It is hard to imagine Price George and Princess Charlotte, children of Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, being jealous of any child in the world since they have everything needed in order to have a perfect childhood. Not only they are born into one of the wealthiest families in the world, but they also have loving parents who dot over them and are making sure they have a happy childhood. Still, there is a strong possibility that they will be jealous of the newest baby that is to come into the Royal family, baby Sussex, Prince Henry, and Meghan Markle’s child.
After his father Prince Charles, Prince William is second in line for the throne. Up until recently, only male children could inherit the crown, but in 2013, Parliament passed the Succession to the Crown Act, allowing female children to be heirs as well. That means that both Prince George and Princess Charlotte are in the line of inheritance, with George being third and Charlotte fourth. The burden of growing up as one of the heirs of Queen Elisabeth’s throne is something Prince William is all too familiar with, having dealt with it his whole life. With the public eye on him 24/7, his image always had to be perfect and his record spotless. Same will apply to his children as well.
Baby Sussex’s life won’t suffer from that type of public scrutiny since he or she will be far removed from the line of succession. Realistically speaking, there is hardly any chance of its ruling. This is something Prince Harry is very happy about since he always resented the royal life he was forced to live. During his mother’s funeral, both him and William were walking behind the casket, a memory he relives to this day. In an interview with Newsweek, Harry said: “I don’t think any child should be asked to do that, under any circumstances.” It is easy to see how such experience can scar a child for life.
George, as the oldest child of Prince William, will likely have to suffer the same fate as his father, being forced to behave perfectly at any given moment. It remains to be seen how he will handle all the media attention and public scrutiny.Source: Getty Images
