Prince George to appear in his favourite show

What does every little four-year-old want? To team up with their favourite characters! Luckily for Prince George, that is just what he will get when he makes a special appearance in his favourite show, Fireman Sam. 

Setting the wheels in motion, Prince William commented that “Fireman Sam has taken an awful lot of interest” to Prince George back in April on Radio 1.

A special show to celebrate the 30th anniversary called The Prince of Pontypandy will feature Prince George visited Fireman Sam’s hometown of Pontypandy. George will come to the rescue by flying a helicopter.

The Duchess of Cambridge has previously noted that George loves helicopters when speaking to another mother at an engagement, who said: “[Kate] was asking about what Jacob liked and he said he liked aeroplanes and she was asking if he’d seen a Spitfire and we said we liked going to the Science Museum and RAF museum. She was saying how George likes helicopters, she was saying about the top floor of the Science Museum where the helicopters are.”


Senior producer Ian McCue of Fireman Sam told the BBC: “Fireman Sam has been enjoyed by generations over the past 30 years and is a true icon of children’s television around the world. We can’t wait for fans to see the special royal episode and the new series which will be out next year.”

Other favourite shows of Prince George include The Lion King.

Prince William has said while at an engagement at Paddington Station for the release of Paddington 2: “He quite likes The Lion King. He’s watched that a few times. We’ve watched Octonauts several times. He has watched some Lego movies as well, so he’s watched a lot of things like that,

“Trying to keep him off the television is hard work – not too much TV.”
