Royal children might be tiny economic powerhouses, but that doesn’t mean they don’t love to cause a classic brain-crushing racket.

People reports that Prince William recently spoke to patients at London’s Royal Marsden Hospital. “He said his household is very noisy at the moment,” reported Kathryn England. George will turn three this summer; Charlotte just turned a year old.

Nor is this the first time the royal parents have commented on their offsprings’ substantial lungs—especially George.

During a 2013 appearance in Wales, he apologized for Kate’s absence and said that, “She and George would have loved to have been here. He’s pretty loud but of course very good looking!” When the pair left him at home for Christmas church services in 2014, Kate told a little girl in the crowd that, “I’m sorry we didn’t bring George but you would have heard him in the church,” and she informed a young Australian that “he was very cute but very, very loud and that she was scared he might scare the animals there.”


Prince William has also said that his trick for calming George when he was younger was a running faucet.

Royal babies: exactly the same as other babies.
