Is Prince George simply excited about turning 3? Or perhaps 2 is the new 3?
A recent tidbit candidly shared by his mom Kate Middleton revealed that the toddler tends to think he's older than he really is. He's just turned 2 years old last week, but he reportedly tells people he's 3.
An incident that prompted the candid revelation was one in which a little boy named Freddie Wilson approached the 33-year-old mother of two during the America's Cup World Series in England.
The boy, the son of Head Coach Rob Wilson, one of the teams' leaders, politely greeted the Duchess.
"Hello, Princess, my name is Freddie Wilson," he reportedly told her.
When the Duchess asked the boy of his age, his mother Wendy Maxwell recounted that the boy said he was 3.
"When I said he is only 2, she said, 'George says that. He thinks that he's older,'" Maxwell told reporters, as noted by Us Weekly.
Apparently, George is not the only 2-year-old with the same propensity. Do you know of any other toddler with a similar quirk?
Also, could it be that the boys think that, by celebrating their second birthdays, they're done with it and are now officially on their next age level? What do you think?
Prince George had just turned 2 July 22. His birthday party was reportedly "decidedly low-key affair," which is quite a surprise given the fact that he is third in line to the throne, as pointed out by Vanity Fair.
"George reportedly celebrated with a small get-together at Anmer Hall, in Norfolk, at William and Kate's country home," the publication went on to reveal. "Guests included-in addition to the members of his immediate family-grandparents Carole and Michael Middleton, aunt Pippa and uncle James, as well as the Queen and Prince Philip."
"Prince Charles and Camilla were not in attendance, as they are currently in the midst of a tour of the West Country, and Harry missed the soiree, as well, since he is in Namibia for a three-month visit," Vanity Fair added.
It was not know what went on during the gathering, as no announcement or social media posts have been made regarding the goings on in the party.
"It is a safe bet that they played Pin the Fascinator on the Polo Mallet, and perhaps a round of Musical Thrones," the publication speculated.
