Royal dip

THE Duke of Cambridge donned a wetsuit and went scuba diving to mark becoming president of the British Sub-Aqua Club.

Wearing a mask, air cylinder, buoyancy device and fins, William swam to the bottom of an open-air pool with a group of other divers at the Oasis Sports Centre in central London.

William was joined by his father, the Prince of Wales, who had been BSAC president for 40 years.

Prince Charles joked that his son's interest stemmed from the many times he had thrown him into a swimming pool, adding his son would now demonstrate his "buff credentials".
