The Windsor’s are an athletic family – Zara with her Olympic show-jumping, Kate with all that field hockey playing – so would it be too much to imagine a future for the royal baby as a professional surfer?
Not if you’re the mayor of Manly, a suburb in Sydney, Australia. The highest municipal authority in the beach-front community has already revealed her gift for the princely tyke when he comes to town – and quel surprise, it’s a surf board. When Wills, Kate, and little George swing by on April 18th (part of their tour of Australia and New Zealand),
Mayor Jean Hay will gift the 8 month old (still figuring out that whole ‘balance’ thing, we assume) a custom surfboard, decorated ‘Greetings from Manly!’. That’s actually not the most bizarre thing young George has received ahead of the breathlessly-anticipated royal tour. There’s a
re-gifted sweater from Grampa Charles, a bunch of marsupials called Bilbies, and even his very own crocodile from the people of Australia’s north. At least a surfboard doesn’t have teeth?
