Fortunately, the public has been able to see George grow up.

"Although Prince George might be future King of the Castle, he's not King of the Castle yet," expert Duncan Larcombe noted. "He's not Little Lord Fauntleroy. He's a rascal (almost) 8-year-old — full of mischief and always playing tricks and pranks on his younger sister and brother."

"Hopefully George can enjoy all the benefits of royal life, but without the extraordinary, weird impact of growing up in a goldfish bowl," he continued. "They will have to explain the extraordinary circumstances he's been born into and hope, as a result, his head doesn't pop and he doesn't become a complete lunatic, as has happened to some members of his family."

Clearly, George is a huge soccer fan, as he "begged" his parents to let him attend the Euro 2020 final.

“Prince William is George’s absolute hero,” Larcombe said. “He thinks his dad’s the most perfect person on the planet. William would never have normally taken him to the football because it was an official outing in his role as president of the FA, but George absolutely begged to be allowed to come along."
