Prince George was pictured yesterday (June 10) holding something that has people up in arms (for lack of better terms).
The little Prince was with his sister Princess Charlotte and his mother the Duchess of Cambridge watching his father participate in a charity polo match.
George was pictured playing with a toy gun at the event.

The photo has sparked some outrage, with many finding the choice of toy to be inappropriate for a royal, a child, and a public event.
Americans and Brits alike have chimed in on the subject, with many citing recent school shootings and shootings in other public areas as reason enough to not give children toy guns to play with.
This isn’t okay anymore... My American side here, biased maybe b/c of everyday #gunviolence in USA,but my British side agrees. No child in this day and age should look at any gun as a fun toy. This looks far too real. .(And I LOVE Prince George, don’t get me wrong!) @teamtrace pic.twitter.com/UEqtFi5WTH— Daisy Torme (@daisytorme) June 10, 2018
Prince George plays with a toy gun. His sister plays with her sunglasses. Nothing stereotypical about that is there ...?— Chris Ship (@chrisshipitv) June 10, 2018
