Glimpses of the youngest royals are few and far between, but the Duke of Cambridge has revealed that Prince George is “obsessed with dinosaurs” during a visit to Acorns Children’s Hospice, in Selly Oak.
Prince William told staff that he and his eldest son, 5, had been “learning all about them,” as he toured the hospice’s facilities, which include a multisensory room and hydrotherapy pool.
Acorns provides specialist care for life limited and life threatened children and in the past year, it has provided care for more than 870 children and over 1,000 families.

The charity celebrates its 30th anniversary this year and it’s a particularly poignant visit for William, as his mother Princess Diana opened the hospice in 1988. It was one of the first of its kind.
The Duke has spent the day in the West Midlands and earlier, attended the inaugural SkillForce Prince William Award Graduation Ceremony at the University of Birmingham.

The scheme aims to help young people build their character, resilience and confidence by running workshops and projects in schools each week, which are led by SkillForce instructors – many of whom are former members of the British Armed Forces.
For his last engagement of the trip, the Duke unveiled a statue of Major Frank Foley in Mary Stevens Park, in Stourbridge. Major Foley was a British spy working as an undercover passport control officer in Berlin and he helped thousands of Jews escape from Nazi Germany.
