Prince George definitely enjoyed his day at the King’s Cup Regatta on Thursday after eating his first ant, according to Bear Grylls.

It seems Prince George had his first taste of an off-the-menu item during Thursday’s sailing race.

He and his sister, Princess Charlotte, were among the spectators who watched the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge go against celebrities in a sailing match.

Celebrity Bear Grylls gave a shout out to the little prince who ate his very first ant on that day. While accepting his trophy at the prize-giving ceremony, he suggested that George had tasted a weird treat.

“And also Prince George, your first ant you ate today. And that is a great moment. Well done you,” Grylls said.


Prince William and Kate Middleton shared a laugh as they waited on stage. The royals, along with other celebrities, competed to represent their chosen charities in the event, including Child Bereavement UK for the duke, and the Royal Foundation for the duchess.

Among the other charities chosen were London’s Air Ambulance Charity’s 30th-anniversary campaign, Tusk, Centrepoint, Place2Be, Action on Addiction, and the Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families.


The first King’s Cup trophy started in 1920, under the watch of King George V, and was continued by William and Middleton this year. The prize was snagged by Grylls this year as his competitors congratulated him.



Apart from the competition, the royal siblings stole the limelight as they both had adorable moments before the crowd. The six-year-old prince grinned while onboard, showing his missing two front teeth to everyone.

On the other hand, his sister stuck her tongue out instead of waving at the people who watched the event. Middleton encouraged Charlotte to greet everyone with a wave but did otherwise.
