The 23-month-old Prince has been busy planting trees with his grandfather Prince Charles at their country home, Highgrove House.

The pair planted two trees, one of which was a Winter Orange Lime, according to People magazine.

Charles is noted horticulturist and George is being versed on the importance of the environment from an early age, thanks to his mother the Duchess of Cambridge.

Kate Middleton has reportedly taken to growing organic vegetables at their Amner Hall home in Norfolk and using them for smoothies for the royal toddler.

Meanwhile, focus has been put on George's dexterity after he was pictured using his left hand at the polo and his father Prince William is left handed.

"Young children can use both their hands but George seems to be very left-handed," an insider close to the couple told DailyMail.com.

"More often than not, he uses his left hand to hold things and both William and Catherine have noticed this. William is thrilled his son has inherited this trait. He is always joking that left-handers have better brains."
