William and Kate to ‘keep George out of spotlight’ on birthday after trolling

Prince William and Kate Middleton want to keep Prince George "out of the spotlight" on his birthday after the vicious abuse he suffered during the Euros, a royal expert has claimed.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s son turns eight today, July 22, and his parents have already released a sweet picture to mark the occasion.

However, royal commentator Brittani Barger believes any other celebrations are likely to be "private".

Following England’s defeat to Italy in the Euro 2020 final, George was subjected to abuse on social media after appearing in the stands with his parents.

Brittani told the Daily Star: "They [William and Kate] are no doubt unhappy with the abuse sent toward George after the Euros final.

"However, they are still releasing a new photo of the Prince for his birthday.

"Any type of celebrations they have will remain private as they are keen to keep all of their children out of the spotlight where they can so they can have normal childhoods."

George’s birthday comes just days after Prince Harry announced he will be releasing a new memoir.

The book, set to be published in late 2022, will focus on the Duke of Sussex’s life from his childhood to the present day.

A source toldUS Weekly that William and dad Prince Charles are "particularly concerned about what Harry will reveal".

However, Brittani does not think that the news will affect his birthday celebrations.

She added: "I really don't think the Cambridges will let the announcement of Harry's memoir ruin or taint their son's birthday.

"It's something completely separate, and they will want to focus on him for his big day."

The first draft of the manuscript is now almost completely written before a deadline in October, according toPage Six.

Publisher Random House confirmed they had teamed up with Harry on Twitter, with the proceeds set to go to charity.

After the news broke, he confirmed in a statement: "I’m writing this not as the prince I was born but as the man I have become.

"I’ve worn many hats over the years, both literally and figuratively, and my hope is that in telling my story – the highs and lows, the mistakes, the lessons learned – I can help show that no matter where we come from, we have more in common than we think.

"I’m deeply grateful for the opportunity to share what I’ve learned over the course of my life so far and excited for people to read a firsthand account of my life that’s accurate and wholly truthful."
