Prince William Earns "Street Cred" From Son George

The Duke of Cambridge isn't a regular dad, he's a cool dad.

It takes more than being second-in-line to the British throne to impress your son these days -- as the Duke of Cambridge can attest.

Speaking at the opening of the Defence and National Rehabilitation Centre (DNRC) in Nottinghamshire on Thursday, Prince William explained how he earned "street cred" with Prince George with his work for the centre.

"Along the way I've demolished the building, George was at an age at the time that he'd love to see the digger in action. So it did my street cred as a father a world of good," Prince William said.

The former Royal Air Force search and rescue pilot has been a long-time patron of the organisation that provides medical care for servicemen and women.

"I've been a patron at the DNRC for four years and I've enjoyed every single moment of it, I've seen the growth of an idea transfer into what we see today and it is rare and immensely satisfying thing to have witnessed," he said.

Prince William spoke at the opening of the Centre on his 36th birthday, which was funded partly by a $90 million dollar donation from William's godfather, the sixth Duke of Westminster, who passed away in 2016.

The Duke of Cambridge also pulled on our heartstrings when he read a heartfelt poem about the children who have lost their parents in the service.
