Prince William Opens Up About How Prince George Takes After Princess Diana

Prince William has never shied away from talking about his late mum, Princess Diana, however he recently opened up about how much Prince George reminds him of her, in a uniquely candid interview.

The Duke of Cambridge was chatting to Junior, a teen with a passion for dancing, during a reception held for the finalists of the Radio 1 Teen Awards at Kensington Palace.

The father-of-three revealed how his eldest child, George, has also been attending dance lessons and said he 'loves it'.

William compared his son's love of dancing to his mum's, explaining: "George is doing dancing as well, he loves it. And it's kind of... 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."

Junior, 14, was bullied for being a male dancer from the age of six which led him to set up his own anti-bullying social media campaign, titled #BoysCanDance.

The campaign has been spoken about in Parliament and Downing Street and has inspired hundreds of boys to dance and be proud.

While Will and Kate were hosting the teen heroes, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been busy continuing their royal tour, where the couple have been inspiring young and old.

Harry recently introduced Meghan to a war widow who he had met before in 2015 and 2017, during their visit to Sydney last week.

Daphne Dunne had waited in the pouring rain to meet the prince after managing to steel a kiss from him in the past.

The 98-year-old was wearing her late husband's Victoria Cross, when Harry bent to ask her about the cross, she stole a kiss from him again.

Harry introduced the war widow to the Duchess of Sussex, who clasped her hands and told her she'd heard 'many good things' about her.

Daphne was excitedly waiting to greet the couple - who had announced just days before that they're expecting their first child, with a bouquet of flowers outside the Sydney Opera House.
