When we were kids, we would have loved nothing more than to have featured in our favourite TV show.
That dream of ours is actually a reality for Prince George, who made a cameo in one of his favourite programmes after the creators discovered he was a huge fan.
The eight-year-old son of Prince William and Kate Middleton adores the popular children’s programme Fireman Sam – something that has been confirmed by Kate, 39, before.
Speaking on BBC Radio One, the Duchess of Cambridge explained that Fireman Sam “has taken an awful lot of interest.”
Kate added that George also adores helicopters, which have also featured on the BBC children’s programme – an interest he has likely picked up from seeing his father, who previously worked as a search and rescue helicopter pilot.
Upon hearing the news, the delighted creators of Fireman Sam decided to create a special episode based upon Prince George’s interests.
For the show’s 30th anniversary in 2018, an episode titled The Prince of Pontypandy sees an unnamed prince fly in to the fictional Welsh village where Fireman Sam is set.
Tasked with organising an event for the very special visitor, the villagers get ready – but disaster strikes when a character falls down a ravine.
Luckily, the prince himself comes to the rescue, saving the villager himself in his helicopter.
As a tribute, the villagers give the prince a toy helicopter.
This is too adorable for words!
In other royal news, Prince George and his sister, Princess Charlotte quizzed television royalty David Attenborough on the environment, marking the first time we’ve ever heard the young royals speak.
Prince George asked the 94-year-old what animal he thought was going to become extinct next, while Princess Charlotte revealed she “loved” spiders – and wondered if David liked spiders too.
