Prince George has actually simply attained a big milestone, according to survivalist Bear Grylls— although royal rules experts may not approve.

Kate Middleton and Prince William’s child joined the couple for a day out on the water with Grylls, as the 3 of them competed in a charity cruising race off the Island of Wight.

Grylls wound up winning the race– and according to People, he praised the 6-year-old for eating an ant during his acceptance speech.

“And also Prince George, your first ant you ate today,” Grylls informed the crowd.

“And that is a terrific moment. Well done, you,” he included.

In a humorous turn of occasions, Middleton was disqualified from the tournament.

After an initial false start, her boat was disqualified for not going back to the beginning line, suggesting the duchess finished in last place.

While TV star Grylls was gifted the King’s Cup for coming first location, Middleton was granted a wood spoon for her efforts.
