Prince George had a sassy comeback when he got into a scuff with one of his peers at school, a royal expert claimed.

The youngster became second in line for the throne at the age of nine earlier this month after his great-grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, passed away, and according to one royal expert, already understands what his future has in store for him.

The prince reportedly told his fellow students at the elite Lambrook School in Berkshire: "My dad will be king so you better watch out."

And in her new book The New Royals, journalist and author Katie Nicholl said that all three of the Prince and Princess of Wales' children were being brought up with a "sense of duty" and an understanding of the monarchy.

"They are raising their children, particularly Prince George, with an awareness of who he is and the role he will inherit, but they are keen not to weigh them down with a sense of duty,' Nicholl wrote.

"George understands he will one day be king and as a little boy sparred with friends at school, outdoing his peers with the killer line: 'My dad will be king so you better watch out.'"

She added that Kate Middleton in particular admired the way in which Prince Edward and the Countess of Wessex were able to raise their two children, Lady Louise Windsor, 18, and James, Viscount Severn, 14, relatively far out of the public eye despite the fact that both of their parents are working royals.

Last year in a new chapter of the updated book Battle of Brothers, royal author Robert Lacey described how to tell George about his future role at a "controlled moment of their choice" and said they chose a time "around his seventh birthday" to have the conversation.

The pair had reportedly held off having the discussion with George as the first wanted to give him a "normal family upbringing".

"William has not revealed to the world how and when he broke the big news to his son," Lacey wrote.

"Maybe one day George will tell us the story himself. But sometime around the boy's seventh birthday in the summer of 2020 it is thought that his parents went into more detail about what the little prince's life of future royal 'service and duty' would particularly involve."
