Prince William lets baby George listen to rock music?

They say babies are like sponges, absorbing anything they're exposed to - that's why expectant mums play Beethoven for their babes. 

Well, it seems Prince William favours harder-edged music for himself and little Prince George. 

The royal revealed that when he wakes up at 4am to give George his bottle - yeah, we can't believe it either! - he turns to BBC Radio 1 to listen to the alternative rock show hosted by DJ Gemma Cairney.

William admitted as much to Cairney during a Google Hangout last week, reported People.

"'Sometimes when I'm up with George I have a listen.' I was very flattered," Cairney told her listeners.

He also suggested she play some of his favourite artists: Linkin Park, indie rockers Foals, house music trio Dirty Vegas and Prince. 

Okay, we'll forgive the boring checkered shirts, Will. You're (kind of) cool.
