The Duchess of Cambridge has revealed that Prince George loves to bond with dad Prince William over their love of films, with two of her first-born's favourites being Paddington and Coco. While chatting with the latter film's director Lee Unkrich during a post-BAFTAs ceremony meet and greet, Kate was overheard detailing her four-year-old son's passion for films. "They [kids] are just getting into films now, George is four-and-a-half," she said via MailOnline. "Paddington is definitely up there, and so is Coco now."
The 36-year-old added: "It's great obviously because of William's interest in film, it's great to have that father-son thing." The comments come shortly after BAFTA President William, 35, revealed how much George enjoys watching Disney films. "He quite likes The Lion King," he said when attending a Paddington 2 event in October. "We've watched that a few times." The royal added: "We've watched Octonauts several times. He has watched some Lego movies as well, so he's watched a lot of things like that."
William and Kate, who are gearing up for the arrival of their third child in April, were guests of honour at the BAFTAs on Sunday evening. The expectant mother looked divine in a floor-length dark green gown by Jenny Packham, while William put on a handsome display in a tailored tux. On the night, William told the audience at the Royal Albert Hall that Sir Ridley Scott's films were amongst his own "personal favourites" as he presented the filmmaker with the Fellowship award.
"The recipient of this year's Fellowship - the highest honour the Academy can bestow - is a true cinema great," he said in his speech. "His films are amongst my own personal favourites. A director and producer whose work has engaged audiences for 40 years, and whose creativity continues to inspire the vital next generation of talent... please welcome to the stage, Sir Ridley Scott." Sir Ridley's films include classics such as Blade Runner, Alien and Gladiator.
