Julia Samuel, an old friend of Princess Diana's and one of Prince George's godmothers, just gave royal watchers some rare insight into the six-year-old Prince's life. During an appearance on the "How To Fail With Elizabeth Day" podcast, Samuel opened up about the quirky presents she gets for George, and why Diana would've loved her grandson "so much."

Describing how she celebrates the young Prince's birthdays, she revealed that she'd found a way to keep Diana's spirit alive through her gifts. "I do to George what [Princess Diana] did to us, which is give impossible toys that are really noisy and take a lot of making," Samuel said, per People. "I come in slightly tipped by the size of the present that William then has to spend days putting together. And then put all the machinery together, and it makes awful tooting noises and lights flashing and all of that."

Apparently, it's a hit. "That makes me laugh, and it makes George laugh," Samuel said.

She also noted that George seems to have inherited his grandmother's sense of humor. "He's funny and feisty and cheeky and God, [Diana] would have loved him so much," Samuel said. "That is heartbreaking for all of them."

George can look forward to another one of his godmother's "impossible toys" later this month, when the Prince celebrates his seventh birthday on July 22. Hopefully it won't take Prince William too long to put together this time.
