Boris Johnson has revealed in an interview the gift he sent to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their newborn son
The royal baby has received another incredible gift from a famous name, this time from none other than the Mayor of London.
So what do you buy the little Prince who undoubtedly has everything? His very own Boris bike, of course.
Boris Johnson revealed his unusual gift for Prince George of Cambridge in an interview on LBC Radio this week. He told reporters that he had a tricycle version of the captial’s famous hire bikes made, so the little Prince can cycle around Kensington Gardens on his very own tiny blue set of wheels. Though we’re assuming he won’t have to pay like the rest of us…
When Boris was prompted for information on his secret gift, he revealed: ‘We are sending a tricycle. There you go.’
But when further questioned, he seemed to become confused, leading listeners to question whether he’d actually ordered the gift himself.
He added: ‘I don’t know actually. I’m using the present tense because I think it has gone. I’m looking around… I think it has gone. I’m not certain actually. I’m afraid I haven’t personally been out shopping. I imagine it’s a beautiful blue.’
Becoming flustered when asked about Barclays’ association with the gift and whether they’d built a bespoke version, he said: ‘It might well be. That was what I was told. Thank goodness. It’s not in my briefing. I wasn’t briefed on baby presents. My memory is and I’m glad it has been confirmed we are sending Prince George a beautiful, bouncing blue tricycle to get him on the bike at the earliest possible opportunity and to acculturate him to the joy of cycling.
‘It will be beautiful whatever it is.’
Back in 2011, Boris gifted the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge with a special tandem version of the hire bike for their royal wedding. Can you just imagine how cute Kate Middleton, Prince William and Prince George would look on a family bike ride?
