From the moment he and Kate left the hospital, Prince William already started joking about his son's good looks and sharing adorable stories about his early days as a dad. Meanwhile, his brother, Prince Harry, has plans to show George how to have fun, and Kate imagines he'll follow in his father's footsteps. Check out all the precious comments the royals have made about Prince George!

Prince William

On George as a newborn: "He's got a good pair of lungs on him that's for sure. He's a good boy, he's quite heavy."

On his nursery: "I'll have toy elephants and rhinos around the room. We'll cover it in lots of bushes and things like that, make him grow up as if he's in the bush."

On him being cute: "He's got her looks, thankfully."

On his disposition: "He's a little bit of a rascal, I'll put it that way. He either reminds me of my brother or me when I was younger, I'm not sure, but he's doing very well at the moment."
