Yesterday, 38-year-old Prince William reported that the famous Colombian singer Shakira joined the board of the Earthshot Prize environmental award. On this occasion, the Duke called the 43-year-old star by zoom and thanked her for being part of this important event.
But they also spoke about non-environmental topics. Thus, Prince William expressed a strong interest in Shakira's passion for skateboarding. He admitted that he watched a video of her skateboarding in the parking lot and was very impressed.
One of my team members showed me this video. You skateboard a lot, right?
вЂ” William said.
After laughing, Shakira couldn't believe the Duke really saw it, but he rushed to dispel her doubts. Seeing Prince William's interest, the singer told how keen she was on skateboarding.
I always looked at skaters and was very jealous of them. I have always dreamed of being able to skate just like them. And this year вЂ” I don't know what happened to me вЂ” I tried to put my kids on a skateboard. I took them to one of the shops, but they were not very interested in this. What can not be said about me! Now I can't stop skating. And I also surf.
вЂ” she confessed.
Prince William noted that it is very important to discover new hobbies, as they make life more joyful and happy.
I like that you have found something that you really love. That's what life is all about, isn't it? You learn something new all along the way,
вЂ” he concluded.
