The adorable trait Prince George shares with his grandmother, Princess Diana.

He never met his grandmother, but apparently, Prince George shares at least one loveable trait with Princess Diana.

Prince William shared that his late mother and his five-year-old son had something in common during an event at Kensington Palace last week: their love of dancing.

The 36-year-old offered the insight while chatting to one of the teenaged finalists of the BBC Radio 1 Teen Hero Awards, champion street dancer, Junior Frood.

“George is doing dancing as well, he loves it,” William told the 14-year-old.

“My mother always used to dance, she loved dancing.

“And if it’s something you love, you do what you love. Don’t let anyone else tell you otherwise. Keep at it.”

The Duke of Cambridge said that, on the other hand, his dancing skills weren’t so spectacular.

“I can’t do it. I can’t even dance properly,” he told Junior after inquiring about the teen’s ability to spin on his head.

When his wife Kate insisted that he loved break dancing, William made a classic dad joke: “Breakdancing where I usually break myself.”

Junior was one of eight teens who had been invited to the palace after being named as Teen Heroes for their achievements and charity work in 2018.

Prince William has previously said that he wants to make sure that his three children know about their late grandmother.

In the 2017 documentary Diana, Our Mother: Her Life and Legacy, the royal said he was always speaking to Prince George and Princess Charlotte (Prince Louis wasn't in the picture then) about "Granny Diana".

"It's important that they know who she was and that she existed."
