Kate Middleton has reportedly had enough of the hate being directed towards her son and may in turn choose not to share a birthday portrait of her son for his eighth birthday this year.
For those not aware of the recent online harassment, the barrage of hate against the 7-year-old began after he was photographed at the Euro 2020 games which ended up becoming a social media casualty.
The claim has been brought forward by royal author and biographer Angela Levin.
During her interview on True Royalty TV’s The Royal Beat, she was quoted saying, “There are rumors that we might not see the photograph [of Prince George] when he’s eight, because they’ve been so upset by the rudeness of people mocking a little boy aged seven, and I hope they can overcome that.”
Even co-author of the book “Diana: Closely Guarded Secret” spoke to Sunrise TV about the recent outburst of hate against the 7-year-old and admitted, “Some were critical about him wearing a shirt and tie like his dad, which I thought was very harsh.”
“He has been very popular, but I think they are going to try and keep him out of the limelight a little bit. They are very conscious of that. The pictures were great with his dad when he was celebrating for that all too brief moment.”

Praising the Royal couple’s parenting style
When George, who was born on July 22, turned 7 in 2020, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge revealed to him that he would one day be king.
The royal expert Roya Nikkhah praised William and Kate for easing George into public life as he is third in line for the throne.
“This is an official duty for Prince George at the age of 7,” Nikkhah explained on the same program. “It’s lovely and happy and there’s a lot of emotion.”
She added, “Getting him used to big crowds and knowing that he is being watched by millions of people it’s quite a clever way of doing it.”
Ever since her royal marriage, the Duchess has undertaken royal duties and engagements in support of the Queen.
She holds patronage within over 20 charitable and military organizations, including Action for Children, SportsAid, and the National Portrait Gallery. She undertakes projects through The Royal Foundation, with her charity work focusing on issues surrounding young children, addiction, and art.
To encourage people to open up about their mental health issues, the Duchess has established the mental health awareness campaign “Heads Together”, launched with the Duke and Prince Harry in April 2016.
The media have called Catherine’s impact on British and American fashion the “Kate Middleton effect”. In 2012 and 2013, Time magazine selected her as one of the 100 Most Influential People in the World.
