‘So upset’ Prince William tells of George’s adorable hobby as he and Kate meet python


PRINCE GEORGE will be green with envy when he finds out about Prince William and Kate’s latest day out.

Kate previously revealed in a video call how first-born George is a big fan of snakes.

And, as he held the snake, William confirmed this, noting how George, eight, in particular was going to be upset when he heard the news.

William was also heard saying to Kate that his other children – Princess Charlotte, six, and Prince Louis, three, would not believe it.

William said: “George is going to be so upset.

“The children are not going to believe I did this.”

William was hugely impressed by the snake, saying that it was “very soft” to the touch.

He was also informed that the snake was female.

The family’s love of reptiles is well-documented.

In a question put to Sir David Attenborough, Charlotte previously showed her love for spiders. She asked the explorer: “Hello David Attenborough. I like spiders, do you like spiders too?”

And, during the coronavirus pandemic, Kate had hinted during a charity bingo night that George was a fan of snakes.

The last time both the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visited Northern Ireland together was in March of 2019.

However, the Duchess of Cambridge visited in February 2020 to promote her Early Years survey, just weeks before the coronavirus pandemic began.

Earlier this year, the Duke and Duchess had spoken to student nurses about how they coped with their studies in Northern Ireland during the pandemic.
