Prince George's godmother has revealed she is carrying on a tradition started by his late grandmother, Princess Diana.
Julia Samuels, an old friend of Princess Diana and godmother to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's eldest son Prince George, recently appeared on the How To Fail With Elizabeth Day podcast and touched on her relationship with Prince William’s three children.
Samuels revealed her gift-giving tradition for Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis is one she borrowed from Diana.
“I do to George what [Diana] did to us, which is give impossible toys that are really noisy and take a lot of making,” she said.
She said: “William then has to spend days putting together. And then put all the machinery together, and it makes awful tooting noises and lights flashing and all of that.”
According to Samuels, the process of putting together the noisy toys gives the Cambridge family a good laugh.
She said watching William struggle to assemble the toys “makes me laugh, and it makes George laugh.”
She said that George's feistiness would have been a big hit with his late grandmother: “He’s funny and feisty and cheeky, and God, [Diana] would have loved him so much.”
Gifts that make the Royal family members giggle isn’t just a tradition passed down from Princess Diana, as every year at Sandringham the Royal family reportedly give each other joke gifts.
Kate is said to have bought Prince Harry a 'grow your own girlfriend' kit one year for Christmas while Meghan was rumoured to have bought the Queen a singing hamster, which she apparently adored.
