Prince George loves to swim, Kate Middleton says

Duchess of Cambridge tells Commonwealth champion swimmer that her little prince really enjoys a good splash around


Kate Middleton has revealed that Prince George is learning to swim. And he absolutely loves it, she says.


So we’ve had a bit of fun (above) imagining how the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s 1-year-old son might look in his armbands!

Kate revealed George’s love of water at a SportsAid reception as she chatted to former world and Commonwealth champion swimmer James Hickman.

“She was at the swimming last night, so I was just interested to know if she had taken George swimming,” James said.

“She’s been swimming with him. She said he loves the water and he grabs things to splash with.

And referring to Prince George’s great aunt Anne, the Princess Royal, and her daughter Zara, who have both ridden for Britain in international sporting events, James added:  “Maybe he could be the next royal to take part in the Olympics, and if he was in swimming that would be incredible!”
