William, who is second in line to the throne, went on to explain that he and wife Kate Middleton had given the matter a lot of thought and had talked at great length about the kind of support they’d give George, Charlotte and Louis, given their prominent position in the public eye.
“The one thing I’d be worried about is how they, particularly the roles my children fill, is how that is going to be interpreted and seen,” he said. “So Catherine and I have been doing a lot of talking about it to make sure they were prepared.”
Prince William continued, “I think communication is so important with everything, in order to help understand it you’ve got to talk a lot about stuff and make sure how to support each other and how to go through the process. It worries me not because of them being gay, it worries me as to how everyone else will react and perceive it and then the pressure is then on them.”
This isn’t the first time William has supported the LGBTQ community.
The prince previously posed for the cover of Attitude magazine in 2016.
Speaking about his brief stint as a model, William joked: “I did my Attitude magazine cover, which was a good day. But I’d seen some of the previous front covers, and I was a bit nervous about what they might ask me to do. Thankfully, there were no small briefs for me!”
