The birth of Prince George to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge marked a new chapter in their lives and in royal history. This fourth-in-line to the throne has a special destiny - he will carry the monarchy forward - perhaps into the next century. With a home in Kensington Palace, and time with Kate's more ordinary Middleton family, this royal heir will be raised as no other. Prince George connects a royal dynasty with Kate's more modest origins and both sides will influence his upbringing - as will the humanitarian legacy of his late grandmother, Princess Diana. The birth of George has turned William and Kate from a couple into parents with high expectations for the future. They will have to fulfil demanding roles as working royals while bringing up their son.
