On day 3 of the Ireland tour, Prince William and Kate visited Tribeton, a restaurant in Galway. They watched a cultural showcase of acts taking part in this year’s Galway 2020 European Capital of Culture events.
And while there, doting mom Kate couldn’t help but mentioning her children, George, Charlotte and Louis.
After the royal couple watched a performance by the band NØÖV, Kate asked the performers: “When did you all start playing?” she asked the performers.
“It has been so interesting hearing all the storytelling over the last couple of days. I wish we could have brought George and Charlotte along, they would have loved it.
“And George is starting to learn the guitar.”
“Charlotte is really into gymnastics, she’s doing cartwheels, handstands, everything. It’s so good for their basic skills of balance and coordination,” Kate revealed after while chatting with a pair of tightrope walkers.
William added: “And their flexibility, it’s really good for their long-term health, isn’t it? We went to watch the Cirque du Soleil recently, it was amazing.”
After speaking with a few attendees, Prince William also decided to show off his juggling skills. The Prince said: ‘I’ll try this in front of a load of you and flashing cameras, ha, here goes.’
He juggled like a professional with three balls, but when he tried to include a fourth ball, thins went less smoothly.
Prince William and Kate, who are known for being competitive and sports fans, finished of the tour with a visit to a local Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA) club.
They learned about the traditional sports which are popular across Ireland, and joined the children and young people from the club’s teams as they took part in matches on the pitch.
