The surprising song that the Cambridges wake up to every morning

All thanks to football-mad Prince George!

Most of us wake up to the sound of an alarm in the morning but not so in the Cambridge household.
At the home of Prince William, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, and their three children, George, Charlotte and Louis, they wake to the strains of... a football song.
Yes, that's right. According to British comedian Frank Skinner, who co-wrote the lyrics to the hit football song, Three Lions, the Cambridges wake up every morning to Three Lions. He told The Mirror that he found this out after meeting Prince William at the Royal Variety Show.
When William spoke to Frank, he confided: "I listen to your song every morning. Honestly, George plays it every morning ever since the World Cup. I thought it would fade away but it hasn't. He still plays it every day."
Three Lions was released in 1996 by the English band The Lightning Seeds to mark the England football team's hosting of that year's European Championships. Frank Skinner and fellow comedian David Baddiel provided the lyrics.
And according to Prince William, the song is now one of his son's favourites.
At the tender age of six Prince George is already said to be football-mad. He attended his first football game in October with his parents and younger sister Princess Charlotte, and by his reactions shown in the video above, he clearly loved it.
The game was between Prince William's favourite team Aston Villa and Norwich City, with Aston Villa ultimately securing a win 5-1.
Kensington Palace shared the adorable video of the six-year-old, sporting an Aston Villa t-shirt, jumping up and down in excitement, on social media.
When Prince George turned six in July Kensington Palace shared three photographs of the future King - which were taken by his mother, Duchess Catherine - and in two of them he sported the official England football team's jersey. This was much to the approval of the team, of course.

Earlier this year his mother, Catherine, told a group of students during a visit to a football stadium in Northern Ireland that George was learning to play football and practiced at home - although he didn't think much of his mum's football skills.
The Duchess of Cambridge told the students that George told her, "Mummy, you're so rubbish".
