There is always a lot of thought and love you give in your birthday present to your grandchildren, but when you are all a part of the royal family, that devotion becomes bigger, since your grandchild already has everything he needs.
Prince Charles has come up with an extraordinary idea for Prince George’s birthday. He planted dozens of trees in a paddock adjoining his garden at his Highland hideaway, Birkhall, near Balmoral to celebrate the birth of the little prince five years ago. Prince of Wales carried on with planting trees to this day, and he desires to continue to add more trees with his grandson in the years to come.
“This is George’s Wood,” Charles shared, as stated by The Express, citing a BBC documentary to be broadcast on next Thursday to celebrate his 70th birthday. “As I get older, all I really long for is to plant trees. I hope it will be quite amusing for George as they grow up and he grows up.”
Prince Charles wife Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, commented that George’s arboretum has already blossomed charmingly since the project first started.
“You can’t believe how much it’s grown. It was tiny when it was all planted,” she said, as stated in The Express. “The next thing you know, you’re being dwarfed by it.”
Prince Charles is not the only one to have such a devotion to birthday presents. Prince Harry is building a library of first editions for his nephews and niece. But, Harry couldn’t help himself as he bought for his youngest nephew Louis’ christening a $10,000 first edition of AA Milne’s Winnie-The-Pooh, according to the Mirror.
As per The Sun, Prince Harry first wanted to give a Lewis Carroll’s Through The Looking Glass, which was selling for $30,000 but changed his idea for Winnie-The-Pooh.
“One of Harry’s happiest childhood memories was being read a bedtime story by his mother,” one friend of the family shared, as stated in The Sun.“She loved all the old classics and Harry had the brilliant idea of starting a little library of first editions for Louis, Charlotte, and George to enjoy as they get older.”
