On Sunday, England’s Princess Kate, accompanied by her four-year-old son George and her three-year-old daughter Charlotte, was photographed with her children playing in the sun at the Beaufort Polo Club in Tetbury, Gloucestershire, while the children’s father, Prince William, was playing in the Maserati Royal Charity Polo Trophy. That would seem innocent enough, but photographs of young Prince George elicited outrage for one reason: he was playing with a toy gun.
This isn’t okay anymore… My American side here, biased maybe b/c of everyday #gunviolence in USA,but my British side agrees. No child in this day and age should look at any gun as a fun toy. This looks far too real. .(And I LOVE Prince George, don’t get me wrong!) @teamtrace pic.twitter.com/UEqtFi5WTH

It’s not a joke some people lose their lives because their children thought they played with a toy and it was a real gun !! pic.twitter.com/IBJqQrXnef

Other photographs showed young George playing with a knife and handcuffs; all part of his fascination with police. Last November, George’s father William got a request list from George for Christmas that had only one item listed: a toy police car.
