How Will Prince George Act At Princess Charlotte's Christening? He's Been Known To Bring Out Some Signature Sass
If you've ever been to any kind of religious ceremony where children are present, you know that those guys are crazy unpredictable. Like, there is the toddler who is literally screaming at the top of his lungs as his mom frantically rushes him the eff outta there before people start getting pissed. There is also the adorable little girl who loudly announces to the congregation that she has to go potty right now. And then — well, then there's the kid who actually does it. Of course, all of these potentially mortifying acts are just kids being kids. But what does this all mean for Prince George's behavior at Princess Charlotte's christening on Sunday, July 5? Will the future King of England automatically act differently from other tots just because one day he'll be king? *cues Lion King soundtrack*
Though I am sadly not the Prince George Baby Whisperer (TM), it turns out that the royal family has been dropping clues all along that show how Prince George will act at his little sister's baptism. And of course by "dropping clues" I mean "telling the public a little bit about George's personality so I am able to gain some insight into how he will act at Charlotte's christening." So, to quote the British, let's have a look.
First of all, let's remember Prince George's serene-like behavior at his own christening. Even though his dad, Prince William, has detailed his son's loud cries (he "has a voice to match any lion's roar!" the proud dad once said), the future King of England was totally chill when it came time to be baptized.
And then there is Prince George's relationship with Princess Charlotte. Of course, all the public knows of the siblings' companionship is based on those beyond adorable photos of the pair, but it pretty much goes without saying that they are straight-up some of the sweetest babies the royal family has ever produced. It's clear from the photos (like the one of George kissing Charlotte's head) that he enjoys being a big brother and can't keep the smile off of that little face. My heart, it's melting.
Still, there's a chance he could get a little cheeky, like his dad Prince William, who famously stuck out his tongue while en route to Prince Andrew's wedding back in 1986. William had all of the maturity of a four-year-old back then, so it's entirely possible that his almost two-year-old son could follow in his dad's footsteps and get a little silly.
At the end of the day, I can't imagine that Prince George would end up having some kind of temper tantrum like a ~normie~, and if he did, his nanny will be in attendance to quickly rectify that kind of behavior. My ultimate conclusion is that he'll act like any almost-two-year-old in church, maybe with a little more reserve and silence than the rest (he's already being brought up with that traditional royal stoicism, even though he might not exactly grasp it yet). Sure, he may get fussy if he's bored or have a hard time sitting still, but I think his "good pair of lungs," as Prince William once dubbed his cries, will probably stay tucked inside until after the service.
At the end of the day, Prince George is a toddler and will probably act like one. And since the ceremony is private anyway, the only ones who can actually comment on the future King's behavior inside the church are the guests, who will probably have nothing but glowing things to say about the adorable royal — even if he does get a little bit cheeky.
