Wimbledon Guardian: Carshalton child prodigy gets royal invite Carshalton child prodigy gets royal invite

A five-year-old child prodigy has had a personal invite from the Queen ahead of her Diamond Jubilee this summer.

Carshalton wonderkid Aadarsh George will head to the celebrations with his parents on June 6.

After numerous television appearances with the BBC and ITV, young Aadarsh caught the eye of the Prime Minister David Cameron.

Mr Cameron was so impressed by the young mind of the Muschamp Primary School pupil, he sent him a signed picture and is in the process of organising a meeting.

Aadarsh's father Anish, 39, of Wellow Walk, Carshalton, joked one day his son would be vying for a place in Mr Cameron's cabinet but he wants him to "do good".

He said: "He wants to be a scientist like Stephen Hawkins and has started to recite quantum theory. He is a very special boy.

"We want him to help people, to help support the human race. He is only going to get smarter, and we are very, very proud of him."

In 2010, Aadarsh scooped the title of Best Young Talent at the British Malayali Awards after polling 9,000 votes.

The youngster, who knows every capital city, cabinet minister and has extensive knowledge of computers, defeated two sisters who achieved the highest GCSE results in the country.

Beaming father Anish said his son would not have won the title without the public, who helped him poll 30 per cent of the votes, meaning he pipped his rivals by just 240 votes.

He said: "We have a small library of books in the house now and we hope he will continue to learn. He can now count in 12 languages."
