Prince George is growing up.
Prince William and Princess Kate‘s eldest, who turns four in July, is no longer a royal baby — and as he’s gotten older, he’s developing interests and a personality that’s all his own. We know he’s serious about keeping up with the characters on his favorite TV shows (though he’s moved past Peppa Pig), he loves to go fast on his scooter and he’s got a naughty streak, according to his mom.
And during a visit to the Royal Marsden Hospital this week, William dropped a few more facts about his fun-loving son.
1. He does get screen time.
When William met a little boy named Sebastian at the Royal Marsden who could barely pull his eyes off of his Star Wars Nintendo DS game to say hello to his royal visitor, he sympathized with Sebastian’s mom, Sara. “I have exactly the same thing with George,” William said. “He’s engrossed.”
2. He loves stickers.
Chatting with another patient, Charlie Miller, who was enjoying a sticker activity, William told him: “Very impressive gluing. George likes doing his stickers. He is big into his stickers.”
3. And dinosaurs.
Like many of his fellow nearly 4-year-olds, George “likes dinosaurs,” William told Miller. (Though Kate has previously revealed that he’s an even bigger fan of pigeons.)

4. He’s noisy.
We’ve heard this much from both William and Kate before, but William continued to confirm his son’s “noisy” tendencies during the Royal Marsden visit. While speaking with Zak, 11, a patient who is a longtime royal family fan, William said “George was noisy and charging around the place,” said Zak’s mom, Stephanie Gifford.
He sounds like a king-to-be!
