Prince George is already learning one of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s favourite hobbies

Prince George has already started following in Kate and Wills’ footsteps when it comes to their love of sports.

His mum and dad, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, have been in a royal tour of Sweden and Norway last week, which of course included a visit to the slopes.

During their trip to Holmenkollen Ski Jump, one of of Oslo’s most iconic landmarks, pregnant Kate revealed that Prince George has already tried skiing.

The Duchess’ revelation was posted on social media by a royal reporter, who wrote: ‘The Duchess of Cambridge has confirmed that Prince George tried skiing last year “but he was just two and a half so was just starting”.’

Even though the mum said Prince George had a go at the winter sport last year, Kate was probably referring to their 2016 trip to the French Alps.

It was their first holiday since the birth of Princess Charlotte, who they welcomed in May 2015, and little George was only two years old.

The doting parents shared official pictures of their first holiday as a family of four at the time, where they could be seen dressed up in ski gear.

‘This was their first holiday as a family of four and the first time either of the children had played in the snow. It was very special and fun short holiday for the family.

‘The Duke and Duchess hope people enjoy the photos’, a spokesman for the couple said at the time.

During their royal visit to the Scandinavian countries, William also revealed he’s been inspired by the ‘Swedish love of the outdoors’, and plans to encourage his children to spend more time outside in order to benefit their physical and mental health.

Skiing is not the first hobby Prince George has inherited from his parents – the young royal has also started to learn how to play tennis, one of his mum’s favourite sports.
