Prince William's aquatic elegance
WHO IS THIS MAJESTIC CREATURE? It's safe to say that Prince William was not a specimen designed for water (elegance-wise he's like the opposite of a seal. Streamlined and smart out of water, floppy and flailing when submerged).
PADDLING POOL: Shallow-end only for Big Willy Stylez. 'If you're not living life on the edge, you're taking up too much space'.
WHOA, WHOA; BACK UP: The moment the instructor asked Wills to traverse the pool to the big boys deep end.
SECRET GINGE? Sunlight reflected off of water has a definite Rojo-intensifying effect on the non-ginge-Prince's hair. But those teeth mean any paternity debates are dead in the water.
LEARNING FROM THE PROS: Will was a little embarrassed to see his swimming-level peers, but soon got over it and continued with the class studiously like the gent he is.
WE'RE ALL GO: The seven-year-old asks him if he's ready to take the plunge. His thumb says yes, his eyes scream no.
HE TOOK THE PLUNGE: Yolo.

The Duke of Cambridge slipped into some neoprene and showed off his aquatic prowess yesterday to mark his new role as the 'President of the British Sub-Aqua Club', resulting in this move-over-synchronised-swimmers photographic montage that encapsulates elegance.
To be fair, in live motion Prince William appeared to be quite a proficient swimmer and dealt with the whole scuba-gear-in-a-pool thing like a pro, but the ensuing photos are nothing short of hilarious.
The take away? Starting out in a pool is a perfectly normal part of the learning to scuba dive process, but it's about as elegant as a hippo in slippery mud and is not a moment that should be captured with 100 still photos.
