Confident Prince George knows what is expected of him as heir turns 10

"Confident" Prince George "knows what he's doing" as he turns 10, according to a royal expert.

The young heir, who is celebrating his birthday today, has done a lot of growing up in the last decade and is beginning to understand "what is expected" of him despite his youth.

Commentator Gertrude Daly of Gert's Royals told the Daily Star: "Prince George seems very confident. When he was little he was more shy, and a little overwhelmed by everything at official engagements.

"Now, George seems to know what he is doing and what is expected. For example, He doesn't need to be prompted to shake someone's hand."

Daly added the death of the young royal's great grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, and his grandfather's coronation earlier this year would have helped him better understand his very unique role.

"I think Queen Elizabeth's death and the change in reign has made him very aware of [his future]," she added.

"Being old enough to see his father and grandfather's changing roles in this new reign will help George to understand his future role."

George may only be young, but as second-in-line to the throne, the royal has already taken on some big responsibilities.

The oldest of Prince William and Kate Middleton's brood took centre stage at King Charles' coronation in May where he flourished in his role as page of honour alongside three other boys – despite the role traditionally being reserved for boys aged from 12 to 15.

A well-placed insider said before the historic ceremony: “The King is very keen to show those in the line of ­succession, his natural heirs, at the centre of his Coronation.

“Even though he is only nine, George is very mature and already has a deep understanding of the roles of his grandfather and father, as well as his future role.

“This task is a wonderful sign of the future being laid out by the King.”

George also featured in a portrait of King Charles and dad Prince William on the big day, where he oozed confidence despite his youth.

Inbaal Honigman, a celebrity psychic and body language expert, said of the snap: “His hands are softly perched, showing that he's not tense, and he sees his public duties as a part of life.

"His smile is sweet and genuine, not a child's posed, taught smile. He's leaning towards the King and Prince William, which tells us that he feels like he's part of the team, ready to support them in whatever way they require."
