Prince George will have to adjust to strict royal protocol when he turns 12-years-old, as he will be unable to travel with his parents for holidays and engagements abroad. While Prince William and Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge’s children are young, the Queen has allowed the rule “to slide” but it’s expected to be enforced once the young Prince comes of age. 

Nicki Swift reported: “As the future monarch, the Duke must adhere to most royal protocols and Kate must follow his lead, though they occasionally make exceptions.

“The couple aren’t even supposed to travel together with their children in the event that a tragic event wipes out the second, third, fourth, and fifth heirs to the throne.

“Queen Elizabeth has let this rule slide but it’s expected to be enforced when their eldest child, Prince George, turns 12.”

The seven-year-old Prince George is currently third in line to the throne, after his father Prince William and grandfather Prince Charles. 

The young Prince has largely been kept out of the spotlight, in order to allow him and his siblings to have as normal a childhood as possible. 

Aside from official photographs released on special occasions, Kate and William have tried to secure privacy for their three children. 

Prince George was recently spotted on Sunday evening at Wembley Stadium, as he cheered on the England national football team in their unsuccessful bid to become Euro Championship winners. 

His parents were seen consoling him after the devastated Prince watched his team lose to Italy on penalties. 

His younger siblings, Princess Charlotte, 6, and Prince Louis, 3, remained at home. 

Royal protocol states that two heirs should never travel on the same flight, a rule which will apply to all the Cambridge children once they grow older. 

Following the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s three children, the sixth in line to the throne is Prince Harry. 

His two young children, Archie Harrison, and Lilibet Diana, are in seventh and eighth place.

Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle, however, have withdrawn from their roles as senior royals and have relocated to California. 

Following Lilibet Diana, Prince Andrew and his two daughters, Princess Beatrice and Eugenie take ninth, tenth, and twelfth place. 

The Queen’s eldest son, Prince Charles, is the immediate heir to the throne and will become king when Her Majesty passes away. 

In a break from royal tradition, it is expected that he will remain at Clarence House and open Buckingham Palace to the public, in an effort to modernise the monarchy.
