Former Olympian Offers To Train George, Charlotte And Louis Their Favorite Sport

The Cambridges’ three little royals, George, Charlotte and Louis, have received an amazing opportunity that might just take one of their favorite hobbies to the next level!

Melanie Marshall, a former Olympian who won medals for Team GB from 2001 to 2008 and gold medalist Adam Peaty’s coach has offered to train the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s three children after learning of their love of swimming.

During her MBE ceremony at Windsor Castle, this Tuesday Melanie told Prince William that Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis could all be great future swimmers.


She later stated: “We talked about swimming, his kids are really into swimming. I’ve said to him, when they’re old enough I’m more than happy to take them on the Olympic journey, keep them going, and I look forward to seeing them when they’re 18.”

The Duke has said in the past that he and the Duchess of Cambridge have taught their children to swim, saying that George and Charlotte are fairly confident in the water.

Back during the February half term in 2019, Kate was spotted swimming with George and Charlotte, even organizing races for her children during their visit to a luxury hotel complex in Norfolk.

If the young royals were to become Olympic athletes they wouldn’t be alone in the family, their great-aunt Princess Anne was the first royal to become an Olympian competing in the 1976 Montreal games, with her daughter Zara Tindall following in her footsteps and even winning the silver medal at the 2012 London games as part of Team GB’s eventing team.
