Prince William Having Trouble with Royal Son

July 10, 2014


It turns out that being royalty doesn’t mean all your troubles are automatically gone. At an event held on Wednesday, Prince William of England admitted that when it comes time to give His Royal Highness Prince George a bath, things could definitely go better.

The moment came when Prince William had donned his aqua-gear at an event for the British Sub-Aqua Club (BSAC). He commented, “At the moment bath time is quite painful, but hopefully donning a snorkel and mask might calm (Prince George) down.”

The prince was attending to raise awareness for all things aquatic and enjoys many water-based activities like surfing and diving.

The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, also enjoys diving and went frequently in northern Wales.

William’s father, Prince Charles, was also in attendance. Charles was, until May of this year, the president of BSAC, a role he inherited from his father, the Duke of Edinburgh. Charles has since passed the reigns to his eldest son.

“I can only assume that (Willliam’s) interest probably stems from the fact that I threw him into the swimming pool on many occasions,” Charles remarked on his son’s affinity for the water. “Instead of putting him off, it actually enthused him, so I’m thrilled that he has decided to carry on the tradition started really by my father.” Only time will tell if little baby George follows in daddy’s footsteps.
