Prince William says he would 'fully support' his children if they were gay

Speaking to reporters recently, Prince William confirmed that he would give his full support to any of his children if they were to come out as gay.

He made these comments during a visit to the Albert Kennedy Trust, a charity designed to help homeless LGBTQ youths.

After his appearance at the charity in London, the charity confirmed that this was the first time a member of the royal family had visited an LGBTQ youth charity.

The Prince's comments came after one man asked him the question: "If your child one day in the future said, ‘Oh I’m gay, oh I’m lesbian,’ whatever, how would you react".

That's when the royal replied that it would be "absolutely fine by me," with the addendum that he was anxious over any potential backlash to such an event.

“Do you know what, I’ve been giving that some thought recently because a couple of other parents said that to me as well," he said, as reported by the Telegraph.

"I think you really don’t start thinking about that until you are a parent, and I think: obviously absolutely fine by me. 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 where 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.”

While Prince Williams' comments shouldn't be revolutionary by 2019, it does go a long way for a member of the British Royal family to take a stance such as this. Hopefully he continues to do good work with the AKT charity!
