Our ultra cute and favourite royal, Prince George turns four today! To celebrate, here are 15 things you probably didn’t know about the little prince. Spoiler alert: he’s adorable.

1. He’s obsessed with airplanes, so much so that he wants to follow in his dad’s footsteps and be a pilot…

2. According to his mother, the Duchess of Cambridge, George’s favourite story book is Fireman Sam…

3. After the Queen, Prince Charles and his father Prince William, George is third in line to inherit the throne…

4. His adorable nickname for the Queen is ‘Gan-Gan’…

5. Speaking of names, his full name is His Royal Highness, George Alexander Louis…

6. George was the first royal baby whose birth was announced via press release. Normally an easel is put outside Buckingham Palace, but modernity prevails…

7. He loves wearing shorts. Even in winter…

8. Weirdly, the cute prince was obsessed with wombats when he was a baby…

9. He has a staggering seven godparents…

10. His dad thinks he’s ‘a little monkey’. In an interview just after Princess Charlotte was born, William said that ‘it is more responsibility, looking after two little ones, especially when George is around…he’s a little monkey’.

11. George is very well-travelled. At just four years old, he’s already been to the likes of Australia, New Zealand and Canada. Jealous.

12. Just like his father, George is getting a Montessori education. A what? In a nutshell a Montessori education is where children of mixed age groups are encouraged to play freely and participate in several activities. Normal school, basically.

13. He’s a cusp baby. Prince George was born at exactly 4.24 pm on July 22, so his astrological sign is technically Cancer – just like his dad and his late grandmother, Diana, Princess of Wales. Because George was just a few hours shy away from being a Leo, he’s what you call a cusp baby. A lucky critter who gets to take the finest qualities of both astrological signs.

14. He has no official place in the Order of Precedence. The what? The Order of Precedence – the order in which the royals arrive at official events, of course. For example: the Queen goes first followed by the Duke of Edinburgh and so on. While it’s assumed the little prince will become the Earl of St. Andrews, (because his father is a royal Duke) there is no defined place for him in the Order just yet.

15. He’s an influencer. Yes, really. When George wears a particular style, it sells out almost immediately. Remember when he wore that super-cute dressing gown when he met President Obama? Gone the next day. Three words: Economy-driving influencer. End of.
