Prince William visits Santa Claus in Finland, delivers Prince Georges’ Xmas wishlist to him
As part his two-day trip to Finland, Prince William visited Father Christmas and handed over a letter from Prince George telling him what he wants for Christmas. As William’s two-day trip to Finland came to an end, he met Santa Claus and showed him his son’s handwritten note, which requested a police car as his gift.
The second-in-line to the throne pulled the letter from his suit jacket pocket during the encounter at a Christmas market in Helsinki. As he handed it to Father Christmas, he said: ‘I’ve seen you and I had to give you this letter.’
William added laughing: ‘He hasn’t written down many requests, so I think one request is probably ok.’ Santa scrutinised the form, which had been filled in by the future king and began with the printed words: ‘Dear Father Christmas this year I have been naughty/nice.’ George had circled ‘nice’ and written in large script ‘police car’. He also wrote his name at the bottom. Proud dad William pointed to the word ‘nice’ and pleaded his son’s case, saying: ‘But he’s been a nice boy, a nice boy.’ Santa, who traditionally is from Finland, nodded his head in agreement and duke smiled again.
