Bold claims, we know, but hear us out. In case you forgot, last year Prince William’s eldest son asked for just one gift — a police car — in his handwritten note to Father Christmas. We speculated that he wanted a toy police car but, hey, when you’re royalty, dream big and ask for the real thing.
Well ... police cars? So 2017.
Flash forward to this year and there’s still no official palace announcement on what the little one wants for Christmas (or what his sassy little sister wants). We know the royals try not to spoil their kids, but it’s also not clear if they're taking this Bravoleb’s no Santa-route for 7-month-old Prince Louis.
Anyway, while knowing the young royal’s affinity for modes of transportation, this year we're 100 percent convinced he must want a helicopter.
Exhibit A: On Dec. 5, upon learning that his pops was going to visit a military base in Cyprus, they had this sweet interaction: “I told George this morning we were going to see the pilots today,” Prince William explained to a group of British soldiers (per Harper’s Bazaar). “And he said, ‘If you see a helicopter can you take a picture?’”
We’re using creative license and assuming he really meant to add: “And do me a solid and bring me back one?”
There have to be some to spare on that base, right?
Exhibit C: If Prince George was already described as helicopter crazy then, well, on his fifth birthday this year, it was reported that his dream is to become a pilot, just like his father, Prince William, who flew helicopters with the East Anglian Air Ambulance.
Here’s hoping we get a glimpse of the young royal’s list for Santa soon but, if not, send all the helicopters to Sandringham Palace in Norfolk, care of His Royal Highness Prince George Alexander Louis of Cambridge.
This is a kind of helicopter parenting that anyone can support, after all.
