Some People Are Not Impressed That Prince George Was Allowed To Play With Toy Gun

The Duchess of Cambridge, Prince George and Princess Charlotte were snapped yesterday, while out watching the Duke of Cambridge take part in a charity polo match.

The cute family photos appeared online shortly afterwards but not everyone was impressed with little George's choice of toy.

The four-year-old was photographed pointing a toy gun around while out with the family, but many people flocked to social media to condemn the royals for allowing the little boy to play with a 'violent' toy:

Others took a more laid-back stance:

The family aren't strangers to weaponry, with George's dad and uncle both having served time in the military - and lets not forget that the royals also hunt using guns, so maybe he's just getting himself a headstart.

Prince George, who reportedly already has a big interest in the police, also had a toy knife and a pair of handcuffs. Quite the killer collection, kid.


The fuss comes after Raheem Sterling was slammed by many for getting a controversial M16 assault rifle inked on his leg.

The player said the tattoo had a deeper meaning, as his dad died after being shot when Raheem was just two years old. He said he had vowed to 'never touch a gun', adding he that he shoots on the pitch with his right foot before adding that the etching wasn't actually finished yet.

However, Lucy Cope, founder of Mothers Against Guns, called the tattoo 'totally unacceptable'.

The FA has stuck by the star, with a spokesperson telling Sky News: "We all support Raheem Sterling and acknowledge the honest and heartfelt account he gave via Instagram last night.]

"He and the rest of the squad are focused solely on preparing for the forthcoming World Cup."

What do you guys reckon? Should little George been given a more 'peaceful' toy to play with or is this all a big noise over nothing?
