Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis offered incredible opportunity

PRINCE George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis have been offered training by the woman who coached Olympic gold medallist Adam Peaty.

She said: “We talked about swimming, his kids are really into swimming.

“I’ve said to him, when they’re old enough I’m more than happy to take them on the Olympic journey, keep them going, and I look forward to seeing them when they’re 18.”

The former swimmer, who won medals for Team GB from 2001 to 2008, retired after the Beijing Olympics, and later became head coach at a club in Derby.

She coached Mr Peaty to become the first British swimmer to retain an Olympic title in the final of the men’s 100m breaststroke, claiming his country’s first gold medal at Tokyo 2020.

Ms Marshall said swimming or any physical activity is “really important” for young people to take up in an increasingly “sedentary lifestyle”.

Speaking about female coaches in sport, she added: “I’d like to see a female coach in the NFL or the Premier League, that would be great.

“We’ve got to see it in the next century, we need to be working towards a place whereby we’re given a platform to be able to do that.

The mother-of-three said George plays the sport at school and little Louis likes to be in the “middle of everything”.

She described how George takes part in both rugby and netball with girls and boys at Thomas’s Battersea, adding: “Now that there is a move towards co-ed sport, so it’s not just girls playing netball, but other sports like rugby, which is great.”

The Duchess added of her youngsters’ love of rugby: “They’re all enjoying it, Louis is kamikaze, we’re worrying about when he gets older, he’ll be in the middle of everything.”
