On their children’s birthdays, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge always share pictures of the birthday children, thanking fans for their warm words and wishes. On July 22, Prince William and Kate Middleton’s eldest son will celebrate his 8th birthday, and there’s a good chance his photo won’t appear on Kensington Palace’s Instagram. The whole thing is that after appearing at Euro 2020, Prince George became the object of ridicule online, which, according to insiders, has taken a heavy toll on his mental health.
“There are rumors that we won’t see a picture of Prince George when he turns eight because Kate and William were extremely upset by the rudeness of people making fun of the 7-year-old boy. Hopefully they can get over it,” shared expert Angela Levine on True Royalty TV.
Royalty reporter Roya Nikka noted that the Cambridges were wise to take George to the European Championship final: “At seven years old, it’s already an official duty for Prince George. It’s nice, it’s fun, he’s experiencing a lot of emotions. It’s a pretty smart way to let him get used to a big crowd and show him that millions of people are watching.”
