Prince William reveals George’s favourite film and TV show

It's a battle for the remote at Kensington Palace

You know what it’s like with young kids. You can spend all day reading with them, doing crafts or playing games.

But sometimes they want nothing more than to crash out in front of the telly and watch some brightly coloured nonsense.

It’s good to know that even the Royal family have the same issues with their tots – as Prince William revealed in an interview yesterday.

Speaking to a young boy on a British Pullman Train at Paddington station in London, the second-in-line to the throne revealed that Prince George loves animated entertainment.

When asked what George’s favourite film is, the Duke of Cambridge replied: “He quite likes the Lion King, he’s watched that quite a few times.”

William and pregnant Kate were meeting with 130 children from around a dozen of the 30 organisations supported by their royal charities forum.

And Wills was happy to answer questions from the young passenger, also revealing that George was fond of TV series Octonauts.

Adding later: “He has watched some Lego movies as well.”

And he revealed that he and Kate have similar issues to other parents when thinking about how much TV their toddler should be allowed to watch.

The Duke said: “Trying to keep him off television is hard work – not too much TV.”

The event was also notable for the Duchess of Cambridge showing off the merest hint of a bump, after announcing her pregnancy in September.

We have to say, we applaud George’s choices in TV watching – The Lion King is an absolute classic, and even Octonauts isn’t bad for grown-up viewers.
