Kate Middleton Certifies as Advanced Diver

Kate Middleton obtained her Advanced Open Water certification on a holiday to Saint Vincent 

The Duchess of Cambridge has completed her advanced training on a recent trip to the Caribbean, following the lead of husband Prince William who has been a diver since his childhood.

Kate successfully completed the obligatory deep dive to 30m and a course in underwater navigation plus three other PADI specialties as part of the course. 

'Diving is something the Duchess very much enjoys, and the Duke of Cambridge, who is president of the British Sub-Aqua Club, has said in the past that he is hopeful his children will become interested in the sport,' a Kensington Palace spokesperson told The Telegraph.
