William was asked during a group discussion Wednesday at the Albert Kennedy Trust, a London nonprofit group that works with young LBGTQ people, “If your child one day in the future said, ‘Oh I’m gay, oh I’m lesbian’ whatever, how would you react?”
The future King of England replied, “Obviously, absolutely fine by me," according to the Associated Press.
William and his wife Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, have three kids: 5-year-old Prince George; 4-year-old Princess Charlotte; and 1-year-old Prince Louis.
William said that although he would support his kids, he would worry about the pressure they would face as a gay member of Britain's royal family.
"It worries me not because of them being gay," he said. "It worries me as to how everyone else will react and perceive it, and then the pressure is then on them.”
William's visit to Albert Kennedy Trust was the first time a member of the royal family has visited an LGBTQ+ youth charity, according to the Trust, which offers support to young LGBTQ+ people who are homeless or living in hostile environments.
William visited the charity to open a new services center in the Hoxton district of London, which will host drop-in sessions for young people.

The Duke of Cambridge met the founder of Albert Kennedy Trust and met with LBGTQ+ youth who are supported by the charity.
London will hold its annual Pride parade on July 6.
William has at least one publicly out member of his family. Queen Elizabeth II's cousin, Lord Ivar Mountbatten, and his partner James Coyle last year became the first royal same-sex couple to get married, according to the BBC.
