On March 5, Duchess Kate shared some things her two eldest children enjoy doing while she and Prince William visited Tribeton, an events space in Galway, Ireland on the last day of their tour of the country.
The couple watched some performers who will be part of the upcoming European Capital of Culture event this year and tried their hands at juggling. The acrobats, musicians and circus performers seriously impressed the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
After watching a performance by Galway band NØÖV, Kate opened up about how she's letting her kids explore the arts and encouraging them to get exercise.
"It has been so interesting hearing all the storytelling over the last couple of days," Kate told the group, according to HELLO! UK. "I wish we could have brought George and Charlotte along, they would have loved it. And George is starting to learn guitar."
Kate also told several athletes that her daughter is learning some of the basics and she and William are encouraging her to explore her new passion.
"Charlotte is really into gymnastics," Kate said. "She's doing cartwheels, handstands, everything. It's so good for their basic skills of balance and coordination."
"And their flexibility," William added. "It's really good for their long-term health, isn't it? We went to watch the Cirque du Soleil recently. It was amazing."
This was the final day of the Cambridges' tour of Ireland, and following this engagement they stepped out to Tig Coili, a traditional pub in the city centre. Their last engagement in the country was at a Gaelic Athletics Association club, where they learned to play Gaelic soccer and hurling, Ireland's national sport, which has been played for more than 4,000 years! The competitive Cambridges scored a few points after having a bit of a rough start and missing the first few hurling balls that were thrown their way, but they took to the sport and it looked like they had a fantastic time!
