Prince George’s Obsession with the Police Is Only Getting Stronger
William explains the 4-year-old’s fascination.
There are many enticing and dynamic royal-family “plotlines” in action at the moment—Kate Middleton will be giving birth soon, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will be getting married, controversy brews as Camilla and Charles prepare to eventually take over the crown. But right up there with the rest of ‘em is the ongoing saga involving . . . Prince George’s obsession with the police.
You’ll remember that back in December, Prince William handed a handwritten list to a Finnish Santa Claus on behalf of his 4-year-old son, in which George listed just one item he wanted for Christmas: a police car. And then on Tuesday, William and Harry attended a reception at Kensington Palace honoring those who work in Scotland Yard, and William confirmed that—rest assured—months later, George is still just as infatuated.
Police commissioner Jayne Richardson told William that there are more officers needed in the district, joking, “We are recruiting, actually, so if George and Charlotte are keen?”
William responded, “[George] is obsessed, actually, by the police . . . cars, toys, everything.”
Where is this George and the police story line going to take us? Will we ever get to see a Halloween portrait of George dressed as a small policeman? Will Markle, in an effort to ingratiate herself to her soon-to-be nephew, let him wear some sort of police badge for his duties in her wedding? What does Princess Charlotte make of all of this? Is she obsessed with police cars? We will all, as ever, have to stay tuned.
