Bear Grylls about Prince George while eating an ant
It’s not common to meet a king, let alone get one to eat an insect, but Bear Grylls remembers the moment he made Prince George eat an ant.
On Good Morning Britain, Bear Grylls said how the future king’s eyes lit up after trying the Beetle.
Susanna Reid, asked: “You encouraged President Obama to eat a half-eaten salmon, you also encouraged our future king to eat some ants, didn’t you?”
Grylls, OBE and British Adventurer stated, “Well, I didn’t really mean, I mean, we did something for Prince William’s Kings Cup event, we were down there and the royal family was there.
“And it was actually the Duchess of Cambridge’s mother who said, ‘Would you come and say hello to Prince George, he’s a huge fan of your Netflix interactive adventure show.’
“And so we were talking and he was down here and just as we were talking there was a stream of ants running down his feet and he and I were looking at her, he was looking at me with those astonished big eyes and I said : Come on, we have to eat one. ‘
“And he said ‘Oh really?’ and we ate, and it was a privilege to give the future king his first ant. “
