Prince William has opened up at a recent event on the naughty habits of his eldest son George, revealing he has already been caught opening some of his Christmas presents early!
The Duke of Cambridge attended an event hosted by youth charity The Mix in North Kensington on Monday morning, accompanied by his wife The Duchess of Cornwall and his brother Prince Harry.
Speaking to KISS FM presenter AJ King, at what will be the royal family’s last engagement before Christmas, William opened up with a cute anecdote about what life is really like for the royals at Christmas.
It turns out that all little boys can be ‘rascals’, even if they’re princes, as Prince William admitted he caught cheeky Prince George trying to open his Christmas presents early.
Just after the event, AJ said, ‘I had a really nice chat with Prince William who told me that this was their last week at work, as it were, before Christmas.
‘He said they were all really excited about it and that George is already opening his presents. He thought it a quite funny. That’s kids for you, even the ones that are princes!’
‘I said Christmas would be a bit different for his children this year and he said they would be having a family Christmas together.’
The DJ also commented on how Prince William was admiring his turntables, apparently saying he wanted some of his own before asking to hearing a song from Groove Armada.
Prince William, 34, had only recently spoken about what it’s been like having children of his own, joking about the mischief little ones can get up to.
‘George is a right little rascal sometimes, he keeps me on my toes but he’s a sweet boy. Bearing in mind I haven’t had a sister, having a daughter is a very different dynamic. So I’m learning about having a daughter, having a girl in the family.’
This year it is said that The Duke and Duchess will be celebrating Christmas as a family with Kate’s family in Bucklebury, Berks, rather than the traditional royal get-together at Sandringham.
