On Tuesday, Prince William hosted a very special group of young people from around the world.
The Diana Award, the only charity set up in the late royal’s name, is honoring an exceptional new group of youngsters in the latest Legacy Awards.
During the event, Prince William met Olivia Hancock, 14, who was given an accolade for her work promoting equality among the sexes in football. Chatting with her, William also talked about his own experiences with Prince George and Princess Charlotte.
She said: “So when I was chatting with Prince William he said to me, when he plays football with George and Charlotte, when Charlotte’s in goal George says to her that ‘Charlotte I’m better than you’.”
She said that William told his son: “‘George, Charlotte could be as good as you'”, adding: “It’s great to hear that Prince William is saying that to George.”
Prince William and Kate aren’t letting royal titles get in the way of being a hands-on parents. Fans already know that the couple loves spending time with their children and for them have a normal childhood involving outdoor activities.
Besides playing football, Kate has previously revealed that George and Charlotte like to hunt for spiders in their garden “for hours.”
The Cambridges split their time between their home at Kensington Palace and Anmer Hall, their country house in Norfolk. They spend most of the school holidays there and it’s the place they can well and truly relax.
The country home provides the family with much more privacy and the homes sprawling grounds are great for the children who want to run around and play without worrying about photographers. The area is also a no-fly zone thanks to the efforts of the two parents.
