    Prince George was told his destiny as a future monrach of the United Kingdom around the age of seven, according to a Royal Family biographer.

    Writer Robert Lacey now reckons George will be given years of training to prepare him for the responsibility of one day becoming his country's king, as well as what is expected of him in the years before he assumes the throne, reports The Mirror.

    The eldest child of Prince William is currently second in line to the throne behind his father and, as such, will be regarded as a senior royal with a duty to support a variety of individuals and charities in the UK and around the world.

    George's lessons are expected to be very similar to those undertaken by his father, grandfather (King Charles) and great-grandmother (Queen Elizabeth).

    During his school days at Eton College, young Prince William would walk up the hill and attend tea with the Queen at Windsor Castle where he would be prepped for his future as king.

    Speaking about their relationship, Lacey said: "When William became a teenager, she would have him at Windsor Castle and would open the state boxes and guide him through the papers. It was William's constitutional education."

    Lacey also speculated about the young royal's future in an updated version of his book "Battle of Brothers". He wrote: "William has not revealed to the world how and when he broke the big news to his son.

    "Maybe one day George will tell us the story himself. But sometime around the boy’s seventh birthday in the summer of 2020 it is thought that his parents went into more detail about what the little prince’s life of future royal 'service and duty' would particularly involve."

    Lacey continued that William and Kate wanted to sit George down at a "controlled moment of their choice" at the age of seven.

    Their decision was said to link to "William’s unhappiness at the haphazard fashion in which the whole business of his royal destiny had buzzed around his head from the start."

    In preparation for his life of public service, Prince George will be given special lessons in everything from his official duties to the constitution and the importance of the Commonwealth.
