Duke hopes George experiences 'wonders' of snorkeling

Prince George may only be nine months old but his proud father, The Duke of Cambridge, would like to see him in the future experience the "wonders" of snorkelling and scuba diving.

The comments come as Prince William became president of the British Sub-Aqua Club (Bsac) governing body, the third generation of the monarchy to take the helm of president.

In a foreword for the magazine 'Scuba,' the Duke of Cambridge said he hopes his son Prince George will take up scuba diving,

Prince William said: "Just like my grandfather and my father, I am proud to say that I learnt to dive with Bsac, and share your passion for the sport and the underwater world.

"I hope that one day my son, George, will also experience the wonders that snorkelling and scuba diving have to offer."
