Cambridges slammed for allowing Prince George to play with toy gun

Kate Middleton takes George and Charlotte to watch William in polo match

Prince George plays with toy gun at the polo

Savannah Phillips and Prince George of Cambridge watch the flypast on the balcony of Buckingham Palace during Trooping The Color on June 9, 2018 in London.

Though it was Prince William's time to shine while competing in the Maserati Royal Charity Polo Trophy Sunday, it was Princess Charlotte who stole the show. As Prince George began talking, Savannah nonchalantly placed her hand over his mouth to silence him and looked directly into the camera as she did so.

However, images of young George wielding a toy gun (and a toy knife) spoiled the mood online.

After the pictures emerged, several people took to Twitter to voice their outrage and suggest that the royal family should have been more mindful about the toys they give Prince George and Princess Charlotte. "THAT is #girlpower", one person wrote. Several users dismissed the criticism, arguing they themselves had toy guns as kids, and that such play does not encourage violence. No child in this day and age should look at any gun as a fun toy.

Part of the event was an open house for the emergency services that included an air ambulance vehicle that interested Prince George.

Although the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are the subjects of this criticism rather than their 4-year-old son himself, it marks the beginning of a life in which no action of the future monarch's will pass without intense media scrutiny.

On a visit to Finland last November, William met Father Christmas in Helsinki and was on a mission to present Santa Claus with a Christmas list from George, which featured one request - a toy police vehicle.

While the adult Royals make headlines with every little move, the tiny tots of the family have managed to keep the world wooed with their adorable antics.
