Attention royal fans: Prince George has a favorite song and we now know what it is.

According to Prince William, the oldest Cambridge kid listens to the Three Lions football anthem every single morning when he wakes up.

This latest royal tidbit comes courtesy of comedian Frank Skinner, who had a hit with George's favorite song in 1996. Skinner learned about his young royal fan when he met William at the Royal Variety Show.

"I listen to your song every morning," the Duke of Cambridge told Skinner at the Royal Variety Show, according to The Mirror. "Honestly, George plays it every morning ever since the World Cup. I thought it would fade away but it hasn't. He still plays it every day."

Skinner also said he shook hands with Will at the event and told the prince, "I think you're the first Aston Villa fan I've ever shaken hands with."

Here's the Three Lions football anthem, if you want to listen for yourself:
