Nothing gets the blood pumping more than sports! While recently speaking with famed tennis star Novak Djokovic at Wimbledon, Prince William revealed that he is already trying to get his two oldest kids, Prince George, 4, and Princess Charlotte, 3, into sports.
Djokovic began the conversation by asking William and his wife, Kate Middleton, “How are your children?” to which William replied, “Very well, thanks, very well. Trying to get a tennis racket in their hand — and a football!”
The conversation — which was posted on the official Wimbledon Instagram account on Monday, July 16 — has received more than one million views so far. Although George and Charlotte are still trying to figure out who they want to be, proud mom Kate also previously revealed that her kids have expressed interest in playing sports.
“George is fascinated by fencing, but I think that’s because of the face shields,” she told equestrian and gold medalist Natasha Baker in 2016. Baker later revealed that Charlotte may have an interest in horseback riding. “I asked her how the children were, and she said Charlotte is really enjoying her riding, which is great to hear,” she shared. “I said we may see her here on a line-up in 20 years time. She emphasized that Charlotte has this passion about horses and although she doesn’t echo it, she’ll do her best to champion and encourage it.”
Last month, the royal kids cheered on their dad at the Maserati Royal Charity Polo Trophy in Beaufort Park and were able to see William compete in a sport that he loves. Hopefully by watching their dad, George and Charlotte may want to learn more about polo or even tennis but right now, they still have a lot of time to decide. Whatever they choose, we can definitely see Charlotte turn into an expert horseback rider and George as an amazing fencer!
