It comes after speculation Duchess Catherine’s mother, Carole Middleton, hosted a rival Peter Rabbit-themed party on Friday at their home outside Bucklebury in Berkshire. As the youngster prepares to turn a year old, royal biographer Andrew Morton has predicted that his dad will one day abdicate in favour of son Prince George.
“I think William will become the first king to do the job for several years but then abdicate… I”m not saying William has consciously planned this far ahead but I think this is how it will unfold,” he told The Sun newspaper.
Prince William is reportedly expected to begin work as an air ambulance pilot close to home so he can be a “hands-on dad”. Kensington Palace is expected to confirm within the next few weeks that the Duke has postponed taking on full-time royal duties to work as a helicopter pilot with East Anglia Air Ambulance, according to the Daily Mail newspaper.
