Kate Middleton is eager to get her lil’ prince out on the water! Kate, who’s a bit of a sailing enthusiast herself, met with sailing hero Sir Ben Ainslie — and he offered to take Kate and Prince George out on the water whenever the family’s ready! Apparently, the sailing legend would start George out in a small children’s dinghy called an Optimist dinghy.
Wow, how precious. How adorable would it be to see lil’ Prince George setting sail. I mean, I’m sure he’d have some supervision to begin with . . . . But who knows? They could just give him a little push and hope he’s a natural.
“The Duchess was very keen, but not for a couple of years yet — when he’s about 7 or 8,” Ainslie told People. “But we’d love to get the Duchess sailing sooner. She’s very keen and of course we’d love to get her out on the water — she doesn’t get to do it much now.”
She visited the National Maritime Museum at Greenwich in London on Tuesday to support Ainslie, who will skipper a team in the 35th America’s Cup, to be held in 2017.
What do you think about Kate and her sailing dreams for Prince George? Kate’s family has a great interest in sailing, which she demonstrated quite skillfully when she beat her husband, Prince William, in a race while touring New Zealand. Check out the photos of Kate’s visit to the museum and let us know what you think!
