King Charles and Queen Consort Camilla would like their grandchildren to play a key role in the coronation of the new king but Kate Middleton has got one condition that must be followed in relation to Prince George.
Nine-year-old Prince George is expected to be at the event in a couple of months time and Charles is eager for him to have a role to play in the ceremony.
According to the Sunday Times, Kate and William have a strict condition on what role he can play and they are set to meet with Charles and Camilla to discuss it.
It breaks tradition to have the youngster playing a role in the ceremony but with so much changing for the royal family in recent years, this does not seem to be a concern for Charles.
Royal historian Hugo Vickers told the Sunday Times: “Bringing George in also sends all the right symbolism for the future and gives him something he will always remember. It is certainly different – this coronation is getting more interesting by the minute.”
Kate and William do not want George to play a role in which he is subjected to overwhelming scrutiny, be that from organizers or the watching world.
Historian Dr Tessa Dunlop has spoken to the Mirror before about children’s roles in the coronation.
She said: “George alongside siblings Charlotte and Louis will be a big visual pull at the coronation – just as Prince Charles was at his mother’s.
“Expect Charlotte in a dainty coronet [small crown] – perhaps even the one the late Queen wore to her father’s coronation aged 10 – and the two brothers in frock coats and breeches.
