Prince George started speaking much before toddlers of his age. This was revealed by the “Peep Show” actress Sophie Winkleman during an exclusive interview with Hello magazine. The actress, who featured on the cover of Hello February issue, said that she and her older daughter were invited to Kensington Palace when Kate Middleton was pregnant with Princess Charlotte.
The 35-year-old actress is married to Queen Elizabeth II’s cousin’s son Lord Frederick Windsor. The “Two And A Half Men” star said that during her daughter’s playdate with George, the tot would have been 20 months old, while her daughter Maud was just three weeks younger than the prince. Sophie recounted that the mother-daughter duo were invited for tea to the palace.
The two toddlers enjoyed each other’s company during their play date and Sophie picked up on the two-year-old’s advanced speaking ability for his age. “He is a very clever, articulate little boy and was speaking long before other toddlers his age,” she said, speaking about two-year-old Prince George. It was reported that when George went on a tour of New Zealand in 2014 by his parents, Kate Middleton and Prince William, he was just eight-month-old.
The baby prince joined a playgroup in Wellington and looked larger than the other children who were of a similar age.
Meanwhile, little George is continuing with his nursery school at the Westacre Montessori School near his parents country home in Norfolk. He started going to the school from January. It was reported that the little royal was settling very well in the school.
Since the time little George was enrolled in the school, the institute has been flooded with phone calls from parents who want to enrol their kids. “When it was announced, our phones were ringing off the hook with people asking whether we had space in our nurseries,” said Louise Livingston, director of training at the Maria Montessori Institute, talking to the Press Association.
She added that they were still getting calls from parents asking them if there were any seats free. The training head of the institution hoped that someday Charlotte would also enrol in the school.
