Prince George has a new toy and people aren't happy about it.
The four-year-old attended a charity polo game in which his father, Prince William, was playing. George watched the game with his sister Charlotte and mother Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge.

But when photos of the family outing surfaced, many in the UK were shocked to see George wielding a toy gun. He could be seen aiming the plastic mock-weapon at other children and his own mother.
Many social media users were upset with the prince's toy, feeling that the images sent a bad message because of the UK's surge in violent crime.
Some people didn't have a problem with George's choice of toy. Dana Loesch, a spokesperson for the National Rifle Association, tweeted that people should "leave the boy alone".
Some media outlets have reported that the gun was a water pistol that George won as a prize at the fair that accompanied the polo game.
As well as playing with the gun, George was seen frolicking on the sidelines with his sister and cousins, including seven-year-old Savannah Phillips who went viral for 'shushing' the prince at the Trooping the Colour ceremony at Buckingham Palace on Saturday (local time).
