It might be tough to imagine it right now, since he is still so young, the oldest son of Prince William and Kate Middleton will be king at some point in his life. He is third in line and when the time comes and he is crowned king, he will have all the advantages the royal before him had.
Keep reading to learn about the things he will inherint when he becomes king.
He will get jewels, a royal duchy, dolphins and whales
When he becomes king he will firstly get the Duchy of Lancaster which includes property, land and financial investements. The Duchy has existed since 1300s and hold more than 45,000 acres of land that includes historic buildings, urban develpoments and many farmlands across England. The point of it is to give a income for the reigning Sovereign.
He will also be exempt of taxes.
Next, he will inherit the crown jewels. These valuable items are held in the Tower of London and have many amazing pieces.
This might sound strange to you but a part of his inheritance are also dolphins and whales that reside in the waters around England. According to a 1324 statute from the reign of King Edward II, “The king shall have wreck of the sea throughout the realm, whales and sturgeons taken in the sea or elsewhere within the realm, except in certain places privileged by the king.”
The law you just read is still valid to this day.
When do his parents mean to tell him he will become king one day?
Since he is still very young, Prince George still doesn’t have any idea of what his life is going to be. They have not told him anything yet since they want him to have a normal childhood.
“As far as we are concerned within our family unit, we are a normal family. I love my children in the same way any father does, and I hope George loves me the same way any son does to his father,” William said in his statement. “We are very normal in that sense. There’ll be a time and a place to bring George up and understand how he fits in, in the world. But right now it’s just a case of keeping a secure, stable environment around him and showing as much love as I can as father.”
