Prince William recently admitted that he listens to AC/DC to get himself prepared for royal engagements.
The 39-year-old William shared his love for the band during a special Christmas episode of Apple Fitness+’s “Time To Walk” series, which premieres on December 6.
Speaking about his love of music, Prince William said: “There’s nothing better than, on a Monday morning, when you’re a bit bleary-eyed after the weekend and trying to get yourself back into the grind of the week, listening to AC/DC, ‘Thunderstruck’.
“I have to say the first time I put it on, and I’ve heard it a million times now, I was kind of, like, ‘Well, this is quite heavy for a Monday morning,'” he continued. “But now, when I listen to it, it’s the best tonic for a Monday morning. It absolutely wakes you up, puts your week in the best mood possible, and you feel like you can take on anything and anyone. I’d imagine you’re going to walk quite fast listening to it, maybe with a skip in your step, with the headbanging. It’s a difficult song not to dance to or to nod along to.”
Prince William also went on to reveal how his children, 8 year-old Prince George, six year old Princess Charlotte and 3-year-old Prince Louis, also share his love of music, saying: “What I’ve been amazed by is how much my children already have inherited my family’s love of music. Most mornings, there’s a massive fight between Charlotte and George as to what song is played in the morning. And I have to, now, basically prioritise that one day someone does this one, and another day it’s someone else’s turn. So George gets his go, then Charlotte gets her go. Such is the, the clamor for the music.”
He added: “One of the songs that the children are loving at the moment is Shakira, ‘Waka Waka’. There’s a lot of hip movements going along. There’s a lot of dressing up. Charlotte, particularly, is running around the kitchen in her dresses and ballet stuff and everything. She goes completely crazy with Louis following her around trying to do the same thing. It’s a really happy moment where the children just enjoy dancing, messing around, and, and singing.”
Prince William got together with Apple Fitness+ to record one of their inspiring audio walking experiences, which features personal stories from influential people to inspire users to get into the spirit of walking.
