It pays to be the favorite! Queen reportedly leaves presents for Prince George who turns six today at the foot of his bed every time be stops by Buckingham Palace.
Queen Elizabeth has several great-grandchildren, but she is partial towards one — Prince George, whose parents are Kate Middleton and Prince William.

The reason for the fondness the Queen has for her great-grandson ranges from the fact that he’s the third in line to the throne and her future successor, to a lot of unknown reasons.
However, the fondness has led to the monarch treating the young Prince, who turns six today, in a special way.
Her Majesty equally spends more time with the little boy than any of her great-grandchildren, and when he turned five last year, the Royal Mint made silver and gold coins to mark the occasion.
It cast 750 limited edition sovereign coins which sold at $623 per coin, and it sold out immediately after its release.
The coins are a testament to the life of privilege Prince George has, and according to the news outlet, the young Prince is beginning to understand that he is not a “Regular” boy, and Middleton and Williams are doing their best to ensure that he becomes the best version of himself.

Interestingly, despite the wealth and privilege in George's life, like most little boys, he likes to play outdoors, be adventurous, and spend time with his mum and siblings.
The royal loves to make pottery, homemade pizza, and play tennis. The young Prince also seems to love soccer, as one of the photos in the birthday portraits released by his parents, showed him wearing the jersey of the England soccer team.
Prince George is a boy with his own mind, and he chose to have his birthday celebrations at Anmer Hall, at the Duke and Duchess's home in Norfolk, with close family members.
The young royal has been on vacation with his parents, sister, Princess Charlotte, and brother, Louis, at the private Caribbean Island, Mustique.
Upon his return to London, George will start his second year at Thomas Battersea, and if he finds time to visit Buckingham Palace in between his school commitments, the Queen might have his gift waiting for him at the foot of his bed.
