Prince George birthday: Royal’s love for ‘helicopters and volcanoes’ REVEALED
Prince George is an avid fan of helicopters, flying and all things police-related, as we reveal details about the young royal who turns five on Sunday.
At a recent polo match, George was seen showing his friends a colourful picture of a volcano eruption he drew, as he proudly waved the drawing around while he played with his cousin, Savannah Phillips and little sister, Princess Charlotte.
George’s dream is to become a pilot, just like his father, Prince William, who flew with the East Anglian Air Ambulance.
However, the future king, who is currently third-in-line to the throne, will soon realise that his life choices are somewhat restricted.
The shy prince is known to be reluctant in the spotlight, unlike Charlotte, who proudly waves at photographers and even gave them a cheeky remark at Prince Louis’ christening.
Speaking about George’s nervous look, particularly on his first day of school, a friend of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge said: “Just because he reacts more cautiously than Charlotte when there is a camera around isn’t an indication of what he is like behind closed doors.
“Your first day at school is a big enough deal without all these strange people watching you. He is a very happy little boy.”
In the past year, George has appeared in several royal events – including a cheeky moment with his cousin on Buckingham Palace’s balcony during the Queen’s official birthday celebrations.
The young prince has officially finished his first year of school at Thomas’ Battersea in London, expressing a vast range of interests in planes, trains, cars and volcanoes.
William and Kate selected Thomas Battersea for George, located in the heart of West London, in hopes their son will develop into an all-rounded individual.
A source said: “They thought long and hard about where George should be educated and really liked Thomas’s, which has a lovely nurturing atmosphere.
“The school focuses as much on helping develop the character of pupils, as what they learn. William and Kate are keen to allow George to spread his wings and make friends at this stage.
“They know there will come a time when they will have to sit down and talk to him about the implications of his royal status and why so many people are interested in him. He is becoming more aware of the cameras.
“But they are determined to do that at George’s own pace and feel that can all wait a bit.”
Prince George Alexander Louis of Cambridge was born at the private maternity wing of St Mary’s Hospital, Paddington, the Lindo Wing July 22, 2013.
He is set to become the 43rd monarch, after his grandfather Prince Charles, the Prince of Wales and his father, Prince William, the Duke of Cambridge.
