This is quite frankly the best piece of news we’ve learned about His Royal Highness Prince George in ages! We already knew Kate Middleton and Prince William‘s little boy was the most relatable royal ever given the fact he doesn’t really like going to school, opens his Christmas presents early, and can give a mean stink eye. And now, George’s all-time favorite movie has been revealed — and it’s a film kids all around the world just love!
Earlier this week, William, 35, revealed George can’t get enough of Disney’s animated adaptation of Hamlet, The Lion King. William was joined by his 35-year-old wife and little brother, Prince Harry, as they attended a Charities Forum event — the same outing where a pregnant Duchess Kate busted a move with Paddington Bear. At the event, William was grilled by a tenacious young interviewer, who wanted to know what George liked watching on TV. “He quite likes The Lion King, we’ve watched that a few times,” the royal said. So cute!

It is, of course, an incredibly appropriate choice, as the four-year-old will also one day be a king. Perhaps he can relate to the story of Simba’s coming-of-age from scrappy prince to mighty king, being guided by his adviser Zazu and learning important life lessons about courage and integrity along the way, or maybe he just likes the songs (who doesn’t?).
Apart from The Lion King, George’s other favorite things to watch include the Lego movies. “He has watched a few Lego movies as well!” William added. According to dad, George is also partial to the TV show Octonauts on the British network CBeebies. The children’s program follows Captain Barnacles and his crew on their animated underwater adventures.
William admitted that he and Kate try to keep him from getting square-eyed, limiting his TV time when they can, but it’s not easy. “Trying to keep him off the television is hard work,” he said. Frankly, we’re surprised that something about flying planes wasn’t in his top three favorites, but maybe that’s something Netflix can get commissioning now. We’re sure if something pops up, his Gan-Gan, Queen Elizabeth, will be all across it! After all, the Queen’s favorite TV show is reportedly Netflix’s breakout hit series The Crown.
