Prince George Learns to Swim

JOHN STILLWELL/AFP/Getty Images(LONDON) – It’s the biggest little secret and now it can be revealed: Everyone’s favorite prince is learning to swim.

Like his father and grandfather before him, Prince George is experiencing the royal splash-about with his mother at the world’s most exclusive gym, the Buckingham Palace pool. Kate was seen driving in to the grounds of Buckingham Palace with George and a nanny in tow on his birthday Tuesday.

Many assumed she had brought him to visit his grandfather, but the Duchess of Cambridge has been teaching the future king how to swim.

Both William and Kate are avid water sports buffs. Prince William captained his water polo team and Kate is understood to do laps at the Palace pool to stay fit.

Princess Diana took William and Harry to Buckingham Palace as young boys. She too was an avid swimmer, and wanted her sons to benefit from all the enjoyment that water sports bring.

The pool is located in the rear of the Palace in a stunning conservatory-type area adjacent to the beautiful back gardens. Generations of royal children have enjoyed the pool and now Prince George is among them.

At a recent event at the British Sub-Aqua Club, Prince Charles passed the presidency to his son Prince William and reminisced how he too taught his son to love the water.

“I threw him in the pool on occasions. Instead of putting him off, it enthused him,” Charles said.

“I hope one day my son George might follow in our footsteps,” added William. “At the moment, bath time is quite painful but hopefully donning a snorkel and mask might calm him down “

Mark Hamill Talks About Being Back on Star Wars Set

Mark Hamill couldn’t be more thrilled to be back playing Luke Skywalker and he talked about it’s like to be on set and with old friends Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher.

“I never thought we’d come back. I still can’t believe it’s happening,” Hamill told BBC News. “To go on to those sets that evoke so many memories, is just astonishing. I have real ties to this country [England], my son was born when we were making Empire Strikes Back…it just seems like an unexpected gift.”

Hamill also updated fans on Ford’s status. The actor was injured last month and suffered a broken leg.

Hamill was not on set at the time of the injury, but said, “It sounded terrible, but I hear he’s doing really well. It’ll take more than that to stop Harrison Ford.”

Hamill also touched on working with the new cast.

“It’s really about the new generation of characters, we are just there to lend our support and grow contractually obligated beards,” he said. “These kids…they are so talented, I was just overwhelmed. They are also diverse. There are people I recognize like Andy Serkis and new people I’d never seen before. But they are so good, I am thinking about asking them for advice.”
