Prince George told classmate 'my father will be King so you better watch out'

Nothing like a bit of humility is there…

If you’ve grown up as part of the Royal family, it probably isn’t long before you realise that you’re life is very different to everyone else’s. And it certainly seems like Prince George is more than aware of how important his family is.

Despite being just nine, he’s clearly aware of the role that his father will one day inherit, having apparently warned a classmate at school: “My dad will be king so you better watch out.”

This is according to royal expert and author Katie Nicholl.

Writing in her new book, The New Royals, she says: “[William and Kate] are raising their children, particularly Prince George, with an awareness of who he is and the role he will inherit, but they are keen not to weigh them down with a sense of duty.

“George understands he will one day be king and as a little boy sparred with friends at school, outdoing his peers with the killer line: ‘My dad will be king so you better watch out’.”

A cheeky line to say the least but, to be fair, I think most of us would would be bragging at primary school if their dad was literally going to be king one day.

It comes after we found out the Bank of England revealed when William’s dad, King Charles III, will start appearing on our money.

Bank notes, coins and stamps featuring the face of King Charles III have been announced alongside the unveiling of his Majesty’s new monogram.

New banknotes featuring Charles are expected to enter circulation by mid-2024 and his portrait will appear on existing designs of all four denominations of banknote (£5, £10, £20 and £50).

This will be a continuation of the current polymer series and no additional changes to the banknote designs will be made, the Bank of England said.

There are around 27 billion coins currently circulating in the UK bearing the effigy of the Queen. These will be replaced over time as they become damaged or worn, and to meet demand for additional coins.

Four stamps that feature portraits of the Queen will also released in her memory, the Royal Mail has announced.
