Prince William said in a statement he would support his children if they are gay with all his heart as recently had a conversation with young people who had been disowned by their own parents.
The future king, 37, talked to a group who had been left homeless because they admitted about their true self.
William was asked by the group how he would react or feel if he comes to know that his children are gay to which he replied: ‘Obviously absolutely fine by me’.
But he also admitted that in such a situation, his kids could also be ‘persecuted’ because of their positions in the Royal Family.
William was speaking to a group of people in Albert Kennedy Trust [AKT], a charity that works towards helping LBGT homeless young people.
One young gay man asked William: ‘If your child one day in the future said “oh I’m gay, oh I’m lesbian” whatever, how would you react?”.
William replied: ‘Do you know what, I’ve been giving that some thought recently because a couple of other parents said that to me as well. I think you really don’t start thinking about that until you are a parent, and I think – obviously absolutely fine by me.
He went on to say: ‘The one thing I’d be worried about is how they – particularly the roles my children fill – is how that is going to be interpreted and seen.
‘So Catherine and I have been doing a lot of talking about it to make sure they were prepared. I think communication is so important with everything, in order to help understand it you’ve got to talk a lot about stuff and make sure how to support each other and how to go through the process.
‘It worries me, not because of them being gay, it worries me as to how everyone else will react and perceive it and then the pressure is then on them.’
This is the first time a member of the royal family paid a visit to a dedicated LGBT organization. William also participated in a group discussion with several ambassadors.
The Prince donned a navy blazer and brown trousers during his visit. He also inaugurated the new services center in Hoxton.
His visit comes in recognition of the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall uprising.
