Prince William reveals a wonderful interest his son George shares with his grandmother Princess Diana

Prince William and Kate Middleton are constantly under the media spotlight, but although we see them often enough we don’t really know much about their ever-growing family life.

The couple work hard to protect the privacy of their three children: 5-year-old Prince George, Princess Charlotte, 3, and Prince Louis, who is six months old.

But every now and then we find out bits of information that gets us closer to this wonderful family and heirs to the throne. In a recent interview Prince William revealed a special pastime of his son Prince George that he seems to have inherited from his grandmother, Princess Diana, according to the Mirror.

Speaking to the finalists of the BBC Radio 1 Teen Awards he met a 14-year-old boy called Junior who was being recognized for the anti-bullying work he has done after being teased for dancing.

When William spoke to Junior, he told him that young Prince George also loves dancing and as parents they are encouraging it.

“George is doing dancing as well, he loves it,” Prince William told Junior.

He then revealed that it was a hobby close to his heart as his mother Princess Diana was always dancing. The much-loved princess died in a car accident in Paris in 1997. She never got to see her loving sons marry or enjoy her three grandchildren.

In the same conversation Kate revealed that William loved break dancing to which William joked: “Breakdancing is where I break myself”.

Even George’s little sister Princess Charlotte enjoys dancing, William revealed in a previous interview.

Prince William explained to Junior, who was a special guest at  Kensington Palace, that dancing was one of Diana’s favorite pastimes.

“My mother always used to dance. She loved dancing. And if it’s something you love, you do what you love. Don’t let anyone else tell you otherwise. Keep at it,” he told Junior who said after how encouraged he was by the prince’s words.

It’s so wonderful that a love of Diana lives on in her grandchildren. She would have made a wonderful grandmother.

A statue of Diana, Princess of Wales will be erected in the grounds of Kensington Palace at the request of her sons, The Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry. The Princes have convened a committee to commission and privately raise funds for the creation of the statue. This committee will advise on the selection of the sculptor and will work with Historic Royal Palaces on the statue's installation in the public gardens at Kensington Palace. The Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry said: "It has been twenty years since our mother's death and the time is right to recognise her positive impact in the UK and around the world with a permanent statue. "Our mother touched so many lives. We hope the statue will help all those who visit Kensington Palace to reflect on her life and her legacy." While the sculpting of the statue will begin soon, it is not currently possible to advise when it will be unveiled. It is hoped that this will occur before the end of 2017. Further announcements on the statue's sculptor and design will be made in due course.
