King Charles wants everything to be “normal” for the kids.
According to a royal expert, King Charles wants Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis to "grow up as normal as possible" so they won't make the 'same mistakes he made.'
The University of St. Andrews' Chandrika Kaul, a professor of modern history, made an appearance on the Channel 5 show The Fab Five: The King's Grandchildren last night.
According to the expert, the newly crowned King desires nothing more than for George, 9, Charlotte, 8, and Louis, 5, to feel secure enough to pursue their goals.
Professor Kaul said, “I think King Charles is very keen that his grandchildren don't make the mistakes that I think he feels he made, particularly when it came to matters of the heart.”
In an interview with Jonathan Dimbleby in 1994, Charles acknowledged cheating on Princess Diana with his current wife, Queen Camilla, when his first marriage had "irretrievably broken down."
As a result, the expert claimed that King Charles has learned from his mistakes and does not want the younger royal generations to experience a similar fate.
She continued, “What I think he wants to do is try and help these young grandchildren grow up in as normal a way as possible and create more fully rounded human beings who are unafraid of their emotions and who are able to have the confidence to marry whom they want.”
“And to have a happy, successful and fulfilled personal life.”
The younger royals' ability to forge their own paths inside the Institution, according to Scottish broadcaster Ayesha Hazarika, will safeguard the longevity of the monarchy.
She said, “Charles, as a good grandfather, will have to explain to the other two that they're not just spares, they're not just surplus to requirement.”
Ailsa Anderson, who served as the late Queen Elizabeth's press secretary, thought on Princess Charlotte's unique position as the third in line for the throne.
She said, “It appears to me that Princess Charlotte has no qualms at all about being in the spotlight on public events.”
