Like father, like son! Prince George is “obsessed” with tractors and trucks

Prince George has developed a newfound love for anything with "big wheels" thanks to an exciting (and expensive!) new toy.

According to new report from The Sun the future king of England is quite fond of all things mechanic.

The publication claims after receiving a miniature toy tractor, the two-year-old has enjoyed many hours driving the small truck around Anmer Hall, his parents’ country house in Norfolk.

Curious George! The young prince adores anything with “big wheels”, according to Duchess Catherine.

While Duchess Catherine was making appearances in North Wales last week, she revealed that George is “obsessed” with tractors, trucks, and anything with “big wheels”.

But it’s not just big wheels that tickle the tot’s fancy – he’s also showing a love for helicopters.

While speaking to Pauline Hallett of Ogwen Mountain Rescue, Catherine shared George’s growing passion for helicopters.

“Catherine said how much George loved them. He knows all the different colours and asks her about all the parts. She laughed and said she tells George to ask Daddy as she has no idea.”

It appears that the royal apple doesn’t fall far from the tree – Prince William worked as an RAF search and rescue pilot in Anglesey before he and Catherine moved to London and Norfolk, and now volunteers as a pilot for charity East Anglian Air Ambulance.
