Prince George's godmother keeps Princess Diana's birthday tradition alive

His birthday's coming up.

Prince George is turning eight tomorrow and usually when a birthday happens in the royal family, there's a big deal made about it.


All we're thinking is, what do you buy a child who's one day going to be the King of England?

While we might have difficulty picking something out for him, it's not a big task for one of George's seven godparents.

Following in his late grandmother's footsteps, George's godmother Julia Samuel is keeping Princess Diana's memory alive by keeping up one of her birthday traditions.

Princess Diana used to do this for Julia's son, so now it's her turn to take the lead with William's son.

Speaking on Elizabeth Day's How To Fail podcast, Julia said: "I do to George what she did to us and give impossible toys that are really noisy and take a lot of making.

"I come in slightly tipped by the size of the present that William then has to spend days putting together and then putting all the machinery together and then it makes awful tooting noises and lights flashing and all of that and that makes me laugh and it makes George laugh."

And she didn't stop there, Julia was full of praise for little George, saying how much Diana would have loved him, saying he's "funny and feisty and cheeky".

She added: "He’s funny and feisty and cheeky, and God, [Diana] would have loved him so much."

Prince George is turning eight tomorrow, July 22nd, and it's expected that Kate Middleton will share an unseen picture she's taken of her son.
