Prince William, who celebrated his 36th birthday yesterday, let the public know the great lengths it takes to be considered cool by Prince George at a charity event for the Defense and National Rehab Centre earlier. William is a patron of the organization and explained that his work for it once really impressed his oldest child. But only once.

“Along the way I have demolished a building–George was at an age at the time that he loved seeing the digger in action, so it did my street cred as a father the world of good,” he said, per Entertainment Tonight. William's use of the past tense subtly suggests that George, now a mature 4-going-on-5 next month, is no longer that wowed by his dad destroying buildings with construction trucks.

Truth is, the dad of three knows his way around all sorts of motorized equipment.

Here he is driving a tractor at his father's estate:
