Prince George's toy gun sparks outrage

Prince George's toy gun sparks outrage

The kids also got to play polo themselves.

The event marked Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's first appearance together following their rumored honeymoon. Little George couldn't help but be shocked when seven-year-old Savannah got exhausted of the royal trying to sit with her and gave him a little push which sent him tumbling down the grassy hill, dropping his drawing.

But while many criticized the fact that the little prince was allowed to play with a plastic gun, the debate has been ongoing as others have risen to the defense of children playing with such toys.

Footage, posted to Twitter by royal fans, shows Princess Charlotte clapping on the balcony at Buckingham Palace after the traditional fly past. "THAT is #girlpower", one person wrote.

Another user suggested the controversy was a case of "political correctness gone mad, while another asked: "So what if Prince George was playing with a gun????"

Prince George was sent tumbling down a hill over the weekend as his cousin Savannah Philips gave him a push. He and Kate also spent time playing with a rainbow slinky.




But pictures from the day depicting George brandishing a toy gun cast a shadow on an otherwise happy day.

But the prince and princess were clearly having far too much fun to actually sit down and watch the match.

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 auto.

Many balked at the toys, given Britain's knife- and gun-related violence, which is "rising at an accelerating pace", according to the U.K. Guardian.

"She was trying to get them exhausted before they had to get back in the auto to leave".
