Duchess Kate can now dive up to a depth of 30 metres in open water
The Duke of Cambridge and Kate’s family the Middletons regularly holiday in Mustique, where William has gone on deep dives to look for sharks. It is thought that Kate earned the qualification from a diving school in the private Caribbean island.
Kate’s decision to complete the diving course may have been influenced by her husband, who is a keen diver and last year took over his father Prince Charles to become the president of the British Sub-Aqua Club (BSAC).
