Sir David gave George a fossil tooth from a giant shark, which proved to be a hit.

"When I was his age, I remember being given fossils by a grown-up, so I thought I would do the same," he said. "[George asked] What it was? How big it was? And so on. He was certainly very interested. He seemed to like it. He is very interested in fossils. She [Charlotte] was too. All three seemed charming."

The time Prince George called himself Archie!

According to The Sun, a dog walker came across the royal children and their grandmother Carole while they were playing by a stream near the Middleton family home in Berkshire in 2019.

The woman, who did not want to be named, said: "I was asked by a police minder not to take a photo of the children, which I didn't, but George started stroking my dog. Just to be friendly I engaged in a bit of small talk and I asked George what his name was, even though obviously I knew it."

The woman continued: "To my astonishment, he said 'I'm called Archie' with a big smile on his face. I don't know why he calls himself Archie but kids often play with their names and I think it's lovely."

After waving at hundreds of well-wishers, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge boarded a seaplane in Victoria, British Columbia where three-year-old George was treated to one last excitement.

The young royal was invited into the cockpit of the seaplane where he was given the chance - under guidance - to play with some of the controls.

Pilot Shawn Stewart revealed George's passion for flying, telling The Mirror: "After we landed, once the co-pilot got out, George climbed up into the seat and started playing with the controls and pretending he was flying the plane.

"Kate said: 'Where are you going to fly us? Are you going to fly us to Canada?' "And George said: 'No I'm going to fly us to England.' George loved it. He was having fun."
