During a trip to the Caribbean, the royal couple, Kate Middleton and Prince William were seen scuba diving in Belize for an underwater experience. On Tuesday (March 22), a video posted to the couple's Twitter account showed the nature lovers diving straight into shark-infested seas in Belize, which, according to one social media post is home to the second-largest barrier reef in the world.

A narration from Prince William was included in the film, which showed the couple swimming with sharks. The couple wrote on Twitter, “on Sunday, we were lucky enough to spend time diving at South Water Caye, directly above the spectacular Belize Barrier Reef. It was a privilege to see for ourselves the world-leading ocean conservation work being done here.”  “While the effects of climate change are evident, the Government of Belize and communities across the country deserve huge recognition for their efforts to restore this incredible marine environment - with a commitment to protect 30% of it by 2030,” on another tweet they added.

Social media also reacted to these royal adventures as one person wrote, “Oh my god YES!!! We been waiting for this since we saw Matt Porteous among the photographers. Incredible footage--simply magnificent😍 Thank you Belize for being such warm gracious hosts & sharing your rich Mayan heritage w/the world 🇧🇿🤝🇬🇧👑🙏” “I can’t believe how absolutely fantastic this is. Gorgeous photographs and what an impactful way of highlighting both how stunning Belize is and the effects of climate change,” another person added. A royal fan said, "Stunning footage and surprise!! We need more of this!!"




According to The Sun, the couple sought the help of diving instructor Edward Betancourt and his daughter Marisha Betancourt for their underwater adventure, while famous photographer Matt Porteous, who is accompanying the couple on their tropical vacation, shot the documentary-style video footage.  

The Caribbean trip was dogged by controversy from the start, with the pair forced to cancel their first visit to Belize due to anti-colonial demonstrations. The two canceled their scheduled trip to a chocolate estate in Belize. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are continuing their warm-weather vacation with a stop in Jamaica, the final stop on their Bahamas tour. Meanwhile, the couple landed on the Caribbean island despite resistance and a demonstration demanding that the British monarchy pay reparations for slavery, as well as claims that the monarchy is considering removing Queen Elizabeth from her role as head of state.
