If you can speak about as much French as Emily in Paris, then you're not alone. Sadly, not all of us are gifted with the ability to pick up a new language as easy as un, deux, trois. For Prince George however, that doesn't appear to be the case, as the eight-year-old is already impressing mum Kate Middleton with the language skills he's learning at school.

As we know, the future King is currently in Year 4 at Thomas's Battersea primary school (where Princess Charlotte is in Year 2) and is studying all of the typical topics you'd expect of an eight-year-old, like Maths, English and Science. Surprisingly though, he's also been working on his French and Spanish skills as part of his curriculum.

Thomas's Battersea's website states: "In the lower school, pupils have language and culture lessons, in which they encounter a range of different languages. Older pupils receive specific language lessons focusing on French and/or Spanish as well as classics."

As for how he's getting on with the languages, his mum the Duchess of Cambridge has already revealed he's quite the natural when it comes to Spanish. Speaking at an event a few years back, where the Duchess was trying to teach Princess Charlotte some Spanish, she pointed out that Prince George could already count up to ten in the language [per Marie Claire].

Unfortunately, Prince George's enjoyment of his language class doesn't extend to everything he does at school. In fact, his dad Prince William last year revealed that George was left feeling "confused" and "annoyed" after his class had gone out litter picking.

"So George at school recently has been doing litter picking," the Duke of Cambridge said on BBC's Newscast series. "I didn't realise but talking to him the other day he was already showing that he was getting a bit confused and a bit sort of annoyed by the fact they went out litter picking one day and then the very next day they did the same route, same time and pretty much all the same litter they picked back up again."

Prince William continued: "And I think that for him he was trying to understand how and where it all came from. He couldn't understand, he's like, 'Well, we cleaned this. Why has it not gone away?'"

Sounds like we have a little environmentalist on our hands!
