Prince William and George 'adore' this hobby, but Charlotte and Louis aren't interested

Prince William has revealed the exciting hobby that he and his son, eight-year-old Prince George, bond over. But, he admitted his other two children aren't quite as into it.

During a visit to the BAFTA's headquarters in London yesterday, where the 39-year-old royal launched a bursary scheme to "supercharge" the careers of people from under-represented groups who want to make a name for themselves in the gaming, film and television industry, Prince William tried out a video game.

Whilst he was playing, he revealed that his son Prince George is pretty fond of playing too, although six-year-old Charlotte and three-year-old Prince Louis aren't old enough to really enjoy it yet. "They're fascinated by it," the Duke of Cambridge said. "George particularly. He's more interested in it. The other two are a bit too small at the moment but they love the films. I adore film and gaming as well."

Like many parents, he pointed out what a struggle it can be trying to limit his and Kate Middleton's three children's screen time. "At the moment it's trying to regulate the gaming... monitoring screen time," he told staff at the HQ. "Got to be careful of that."

But, as far as too much screen time goes, it doesn't seem like the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have to stress all that much – given how vocal they've been about their children's love of the outdoors.

On a recent visit to an on-campus zoo at Ulster University, Prince William held a snake and let on that his son George wouldn't be too happy about it. "George is obsessed with snakes, he’s going to be so upset he missed this," he told the snake's handler. "The children are not going to believe I did this."

Back in 2018, the Cambridge kids' love of nature came up in conversation once again. Whilst on a visit to Sayers Croft Forest School and Wildlife Garden in Paddington, Kate revealed that she spends "hours" hunting for spiders in the garden with the kids [via HELLO!].

And, Prince George's love of the outside world has developed into a passion for protecting the environment, as his father recently revealed he often goes out litter picking with his classmates.

Bit of an eco-warrior, eh? We love to see it!
