People are less than impressed with Prince William.
via: Getty ImagesFans are saying they have been left feeling "uncomfortable" after listening to a recent interview featuring the Duke.
The British Royal Family is one of most famous families in the world.
via: ShutterstockYes, even more famous than the Kardashians.
But, of the many members of the British family...
via: GettyThe Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, or William and Kate, as we know them best, are the firm favorites of the younger, more modern monarchy.
Prince William is the elder son of Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana.
via: Getty ImagesSince birth, he has been second in the line of succession to the British throne.
William began accompanying his parents on official visits at an early age.
via: Getty ImagesIn 1983, he accompanied them on a tour to Australia and New Zealand, a decision made by his mom, Diana. At the time, the move was considered to be unconventional because the first- and second-in-line to the throne would be traveling together, and because of William's young age.
Diana wanted him and his younger brother Harry to have more experiences than are usual for royal children.
via: Getty ImagesDiana notably took her sons to Walt Disney World and McDonald's, as well as AIDS clinics, and homeless shelters. She even bought them items typically owned by teenagers, such as video games.
William was educated at 4 schools in the UK and studied for a degree at the University of St Andrews.
via: Getty ImagesLike many of us, he even had a gap year, during which he spent time in Chile, Belize, and Africa.
But, on 31 August 1997, tragedy struck.
via: Getty ImagesThe car that Diana was traveling in through the Pont L’Alma tunnel in Paris suffered a horrendous crash. Diana was taken to the nearby Pitie-Salpetriere Hospital, where she was pronounced dead. The exact cause of the crash has long been up for debate, with some questioning the sobriety of the driver, and others blaming the irresponsible driving of paparazzi photographers.
William and Harry were left without their mother.
via: Getty ImagesOver the years, as the boys have grown into men, William and Harry have ensured Diana's memory hasn't been forgotten, and regularly speak fondly of their late mom, who would have now been a grandma to 4 grandchildren.
William and Kate have long been royal favorites.Following their lavish, and highly documented royal wedding in 2011, Wills and Kate were thrown into the media spotlight, and we still can't get enough of them.
They met while studying at university.
Though their relationship was on and off for years...
via: Getty ImagesThey clearly couldn't stay away from each other, and their engagement was announced in 2010, 9 years after they first met.
And, ever since, we have followed them as their own little family grew.In July 2013, Prince George Alexander Louis of Cambridge was born, becoming the third in line to the throne of Great Britain. Kate emerged from St. Mary's hospital in London in a blue polka dot dress, which many saw as a fitting tribute to Princess Diana, who wore a similar spotty attire herself some thirty-one years earlier.
Princess Charlotte followed shortly after.
via: Getty ImagesPrincess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana was born in May 2015, just under 2 years after her older brother.
The princess has actually made royal history.
via: Getty ImagesPrincess Charlotte became the first female royal to retain her claim to the throne, despite having a younger brother.
Before the Succession to the Crown Act 2013...
Traditionally, Prince Louis would have overtaken Charlotte in the line to the throne.
via: Getty ImagesBut, now that Princess Charlotte hasn't been ruled out by gender, Prince Louis remains fifth-in-line to the throne, while Charlotte is fourth-in-line behind her older brother, Prince George.
So, as you can see...
via: GettyWilliam and Kate really are paving the path to a more modern monarchy.
But this week, Prince William has got on the wrong side of fans.
via: Getty ImagesWilliam appeared as a guest on the Peter Crouch Podcast for the BBC, but it seems not all fans were happy about it.
The Duke appeared on the episode to chat all things football, lockdown, and mental health.
via: TwitterWilliam has always been keen to use his voice to speak out about mental health. "We're hoping that renaming it is a big enough statement that the UK will show the world, and the football world in particular, that mental health really matters," he says to Crouch during the podcast.
But, not everyone enjoyed William's stint on the show.
via: TwitterBecause as soon as the clips reached Twitter, people instantly began to troll him.
Reactions well and truly poured in...
