7 Reasons Prince George Will Be the Best Big Brother Ever
1. HE'S KIND TO ANIMALS
From a bilby boasting his namesake to the family dog Lupo, Prince George has made no shortage of adorable friends over the past year. Now that's he's about to acquire another lifelong pal – a younger sibling! – we have a feeling he'll extend that same kindness and gentle heart toward Prince William and Kate's new addition.
2. HE TAKES PLAYTIME SUPER SERIOUSLY
On the other hand, he doesn't always play nice, especially when toys are involved. But we're going to interpret his adorable feistiness as proof he's very, very dedicated to having fun.
3. HE HAS TALES FROM AROUND THE WORLD
Prince George proved two facts on his first royal tour: 1. He's extremely photogenic. 2. He was born to be a jetsetter! This means he'll have no shortage of new and exciting bedtime stories for his younger sibling, you know, when he perfects his speaking skills.
4. HE'LL GIVE GREAT HAND-ME-DOWNS
A cuddly stuffed wombat from Australia, a custom mini Sealegs from New Zealand, a fatted bull from Kenya. Between his April tour and, months later, his first birthday, the prince is sitting on a throne of swag. It might take some classic sibling negotiations (ahem, "I'll do the dishes for you for a week"), but we'd take out the trash for life to get our hands on those goods.
5. HE'LL STAND UP FOR HIS SIBS
Prince George is the big bro you'd want around when there's a line for the slide. Aside from that I'm-going-to-be-king thing, George was 8.6 lbs. at birth, which makes him the heaviest royal baby in 100 years. Translation: He's going to rule the swingset, and that's a lot of power if you ask us.
6. HE'S ALREADY A LADIES' MAN
Prince William and Kate said they're regularly offered potential partners for their little one … so we'll give you a minute to get over the weirdness of that statement. Anyway, this is good news for both prospective princesses and George's future sibling, who's going to benefit from all of the firstborn's relationship advice. Eventually.
7. HE'S REALLY, REALLY CUTE
Okay, so maybe this won't help Prince George embrace his changing role in the family, but we had to throw it in there!
