George is quite the little cutie and over the last three years William and Kate have shared little nuggets of information on what life is like with their first born.

Just like his dad – Prince George loves aeroplanes

Kate has often spoken about George’s love of anything that flies and how little George always asks for toy planes and helicopters when they go to the shops.

He adores tractors too

George loves driving around his London palace in a toy tractor. Prince Harry revealed in an interview with Ant and Dec recently: “I can always hear the wheels of those plastic tractors that George loves playing on.”

George is a big fan of Fireman Sam

When mum Kate opened a Children’s Hospice in Norfolk, England she bought George a £2 Fireman Sam book, telling staff: “Fireman Sam is George’s favourite.”

But children’s favourite ‘The Gruffalo’ is also a favourite in the palace

Dad William told children in Pegasus Primary School in Oxford that both his children love the big grizzly bear.

George looks to dad William for style inspiration

George is quite the little trend-setter. He’s managed to do the impossible and make his dad’s old clothes look cool.

The third to the throne has brains to burn too. Actress Sophie Winkleman’s daughter Maud had a play date with George at Kensington Palace she said: “He is a very clever, articulate little boy and was speaking long before other toddlers his age.”

Dad William thinks George is quite the ‘little monkey’

Two months after Charlotte was born, in July 2015, William said in an interview about his children: “It is more responsibility, looking after two little ones, especially when George is around. “He’s a little monkey.”

But Charlotte is quickly following suit

Kate says Princess Charlotte is very cute but has ‘feisty side,’ and she hopes her big brother George will keep her in order.

George has a special name for the Queen

During an interview with ITV to celebrate the Queen’s 90th birthday, mum Kate revealed George calls her ‘Gan-Gan.’

George loves to embarrass his uncle Harry

When the Obamas visited Kensington Palace in May, Michelle Obama revealed how George repeatedly asked: “Uncle Harry, why are you so quiet?”
Harry admitted sheepishly: “So embarrassing…(I was on my) best behaviour, I’m normally throwing him around the room and stuff.”

Happy birthday chubby cheeks!
