Prince William is not like just any regular prince—he’s a cool dad, too.
A British radio DJ Gemma Cairney recently hosted a Google+ Hangout with the 32-year-old British royal and his 29-year-old brother, Prince Harry . Cairney said William told her before the online show that he has listened to her BBC Radio 1 program, which airs from 4 a.m. to 6:30 a.m., while taking care of his and wife Kate’s 11-month-old son, Prince George.
“You know, sometimes when I’m up with George …’ ‘I was like, ‘Yeah, yeah, ‘course, totes,'” she told listeners on her show on Thursday, July 10. “He said, ‘Yeah, you know, I have a listen.’ I was very flattered.”
Cairney also named three bands that she says William has been listening to a lot lately. The groups are Linkin Park, British indie rock group Foals and the electronic band Dirty Vegas and their track “Days Gone By,” in particular. She said William told her, “Music is a big thing for me.”
Cairney then played on her show what she dubbed a “Prince Willy mini-mix” made up of samples of four tracks: The Foals’ “My Number,” Linkin Park’s “Numb,” Dirty Vegas’ “Days Go By” and (since we are dealing with a royal) Prince’s “When Doves Cry.”
She described William’s music taste as “eclectic,” which could also be applied to her radio program, which features a mix of new hits and ’80s, ’90s and ’00s tracks and mostly rock and pop music. On Thursday, she played songs from the likes of Guns N’ Roses, Ed Sheeran and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis.
And we already know William can dance, as he demonstrated in 2011
Cairney’s BBC Radio 1 Google+ Hangout took place at Buckingham Palace, residence of reigning monarch Queen Elizabeth II, William and Harry’s grandmother.
“So, both princes in a huge room in Buckingham Palace, very regal, very gold, lots of old portraits, exactly how you would expect it to be,” Cairney said. “I was wearing a floral jumpsuit, which matched the carpets.”
