ASK most eight-year-old boys what they want to be when they grow up and the answer will probably be something along the lines of fireman, police officer or rock star.

Speaking to OK! magazine, Duncan Larcombe claimed the Duchess of Cambridge is helping to ease her eldest son into life in the public eye – and it’s all starting with his wardrobe.
The expert said: “George is only just beginning to understand his destiny, but Kate has got the journey planned.”
Last summer, Prince George attended the Euros final at Wembley Stadium with his mum and dad.
And while Prince William was apparently “keen on the idea” of his son donning an England shirt, it was Kate who insisted he wear a suit for the occasion.
Duncan said: “She was showing George that being ’on duty’ requires a different approach.
“He has to learn to don the royal armour.”
But just because he looked smart for the footie, Prince George still expressed his every emotion during the nail-biting match.
The expert added: “George was encouraged to leap up and celebrate England scoring, to roar and wave and hug his mum and dad like any normal lad.
“And even to shed a tear when it all ended in heartbreak.”
In February 2020, it was claimed that Prince William and Kate Middleton had explained George’s destiny to him like it’s from a “storybook”.

Speaking to Closer the source said: “William and Kate have already talked to George and Charlotte about their future roles, but in a child-like way so that they understand without feeling overwhelmed.
“George knows there’s something special about him and that one day he’ll be the future King of England.”
Meanwhile, it has also been reported that the couple waited until George was seven years old to inform him that he’d one day be King.
In his book Battle of Brothers, author Robert Lacey claimed William insisted there was a “time and a place” to tell George about where he “fits in the world”.
He wrote: “From George’s earliest days, William made no secret of his wish to spare his firstborn the casual initiation – or non-initiation – that he felt he had suffered as a child.
“William’s aim as a father, the prince stressed, was to give his son a ‘normal family upbringing’ enabling the monarchy to ‘stay relevant and keep up with modern times.”
In more Royal Family news, Kate Middleton has evolved as a ‘relatable mum’ and shows ‘protective affection’ to her kids like Princess Diana.
And Prince William ‘didn’t want to go to Princess Diana statue unveiling with Harry’ amid rift, close pal claims.
