Prince George

Cape Town - The five-year-old has been captivating our hearts for years with his enthusiastic waves and cute outfits.

But now Prince George has another little facet that has us enchanted.

While attending the BBC’s Teen Heroes event recently, Prince William (36) met a 14-year-old named Junior Froods, a young dancer who’s an anti-bulling activist, reports Harper’s Bazaar.

William then revealed to the young man that his son George is also a dance enthusiast.

“George is doing dancing as well, he loves it,” the proud dad said.

The young prince is likely to have inherited the talent from his grandmother, the late Diana, Princess of Wales.

“My mother always used to dance, she loved dancing,” he said.

 “And if it’s something you love, you do what you love. Don’t let anyone else tell you otherwise. Keep at it,” he encouraged.

George has been doing ballet while at Thomas’s Battersea – a pre-primary school the the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge chose not only for how close it is to the palace, but also because of the variety of extra-curricular activities the institution offers, reports People.

Last year, William also revealed that his daughter, Princess Charlotte (3), also enjoys dancing.

In her younger days and before marrying into the royal family, Diana had hopes of becoming a ballerina and even studied it at school, writes Popsugar. But because of her height, she wasn’t able to fulfil that dream.

Speaking to The Sun in 2017, her former ballet teacher revealed that Diana was a passionate dancer.

“She had dance in her soul. I realised the pure enjoyment that it gave her,” she said.

“She loved the freeness of being able to move and dance. I could see it helped to alleviate her emotional life,” she added.
