Prince William would have no problem if one of his children came out as gay, as per his recent stop at Albert Kennedy Trust, a British organization that serves LGBTQ youth, who are homeless or living in a hostile environment.
On Wednesday (June 26), Prince William was put on the spot and asked how he would react if one of his children came out as gay in the future. "I think you really don’t start thinking about that until you are a parent and I think – obviously, absolutely fine by me," the 37-year-old royal said during his appearance at the organization via Daily Mail. "The one thing I’d be worried about – particularly the roles my children fill – is how that is going to be interpreted and seen."
He went on to reveal that he and Kate Middleton have been talking about the future of their children and it all boils down to clear communication. "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," he explained. "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."
The royal couple have three children: Prince George, 5, Princess Charlotte, 4, and Prince Louis, 14 months.
