Oh bless your heart! Yes, I understand - I might not necessarily agree, but I DO understand what you're saying!!!...This is the way it should happen with a gay heir/monarch. His partner should keep completely low profile in the beginning, no official titles/business/marriage..the royal in question should completely warm up to the nation by his personal work ethic and grace, then slowly, his partner will be accepted..
But none of this WILL happen all of sudden! We're all going nuts over something that frankly most likely will not happen and if it does, based on statistics alone, it's going to be years - if at all - before a gay heir/monarch comes into existance. Assuming one does and on their 18th Birthday they announce their sexuality to the world, they're hardly going to immediately go off the very next day and get married and find a surrogate or adopt are they?! They'll be British royalty for goddness sake - finding anyone to marry a British royal gay, straight or indifferent, is difficult enough as it is, let alone one suddenly appearing the very minute they've come out!
It all makes me think that the individual concerned - the gay heir - is going to have to be exceptional in the way they deal with their sexuality and how they reconcile it to the outside world. I know for sure that they will not be stereotypically gay, and that they will be supported on all sides and that they will not wish to scare the horses in any way and that they will be very careful in their choice of partner.
