Prince George's godmother has revealed the heartwarming gift-giving tradition she pinched from her friend Princess Diana.

The late Princess used to buy "noisy" toys that take "a lot of making" says Julia Samuel.

And she's got quite the present for the young Prince George, who will turn seven, on his birthday in a couple of days time on 22 July.

Ms Samuel, 60, was a long-time friend of Diana and is godmother to both Prince William and George.

Ms Samuel said: “I do to George what [Diana] did to us, which is give impossible toys that are really noisy and take a lot of making.

“William then has to spend days putting together. And then put all the machinery together, and it makes awful tooting noises and lights flashing and all of that.”

Watching William struggle to assemble the toys “makes me laugh, and it makes George laugh”, she added.

Ms Samuel was a guest on podcast How to Fail with Elizabeth Day and talked about how "amazing" George is before adding: "He's funny and feisty and cheeky and God she [Diana] would have loved him so much. That is heartbreaking for all of them."

The podcast was released on July 1, on what would have been Princess Diana's 59th birthday.

Talking about her children, Kate Middleton recently revealed what it was like being in lockdown with her brood.

The Duchess of Cambridge admitted it was hard to keep up with her children's appetites.

She said: "My children have bottomless pits. I feel like a constant feeding machine for them."

Kate also admitted that struggled getting her youngest son, two-year-old Prince Louis to understand why he couldn't cuddle everyone during lockdown.

She said: "He goes out wanting to cuddle anything. Especially babies younger than him."

Kate isolated with husband Prince William along with their sons and daughter Princess Charlotte, five, at Anmer Hall in Norfolk.

Kate last month had also revealed her two sons had been engaging in a heated battle to grow the tallest sunflower, saying Prince George had grown "grumpy" as Louis appeared to be beating him.

She also talked frankly about how her family got through lockdown and shared that it was both "positive" and "tough" at the same time.

She said: 'It's been challenging. Some parts have been really positive, spending extra time with the kids, everything like that, but it is equally stressful. You are in confined spaces. And having to home school, that was a challenge. I always had a respect for teachers before but now I have a newfound respect for them."
