The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were “fascinated” in a video diving in the second largest barrier reef in the world in Belize.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince William and his wife Kate Middleton, had a whole new experience diving with sharks while on an expedition to the second largest barrier reef in the world located in Belize.
The royal couple is on tour in the Caribbean, through their Twitter account the dukes showed a video of their experience this Tuesday afternoon.
The 43-second clip shows the pair swimming a short distance away and making an “Ok” hand signal showing that all is well as they show off the marine life and stunning coral formation.
During the narration of the video, Prince William confirmed that the experience had been “really fantastic” and praised the “wonderful work” of the people who coordinated the tour as well as the protection of corals and marine life in the area.

“It’s really fantastic to see the underwater environment here in Belize, and what a wonderful job they’ve been doing to protect the coral and fish life,” added William.
In the video and other published images you can see small fish and sharks that swam around them. The Duke of Cambridge said “Belize’s work on marine protection is world leading, which is crucial when you are protecting the world’s second largest barrier reef and indeed, it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.”
William and Kate left Belize after a four-day visit in which they enjoyed the nation’s heritage, Mayan culture and dancing with the locals.
Their next stop is expected to be in Jamaica as part of their Caribbean tour, where they will then visit Trench Town, the Kingston neighborhood where reggae artist Bob Marley grew up.
