Prince William has made establishing and maintaining boundaries between with the press and royal family one of his top priorities, especially when it comes to photographing and broadcasting news regarding his three children, Prince George, 5, Princess Charlotte, 4, and Prince Louis, 1.
Now, the Duke of Cambridge is getting candid about how being a parent has shaped his outlook on important social issues and topics.
The father of three was asked how he would react if his children told him they were gay or lesbian in the future while visiting The Albert Kennedy Trust, an organization in London that supports young members of the LGBTQ community experiencing homelessness or living in hostile environments.
"I think you really don't start thinking about that until you are a parent," he said, "and I think—obviously, absolutely fine by me."
He also revealed that he worries about how his children will be treated and represented in the media once they get older, sharing that there are several pressures that they'll face as they settle into their roles in the royal family.
"The one thing I'd be worried about is how they—particularly the roles my children fill—is how that is going to be interpreted and seen," he said. "It is something I'm nervous about—not because I'm worried about them being gay or anything—it's more about the fact that I'm worried about the pressures, as you know here, that they're going to face and how much harder their life could be."
