Prince William has spoken about the difficulty of bathing Prince George

Speaking after he put on his aqua gear at the British Sub-Aqua Club (BSAC) gathering in London, he joked: "At the moment bath time is quite painful, but hopefully donning a snorkel and mask might calm him down."

"I'd like to get back into British waters." Duchess Kate is also a member of the BSAS and did some diving in north Wales where they lived until last autumn.
