The Mail on Sunday published an excerpt of Katie Nicholl's upcoming book "The New Royals."
Nicholl reported that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's step back impacted Prince William's kids.
The children are in the spotlight more than he and Kate Middleton intended, according to the excerpt.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's step back impacted Prince William's children, according to a new book.
The Mail on Sunday published an excerpt of "The New Royals: Queen Elizabeth's Legacy and the Future of the Crown," an upcoming book by royal expert Katie Nicholl.
In the excerpt, Nicholl wrote that Harry and Meghan's step back had ramifications on the whole royal family, but that it specifically "put a significantly greater royal burden" on William and Kate Middleton and how they are raising their children.
Royal historian Robert Lacey told Nicholl that Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis' public appearances in recent years indicate the Prince and Princess of Wales shifted their approach to parenting in the wake of Meghan and Harry's step back.
"We've seen the children performing in front of the cameras in a way that cannot have been part of the original plan," he told Nicholl.
"We know that William and Kate want to bring up their children in relative seclusion and privacy, but the children have had to become a prominent part of the show," he added.
Their most notable appearances in 2022 include George and Charlotte's attendance at a memorial service for Prince Philip, the trio's attendance at the Queen's Platinum Jubilee celebrations in June, and George and Charlotte's presence at the late monarch's funeral.
The royal children were also photographed with their parents on their first day at Lambrook School — which would turn out to be the day before the Queen's death.
But Kate and William still seem to be shielding their children from too much publicity, given their recent relocation.
The Waleses moved from London to Windsor Castle, partially to give the children a "normal" life, according to an anonymous source who spoke to CNN.
Nicholl also wrote that William has not been able to forgive Harry for stepping back for numerous reasons, including the impact Harry's choices have had on his family.
But the pair were seen together throughout the Queen's funeral services, with William inviting Harry and Meghan to a walkabout with him and Kate at Windsor Castle and the brothers walking side by side as they processed behind their grandmother's casket.
