Prince William, who is the current president of the British Sub-Aqua Club (BSAC), and his wife Kate enjoyed a previously unannounced scuba diving during their Caribbean tour. The couple was seen exploring Belize’s beautiful barrier reef in a video posted on their official social media accounts.
In the voiceover of the footage Prince William is saying: “It’s really fantastic to see the underwater environment here in Belize and what wonderful work they’ve been doing to protect the coral and fish life.
“Belize’s work on marine protection is world-leading, which is crucial when you’re protecting the world’s second-largest barrier reef and in fact, it’s a UNESCO world heritage site.

“It’s great to see their commitments go further and further. We should support them and value their efforts to protect both the marine and the land environments.”
Prince William is the third generation of the monarchy to take the position at the British Sub-Aqua Club (Bsac) in 2014. Previously his father, the Prince of Wales, and grandfather, the Duke of Edinburgh, took on the role before him.
Prince William also revealed hopes that his son, Prince George, would grow up to enjoy the wonders of snorkelling and scuba diving as much as himself and that he would work with BSAC to encourage other youngsters into the sport.
A few years ago, Prince William spoke to BSAC members about his hopes that his son Prince George would “follow in our footsteps”.
“I hope that one day my son, George, will also experience the wonders that snorkeling and scuba diving have to offer,” he said.
“I hope that one day my son George might follow in our footsteps.
