The Duke of Cambridge has experienced upon himself the weight of expectation and destiny his three children are now facing, according to royal commentator Robert Jobson. Nevertheless, next month’s celebrations for the Platinum Jubilee present the perfect opportunity for George, Charlotte and Louis to step further into the limelight and the children are widely expected to play an active role in some of the events.

Mr Jobson told OK! magazine: “All three children are expected to be part of the Jubilee celebrations this year.

“While William understands his children must be visible, he’s also aware of the daunting future ahead of them. He’s been there himself.

“It’s scary, the expectation and destiny placed upon such a young child.”

The expert believes the Duke, reminiscent of his own experience, will properly introduce his children to their roles.

He said: “He’ll prepare them slowly and carefully.

“It’s difficult for anybody, but he’s done a really good job – I saw the children at the Duke of Edinburgh’s memorial service and they’re a credit to their parents.”

Prince William and his wife Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, were accompanied by their two eldest children at Westminster Abbey in March to attend the service of thanksgiving for Prince Philip.

Upon arrival, Prince George, eight, and Princess Charlotte, seven, – while remaining close to their doting parents – impressed royal watchers by shaking hands and exchanging a few words with the clergymen lined up to meet prominent guests.

A few weeks later, Charlotte and George stepped out once again with their parents to attend the Easter Sunday service at Windsor Castle, one of the key yearly royal appointments.

On Christmas Day 2019, George and Charlotte took part in their first-ever walkabout after debuting at St Mary Magdalene Church in Sandringham, where they attended service.

Prince Louis, who turned four last month, has also stepped out with his parents to attend key events.

In June 2019, he joined his siblings, the Queen and family members on the balcony of Buckingham Palace to watch the flypast at the end of the Trooping the Colour parade.

In December 2020, little Louis walked down a red carpet with his siblings and parents to attend a special panto performance at the London Palladium dedicated to frontline workers.

Louis is widely expected to return – with George and Charlotte – on the balcony of Buckingham Palace on June 2, the first of a four-day-long bank holiday weekend marking the 70th year on the throne of the Queen.

But it is also hoped George, Charlotte and Louis will take part in the carriage procession during the Trooping the Colour parade, as their father first attended it when he was the same age as his youngest son.

The children have also been tipped to head to the Tower of London for the Superbloom installation, which will see the medieval moat be flooded with flowers and turned into an attraction with the installation of a massive slide.

Other events planned during the long weekend dedicated to the Queen include a concert at Buckingham Palace and the Epsom Derby.

On June 5, Britons up and down the country will be able to join in street parties and feasts organised by The Big Lunch, of which Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, is the patron.

Kate and Prince William passed on to their children their love for the great outdoors and are known to spend time playing outside with them.

Mr Jobson noted the Duke of Cambridge took this passion after his father Prince Charles.

He said: “William is a very loving, kind and tactile father.

“Perhaps a little soft, but he’s a hands-on dad who helps with school work and helps them embrace the great outdoors – just as his own father Charles did in his youth.”

The Duke himself recalled being slightly reluctant at the idea of embracing nature in his youth as he took part in a special episode of Apple Fitness+’s Time To Walk.

He recalled: “When I grew up, my father used to love his walking and still, to this day, loves his walking and used to try and force Harry and I out of the house the whole time to walk.

“And we weren’t really having any of it. But now, as you get older, you appreciate it a lot more and you see it for what it is.”
