“more inclusive” coronation on May 6.The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are “worried that it will be too much for” the 9-year-old, according to royal commentator Tom Quinn.The “Gilded Youth: A History of Growing Up in the Royal Family” author gave his hot take to the UK’s Express on Sunday, alleging that “there is a bit of an argument going on about whether George should play a more formal role” in the official crowning of King Charles, 74.Quinn claimed that William, 40, and Middleton, 41, are anxious over George’s role, hoping that it won’t paint a negative picture of the child in the eyes of the public.The writer also noted that the pair are uneasy about George’s role because they feel like their son could still be too young to take on a more royal duties.“It’s almost an echo of the way William and [Prince] Harry were sometimes made to attend formal occasions that they shouldn’t have been made to attend,” Quinn said, referencing how William and his younger brother, 38, undertook many royal engagements in their younger years.One of the most famous events that a teen William and an adolescent Harry were forced to endure was the 1997 funeral for their mother Princess Diana.The brothers were seen walking behind her coffin alongside the rest of the royal family.“A lot of people criticized that and said that it was a horrible thing to make two boys that young, and especially Harry, do,” Quinn said.He continued: “So I think people are remembering this and thinking, ‘Well hang on a minute, if George is some sort of a pageboy, or has a similar role at the coronation, is that going back too far towards the traditional roles?'”“There is a debate going on quite fiercely at the moment about how to do that.
