The end of a tradition in the Crown

It was stated that Prince George could direct his own career before becoming King.

The tradition that has been carried on for years in the British Royal Family is coming to an end.

Prince George’s father, Prince William, his uncle Prince Harry, his grandfather King Charles, as well as his great-grandmother Queen Elizabeth and great-grandfather Prince Philip served in the military.

It was stated that 10-year-old George would not be expected to serve in the army before becoming King, breaking centuries-old tradition.

Will shape your own destiny

The second-in-line heir to the throne will be allowed to remain exempt from regular duty in the Armed Forces if he so chooses.

Mail from the UK press, “He will be free to shape his own destiny.” he wrote.

Career first, then Kingdom

Historian Dominic Sandbrook, a longtime friend of George’s father William, said:

“Theoretically, there’s nothing stopping George from pursuing a career as an astronaut and then becoming King.”

Farewell to the old formula

Sandbrook said that the rules are different now, and that it is not necessary to follow the old formula of enlisting in the military and then entering the Royal life.

Giving an example of Princess Charlotte, the 8-year-old daughter of the Kate-William couple, Sandbrook said, “For example, could Charlotte be a doctor? I don’t see any reason why she shouldn’t.” he added.
