Prince George's First Job During School Vacation Revealed by Kate Middleton

Kate Middleton revealed on an engagement this week that Prince George took on his first job during his school vacation.

On a visit to Pant Farm with Prince William as part of a recent royal visit to Wales, Kate met members of the local farming community and heard about the various roles needed to help it function.

During an inspection of the farm's facilities, Kate was shown a new piece of farming machinery which was used to sweep up silage. When told by farmer Gary Yeomans that the machine could also be used to move feed around the barns, Kate was overheard telling him, via Hello! magazine: "That was George's job at half term—moving feed."

Prince George, 8, is third in line to the British throne and lives with his parents between their homes at Kensington Palace and Anmer Hall on the Queen's Sandringham Estate in Norfolk.

The young prince has started to attend some of his parents' royal engagements, most recently being present at the England vs. Wales Six Nations rugby match.

This year Kate was made patron of the Rugby Football Union, a role which had been fulfilled by Prince Harry from 2016. The Rugby Football Union patronage was the first of Harry's former roles to be redistributed by the queen following his move to the States.

Prince William is heavily involved in the running of the Sandringham Estate farms and spoke in his 2020 television program, Prince William: A Planet For Us All, about his love for countryside management and getting his children involved too.

On a visit to Cardiff that same year, William spoke of his experience delivering baby lambs with George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis. He said: "We've been lambing with the children this week. Charlotte wasn't sure at first but George was straight in there. Louis loves the tractors. They love seeing the lambs and feeding the lambs."

Later on during their visit to Pant Farm the royal couple interacted with a herd of goats to which Kate revealed she had a personal connection.

Speaking to members of the farming community, according to The Times, she commented: "I was looking into my ancestry and there was someone who was a rare breed goat farmer. I will have to find out which one it was. It was just after the First World War."

The visit to Wales was made on the Welsh national day, St. David's Day, and on a later visit to a community youth center William and Kate were seen wearing matching green sweaters as a tribute to their host country.
