Prince George and his late grandmother, Princess Diana, share more in common than originally thought.

It seems as if Prince George received more than just his blonde locks from his late grandmother Princess Diana. 

Well, it’s now no longer a secret and we all know that Prince George has also got her enviable dance skills! The future King, Prince William, enthusiastically told the seven-year-old has developed a certain linking for dance. It was first reported in 2018, when he was only five-years-old, that Prince George is taking dance classes.

Royal fans fondly remembered that Princess of Wales, Diana, also loved dancing when she was younger. “George is doing dancing as well, he absolutely loves and enjoys it,” William boasted. On the occasion, Prince William was also quoted saying “My mother always used to dance, she also loved dancing.”

The Duke of Cambridge encourages his children and other kids to continue following their passions regardless of what people say, much like his late mother did. “If it’s something you love, you do what you love. Don’t let anyone else tell you otherwise. Keep at it,” William said.

While the Princess of Wales, Diana, was more famous for her charitable acts and bold fashion, not many people remember or know of Diana’s obscure talents onstage. Once, she succeeded in surprising Prince Charles and supporters of the Royal Opera House with a vibrant jazz/ballet routine to the tune of Billy Joel’s “Uptown Girl.” The performance was intended to be an ultra-exclusive appearance, but photographs of Diana pirouetting across the stage were ultimately leaked. 

Then there was the very extraordinary and public dance Diana shared with John Travolta at one of President Reagan’s White House galas in November 1985. The Princess and the Grease actor impressed the crowds for nearly 15 minutes.

Princess Diana donned a beautiful off-the-shoulder black gown. And in the decades following Travolta would continue to rave about the experience. He once said, “That was one of the highlights of my life, so that’s probably the best moment of the ’80s.”

It’s a tough act to follow, but we have all the confidence in Prince George. After all, he is her grandson!
