Prince George will be carrying on the tradition

Prince George will have to become adept at many skills quite early on to be successful in his role as a member of the Royal Family. He will need to master everything from public speaking to charity work and even horse riding – if he is to follow in his family’s footsteps.

But there is one skill that will be crucial for the little prince to learn so that he can carry on the special family tradition that has brought Prince Philip, Prince Charles and Prince William together.

The royals today share many of the same charitable passions as the royals of previous generations.

You need only look at how Prince Harry carried on Diana, Princess of Wales’s plight in bringing attention to the dangers of landmines, or how Prince William still visits homeless charities and speaks regularly about mental health, in the same way that Diana did.

So it’ll come as no surprise to learn that there is another tradition that Prince George, eight, will be ready to take over from his father when he masters this common skill.

Prince William became the third generation of the family to take on the presidency of the British Sub-Aqua Club (BSAC) in 2014, following on from his father, Prince Charles and his grandfather, the late Prince Philip.

At an event William spoke to BSAC members and said: “It’s a great honor to be here with my father and accept the presidency of the British Sub-Aqua Club, continuing that from my grandfather as well.”

He added: “I hope that one day my son George might follow in our footsteps. For the moment bath time is quite painful, but I imagine as he gets a little bit older, donning a mask and snorkel might calm him down.”

Prince William – who has been the patron of Swim England since 2017- was also the Captain of the water polo team during his time at the University of St Andrews.

Prince Charles then gave a farewell speech after being made an honorary life member of the organization.

He said: “I’m delighted that my eldest son is taking over from me.”

The Prince of Wales, who has dived to the Tudor warship Mary Rose, as well as in the Arctic, said: “I can only assume that his interest probably stems from the fact that I threw him into the swimming pool on many occasions.

“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.”

He added jokingly: “I know my eldest son will now demonstrate his buff credentials, by leaping bodily into this very welcoming – and I didn’t realize existed – swimming pool.”
