The One Hobby Prince George & Princess Charlotte Have in Common with Camilla Parker Bowles

It appears Prince George and Princess Charlotte have something in common with Camilla Parker Bowles.

The Duchess of Cornwall, 72, confessed that she’s been taking ballet lessons, just like her grandchildren. Bowles discussed the new hobby during a radio interview on BBC’s Emma Barnett Show and revealed that she recently scaled back on lessons due to an injury.

“I managed to obviously do something wrong, did something to my back, so I’ve laid off it for a bit,” she said. “But I can’t wait to get back to it again—you feel so well afterwards.”

We never thought Bowles would be interested in wearing pink tights and a tutu, but we’re not totally surprised by the hobby, since her two grandchildren are also involved. While Prince George is taking a ballet course at his school, Thomas’s Battersea School, Char is enrolled in a private dance school in South London, according to People.

The Cambridge kids were first introduced to ballet back in 2018. In addition to private lessons, Kate Middleton took Princess Charlotte to the Royal Opera House for a pre-rehearsal performance of The Nutcracker. The rest, as they say, is history.

Perhaps this calls for a joint ballet recital starring Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Bowles?
