Prince William hand-delivers Prince George's letter to Santa

Prince William hand-delivers Prince George's letter to Santa

Just when you thought you've seen all the Prince George cuteness that you can handle, his Christmas wish list has been made public.

Though he may be royalty, four-year-old Prince George doesn't want much this Christmas. He then signed his own name.

Rather than putting the letter up the chimney, or even posting it to Santa, the Duke of Cambridge personally delivered Prince George's handwritten note to Father Christmas on the final day of his two-day trip to Finland.

The proud dad pointed out that George had circled "nice" and pleaded his son's case, saying: "He's been a nice boy, a nice boy".

"He hasn't written down many requests, so I think one request is probably okay", William said.

Despite there being lots of space for the mini royal to list at least five gifts, George reveals that all he would like for Christmas is a police vehicle, before signing his name clearly at the bottom.

The Duke was seen enjoying traditional festive market in the centre of Helsinki which will gave the royal the chance to meet Finnish residents and Father Christmas.

Presumably the four-year-old was requesting a toy vehicle for Christmas as he will not be old enough to sit his driving test for 13-and-a-half years.

After meeting the man every child dreams about in the run up to Christmas, William and his entourage were offered glasses of mulled wine and ginger biscuits in the shape of reindeer. Over to you, Santa!

William's two-day visit to the home of Father Christmas came to an end when he met members of Finland's air force at Helsinki airport where military aircraft were on display.
