The Duke of Cambridge has revealed he will fully support his children if they told him they are gay.

‘I think you really don’t start thinking about that until you are a parent, and I think – obviously absolutely fine by me.
‘The one thing I’d be worried about is how they – particularly the roles my children fill – is how that is going to be interpreted and seen.
‘So Catherine and I have been doing a lot of talking about it to make sure they were prepared. I think communication is so important with everything, in order to help understand it you’ve got to talk a lot about stuff and make sure how to support each other and how to go through the process.

His visit to the charity comes ahead of the annual Pride in London parade on Saturday 6 July.
