Prince William’s paternal instincts kicked in during a recent trip to Jordan, where he met with Syrian refugee children around the same age as his eldest son, Prince George.
William, who is second in line to the British throne, after his father, Prince Charles, was filmed bonding with the children and asking them how old they are.
“My little boy is called George, and he’s 5 years old too,” William told a young girl.
