Are marathons in Prince George’s future? His father, Prince William, claims that the royal baby is well on his way to sprinting — just weeks after learning how to walk!
The closer we get to Prince George‘s first birthday, which is July 22, the more intimate details we learn about his royal life. Prince William, 31, has revealed that even though his nearly one-year-old son has only just started to walk on his own, running is already in his immediate future.
Prince William Believes Prince George Will Be Running Soon
Hey, a one-year-old has to put their energy somewhere!
On Wednesday, July 16, Prince William spent the day with small children at a school sports day in Coventry, where he opened up about his son, Prince George.
“I think George will be running faster than me very soon,” the prince told head teacher Gill Naylor, reports People.
William shared this tidbit of information shortly after kicking off a 30-meter dash at the school sporting event. Once the race was over, he helped hand out medals at the finish line. How exciting for those children!
So, does this mean that Prince George will be sprinting all the way to his throne one day? Maybe! After all, on Father’s Day he showed that he is already walking just one month before hitting his first birthday.
Prince William Joked With Kids During The Sports Event
Once the school sports day ended, Prince William stuck around so that he could pose for a few pictures with the handful of lucky students.
Some of the kids were a bit tired after their day of activities, so Prince William had to switch on his charm and sarcasm to get them smiling for him.
“Look excited, be happy!” the prince told the kids, who laughed and raised their hands over their heads for a brand new photo. “That’s better,” Prince William told the kids.
Too cute! William is obviously very good with children, so that makes George a very lucky little prince. He’s got a hilarious daddy!
