There's nothing quite like being the favourite, but if you're a member of the royal family, it takes on a whole other meaning.
A royal insider has revealed that Queen Elizabeth leaves gifts at the foot of Prince George's bed whenever he visits Buckingham Palace and "goes out of her way to spend time" with him.
“The doting Queen takes time to select little presents that she leaves at the foot of George’s bed every time he stays over,” Fabulous magazine reports.

The six-year-old has even created his own nickname for his great grandmother, calling her "Gan Gan," which the Queen allegedly found endearing.
As the Prince's birthday approaches, the 93-year-old's soft spot may mean he will be spoiled rotten.
However, George doesn't seem to be a high maintenance birthday boy.
According to the Sun, Prince George himself requested that the event be a low-key affair (if that's even a possibility for a royal baby).
A source (who has closely watched Prince George grow up) told Fabulous that the youngster has a strong sense of responsibility and is "very much his own man."
“With younger siblings Charlotte and Louis taking a lot of the attention at home, George is learning to be more independent," the source added.
While Prince George appears to have a playful side, and Prince William has implied that his son can be "a handful," he is naturally shyer and more serious than his sister Charlotte.

According to News.com, sources close to George claim that although he seems reserved, the young royal is chatty and open when he is comfortable with the company.
“George likes people...whether he has learned this from his father or it simply comes naturally, he first likes to be sure that he can trust them," the source said, adding, “Growing up surrounded by courtiers, you learn fast that not everybody has your best interests at heart."
It's no surprise then, that his birthday celebrations thus far have involved a family-only trip to the Carribean Island of Mustique.
