If Disney films have taught us anything, it's that royalty and woodland creatures have a natural, undeniable chemistry. Let's look at the facts: Cinderella's mouse-and-bird brigade were only happy to make her a dress from scratch, even though that would have been quite tedious/impossible. Snow White merely had to plant her fictional toosh in the forest before she was visited by her rabbit friends who worshipped her. Need we remind you of Ariel's sea-creature groupies? Girlfriend got tugged across the ocean by a flounder.
Well, it turns out the animated titans were really onto something. In his first year of life, Prince George has already made quite an impression on the animal kingdom. It appears the royal baby will befriend any creature that dares to cross his adorable path. His can't-stop-won't-stop attitude has resulted in several encounters with critters both real and stuffed that are sure to last
a lifetime like seven years. Ahead, in honor of his birthday, six animal friendships Prince George has insisted upon.
