If there’s anything that Prince George inherited from his late grandmother, Princess Diana, it’s her impressive dancing skills! When Prince William recently hosted a reception at Kensington Palace for inspired teens, he gushed about his son to one of the kids who shares the same passion.

“George is doing dancing as well, he loves it,” William said to Junior in a video that was shared by the Palace’s official Twitter account. “My mother always used to dance, she loved dancing and if it’s something you love, you do what you love. Don’t let anyone else tell you otherwise. Keep at it.”

In fact, Junior told the doting dad that he’s learning how to street dance, which led William to ask the teen, “can you spin on your head?” But unfortunately, that was one trick that Junior still needed to learn. Still, William insisted that the young dancer could put his moves to shame any day.

“Breakdancing [is] literally where I break myself,” William joked. Unlike his dad, William’s son Prince George has been taking ballet lessons at St Thomas’s Battersea and has loved them. The school’s website states that the classes help the students “physical skills, stamina, creativity, expression, and musicality, using a range of sounds and musical styles.”

Princess Diana loved to dance too and when she visited President Ronald Reagan and his wife, Nancy, at the White House in 1985, she danced the night away with John Travolta. “I’ll never forget it,” John said when he previously recalled the night to Één. Apparently, it was Nancy’s wish that the two would share a dance.

“At midnight, I had to tap her on her shoulder, and I had to say, ‘Would you care to dance?’ She turned around and dipped her head in that Lady Diana way and we were off for 15 minutes dancing,” John said. “It was her favorite moment. So I feel I made her life better, she made my life better, and I’m very sorry that she’s not here.”
