George is a bit of a water baby

Kate Middleton and Prince William‘s son Prince George definitely isn’t afraid of water.

Butterfly champ James Hickman learnt during a recent chat with Kate, 32, that she’s taken adorable George, one, to some baths and he really enjoyed having a paddle.

‘I know she’s been at the swimming [at the Commonwealth Games] so I thought I’d ask her if she’d been swimming with George,’ says James, 38.

‘She said she had. She said he loves the water and he grabs things to splash with.’

James caught up with Kate at a SportsAid charity event during the Games, which she’s checked out more than once with William, 32, and brother-in-law Prince Harry.

The trio watched athletics at Glasgow’s Hampden Park yesterday.

After hearing about George’s swimming from the Duchess of Cambridge, James reckons the little royal could end up being pretty successful in the pool one day.

‘Imagine him as the poster boy for a future Olympics,’ James tells ITV.

‘What a thought.’
