In between William having a go at juggling, the royal couple spoke to performers at Tribeton in Galway.

Marvelling at a tight-rope performance Kate said: “Charlotte is really into gymnastics, she’s doing cartwheels, handstands, everything. It’s so good for their basic skills of balance and coordination.”

William added: “And their flexibility, it’s really good for their long-term health, isn’t it? We went to watch the Cirque du Soleil recently, it was amazing.”

Charlotte may have inherited her coordination skills from dad William, who did remarkably well juggling three balls at once.

However, he struggled when a fourth ball was added into the mix.

It has been previously reported that both Charlotte and George enjoy taking ballet lessons at their school, St Thomas’s in Battersea, London.

The Irish tour was widely regarded as a huge success, but it is uncertain when the couple will embark on another international tour.

They were due to tour Australia in the wake of the bushfires within the coming months, but it has been reported the trip may not be certain due to coronavirus fears.


According to a report with Australian news source 7 News, doubts have been cast over how safe it will be for the couple to tour the nation.

As with their most recent trip, the couple typically engage and shake hands with hundreds of people and travel on commercial flights.
