The duke and duchess of Cambridge have a new baby boy, George Alexander Louis. The child will be known as Royal Highness Prince George of Cambridge and is third in line to the throne. What will his upbringing be like? While that story has yet to unfold, let’s take a look at what we already know and how his father and uncle were raised for some insight into how this little one may grow up.
We keep hearing the term “modern monarchy” when referring to Prince William and his wife Catherine. During the baby’s debut outside St. Mary’s hospital on July 23, Prince William placed his son’s car seat in the car and drove his family home himself. The message seemed clear: Prince William will be a hands-on dad. This hasn’t been the norm when it comes to royal child rearing. More on that later.
However, Prince William and Prince Harry were raised more “normal” than any royals before them. This has largely been credited to their mother, Princess Diana.
