LONDON, Aug 2, 2015:
Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, has passed an advanced scuba diving course. This means she can keep up with her husband when he goes shark-diving in Mustique
The Telegraph reported that the Duke of Cambridge has been diving for much of his life, encouraged by his father the Prince of Wales, whom he succeeded last year as president of the British Sub-Aqua Club.
Kate’s pursuit of advanced diving qualifications, to enable her to dive to the same depth as the Duke, has until now remained a secret.
Kensington Palace confirmed to The Telegraph that the Duchess has passed a Professional Association of Diving Instructors (PADI) Advanced Open Water Diver qualification, meaning she can dive to a depth of 30 metres (98ft).
The qualification has enabled the Duchess to join her husband on deep dives to look for sharks during holidays in the Middleton family’s regular haunt of Mustique.
To pass the PADI advanced qualification divers must complete a total of five dives, including a deep dive and an underwater navigation dive, during which they are taught how to cope with the physiological effects of deeper scuba diving.
