A brief history of Prince George peering through windows

Section: Trending

Fact: Prince George peering through windows is the best Prince George of all. 

What was Prince George, a well-documented devotee of shorts and fan of Fireman Sam, thinking about as he squished his nose against the aeroplane window and looked down through the glass, about to fly home from the royal tour of Canada?

Was he surveying the land that will one day be his, like Simba looking down from Pride Rock? Was he internally bemoaning the royal plane's lack of in-flight entertainment options?

Given that the Prince was a. three years old at the time and b. probably distracted by the sheer majesty of his noise-cancelling headphones, we’ll never know for sure. 

So here's to Prince George, most relatable of royals. May he stare thoughtfully through windows for many, many years to come.
