Children's entertainer Paul Kilshaw, 53, from Victoria, made George and Charlotte balloon animals and received unusual requests from the prince - a spider and a volcano. He added: 'When I made him the spider he started to laugh and pushed it in my face then pushed it in dad's face.

'William said 'we try making balloons at home but it doesn't work'.

'At first George wasn't interested in getting one until Charlotte was getting one, then he was right over. He wanted what she had.'George especially asked for a volcano and he was very proud to tell me all about volcanoes.'When I started with the orange flames he was pleased to tell me 'and that's lava'.'Charlotte asked for a flower, I think she said 'flower' because the other little girls were asking for flowers.'
