Prince George and Princess Charlotte have reportedly taken up one of the Queen's favourite hobbies.
- The Cambridge children have been learning a new hobby over the past few months
- According to The Times, Prince William is very happy his children have shown an interest in the pastime
- In other royal news (opens in new tab), the Queen's bridesmaid has shared a hilarious prank the monarch played during a royal tour (opens in new tab)
The Times has reported that over the last few months all three of Prince William and Duchess Catherine's children have been learning to ride at the Cambridges' family home in Norfolk.
Horse riding is big in the royal family, so it's no surprise that Her Majesty's great grandchildren are following in her footsteps.
The Queen has ridden horses for almost her entire life, and has continued to enjoy doing so during lockdown (opens in new tab). An insider told Vanity Fair last May that the monarch was "making the most of the time" by "riding out every day".
According to the publication, George, Charlotte and Louis have "been keen on having their own ponies for some time", while George has previously taken lessons on a pony that once belonged to Zara Tindall. Royal fans will know that she and her mother, Princess Anne, have both represented Great Britain in the sport at the Olympics.
Prince William is also reportedly "thrilled" at his children's interest in riding, as both he and his brother Prince Harry learned when they were children.
As well as being delighted that their children want to learn to ride, William and Kate are also keen for their children to learn the practical side of looking after horses – including mucking out.
Hopefully one day we'll be lucky enough to see pictures of the three children enjoying their new hobby!
