Someone needs to alert Charles that his fate has been diagnosed via photo...so silly

Keep in mind that they are only figureheads; they don't actually run the country.  That's the purpose of their parliament.

Re: Growing Up A Future King

When you read the article it discussed how monarchs use to be raised and educated away from the public and the modern ones are choosing a different style.  The modern monarchs are much more aware of the worlds problems and achievements, thus allowing them to better bring positive change.

You never look good trying to make someone else look bad.

Did I miss something I neither said nor indicated?

 

The article cited deals primarily with how Charles and William and Harry were raised and how that has influenced each generation's parenting.  Any reference to actually being King is tangential.

The more I learn the more I realize how little I know.

Re: Growing Up A Future King

I found the article interesting and you can see the love William has of his mother and things she taught him

Good heavens, that little guy isn't going to be King for 60 or 70 years.  The concept of royalty might not exist of it might have changed radically by the time he succeeds William as King in 70 years or so.  That family lives a very long time and even William isn't going to be king anytime soon.  No, I didn't read the article because 100% certain that it's supposition.  


@Chrystaltree   But he still needed to be "brought up" for the past six years.  And as of now being King is in his destiny so he needs to be brought up to be a future king. Things learned early in life are important for later in life.  You can't "bring someone up" later.

Re: Growing Up A Future King

@Marp I thought the article was interesting...especially the part about how Williams states, "He will fight to ensure his children lead a normal life". I believe this is beneficial to whomever is the next/future king. Thanks again for sharing the article!
