the reality that Prince William lives in.
Knowing it from childhood
Since he is the oldest child of Prince Charles and Diana, William has automatically become second in the line of the succession of the British throne. He would become a king after Prince Charles. It surely has its benefits but it also must be hard to live an entire life knowing that you would be the king of the UK one day. It practically means that you would not have any privacy and that media and paparazzi would watch every step you make. Whether it is about his royal wedding or about the births of his children, the entire world was involved in William’s private moments like this. However, at some point, it seemed as William is not interested in the crown at all, but we can see now that he is preparing for it.
A rescue pilot
At one point of his life, William was not so present in the media. This was the time when he lived on the outskirts of London with Kate and when he was working as a rescue pilot. Despite of all the constant interest in them and their lives, this was the times when they had privacy the most.
When his mother, Princess Diana, died, William was only 15. He had a very good and close relationship with his mother and her death must have a tremendous effect on him and his life. Diana was known for being active in charities and love that she conveyed all over the globe. Her nickname People’s Princess just talks about how the public loved her and it should be also added that she is one of the most favorite royals of all time. It may happen that William feels the same need as his mother did to be there for all people of England and to serve them.
It should be also noted that William has had a very carefree life when he was very young and during his college years. He had a lot of friends during his studies in Scotland, above all, he met Kate there. It is certain that he did not think much about the crown and becoming a king at that time.
From the moment he became a father, William’s life changed since he now has a new role in life and children to take care of. As a future king and a member of the royal family, he is aware that he needs to be a good role model for all of his three children. This specifically applies to Prince George who would come in his place as a future king of England.
It now seems that William is doing everything he can to be as much prepared for the royal duties and becoming a good king. It seems that this started to happen from the moment he got married to Kate.
