'Nice' Prince George Pens Christmas List to Santa

- Deborah Hastings

Prince George has been a very good little boy this year.

His dad, Prince William, hand delivered the 4-year-old's Christmas list to Santa Claus, who was making an appearance in Helsinki, Finland.

The pint-sized heir to the throne had circled "nice" and not "naughty" on a letter to Father Christmas. He listed only one item, in large printed letters: "PoLICE car."

It was signed "george."

Prince William, who is on a state visit to the Scandinavian country, told Santa, "I've seen you and I had to give you this letter. He hasn't written down many requests, so I think one request is probably OK.

"He's been a nice boy," his father said. Santa accepted the note with a sage nod of the head.

It's been a busy week for the royals. On Monday, Prince Harry announced his engagement to American actress Meghan Markle after a one-year courtship.

William joked Wednesday that he was very glad his younger brother was getting hitched. "For me, personally, I hope it means he stays out of my fridge and will stop scrounging my food, which he's done for the last few years."
