Prince William Says He'd Be 'Absolutely Fine' With LGBTQ Child

Prince William Says He'd Be 'Absolutely Fine' With LGBTQ Child”

PRINCE WILLIAM says he wouldn't have a problem if either of his three children turned out to be gay.

Prince William did share that he would still be anxious for his children since their lives are so public.

William made the comment on Wednesday while visiting a London nonprofit group that works with young LGBT people who are homeless or living in hostile environments.

The anniversary commemorates the moment when patrons of a gay bar in New York City s Greenwich Village called the Stonewall Inn rose up in defiance of police harassment, which led to a worldwide movement for equal rights for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and other queer people.

He confessed he had been asked by a lot of parents what his view on the topic was.

"I'm anxious about the pressure - as you all know - they're going to face and how much harder their life could be", he said.

William said he and his wife, Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge, have discussed the matter to make sure their children were prepared. "I wish we lived in a world where, like you said, it's really normal and cool". "And so, it is something I'm nervous about, not because I'm anxious about them being gay or anything, it's more about the fact that I'm anxious about the pressures ... that they're gonna face, and how much harder their life could be".

"Do you know what, I've been giving that some thought recently because a couple of other parents said that to me as well", William replied via Express. "But that's for all of us to try and help correct and make sure that we can put that to the past", he said.

Tim Sigsworth, AKT's CEO, said the fact a future monarch would support their children if they came out as LGBTQ sent "a message to the whole of society" and would "make a massive difference".
