Prince William says he will support George, Charlotte or Louis if they are gay

Prince William has said he will fully support his children if they are gay.

The Duke of Cambridge said it would be ‘absolutely fine by me’ if Princes George and Louis or Princess Charlotte came out as LGBT.

He made his comments during a visit to The Albert Kennedy Trust (Akt), an LBGT charity that tackles youth homelessness.

The heir to the throne became the first member of the Royal Family to appear on the cover of gay magazine Attitude in June 2016.

He agreed to pose in order to speak out on the issue of homophobic bullying, saying: ‘No one should be bullied for their sexuality or any other reason.’

Prince William is also a long standing supporter of organisations working to combat homelessness, and is Patron of Centrepoint and The Passage.

Tim Sigsworth, chief executive at AKT, said they were ‘honoured’ to welcome the duke and his visit was the first by a member of the Royal Family to an LGBTQ youth charity.

He added: ‘The impact of homelessness is very damaging to LGBTQ young people, with high rates and incidences of mental health issues, sexual exploitation, substance misuse, HIV and sexual health issues.

‘In this 30th anniversary year of AKT, and as the first charity in the world to respond to the crisis of LGBTQ youth homelessness, today’s visit from HRH The Duke Of Cambridge is a hugely significant step forward in raising awareness of this important issue.’
