Prince George had the sweetest request for dad Prince William

Prince George had the sweetest request from dad Prince William when his dad flew over to Cyprus...

Kate and William headed to Cyprus earlier this week to celebrate Christmas with serving personnel at the Royal Air Force base in Akrotiri.

The day before they also had a Christmas party for the families of those who work at the base, at Kensington Palace, which George and Charlotte SADLY couldn’t attend.

The two little royals were at school but William also confessed to guests that it would be hard to juggle his royal duties with looking after his children.

But before the pair headed out to fly to Cyprus, Prince George had a very sweet request for William. When speaking to personnel at the base, William revealed that his the prince asked him to take a picture of any helicopters he saw – how cute!

William said during the royal engagement: ‘I told George this morning we were going to see the pilots today, and he said, “If you see a helicopter, can you take a picture?”‘

George’s obsession with helicopters is not new, as he was clearly very amused back in 2017, when he got to visit a helicopter in Hamburg, Germany.

The young royal was shown around by his dad, who is a trained pilot and has worked as a full-time pilot with the RAF Search and Rescue Force.

At the time, Antoine van Gent, Airbus’ head of flight testing, told The Telegraph: ‘George was excited, with the first helicopter he wanted to sit in the cockpit and then he wanted to sit in the next one, he already knew there was a difference between them.

‘Charlotte was also excited, after her brother had sat in the cockpit she wanted to as well. Charlotte asked her mother if she could push a button and the duchess glanced at us and asked if it was ok and we said yes.’

We really hope Wills took that picture…
