Prince William says he would be 'absolutely fine' if George, Charlotte or Louis were LGBT: 'I would fully support them'
Prince William visited the LGBTQ charity Albert Kennedy Trust (AKT) which guides young people who are forced onto the streets because of their sexual orientation or for being transgender
The Duke of Cambridge Prince William revealed that he would open-heartedly support his children if they are gay while speaking to young people who told him how they were disowned after opening up to their own parents.
William was visiting an LGBTQ charity Albert Kennedy Trust [AKT] in East London which helps and guides young people who are forced onto the streets because of their sexual orientation or for being transgender.
One man, who chose to remain anonymous, asked William, "If your child one day in the future said, 'Oh I'm gay... Oh I'm lesbian' whatever... How would you react?"
William responded saying, "Obviously... Absolutely fine by me."
He also admitted to being worried that George, Charlotte, or Louis could be 'persecuted' as they are third, fourth and fifth in line to the throne.
37-year-old William got candid on the topic while addressing a group who had been left homeless because of their sexuality and also admitted that he had recently discussed the subject with his wife Kate Middleton.
The group asked William about how he would react to his children being gay and he said, "Do you know what... I've been giving that some thought recently because a couple of other parents said that to me as well. I think you really don't start thinking about that until you are a parent, and I think... Obviously... Absolutely fine by me."
"The one thing I'd be worried about—particularly the roles my children fill—is how that is going to be interpreted and seen. So Catherine and I have been doing a lot of talking about it to make sure they were prepared. 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. 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," he added.
William's visit to the LGBTQ charity could very well be the first time that a royal family member has visited such an organization.
He was also seen taking part in a group discussion which had many ambassadors and young people who have been supported by the charity and are now mentors to others.
