Royal celebration at inland dive site
The fun-filled day runs from 9am to 9pm, with a host of events for divers and their families. Included is a plan by some divers to drink a toast to the royal couple – at a depth of 20m.
The plan is to descend together before sipping home-prepared cocktails – non-alcoholic, naturally.
When the bottle tops are removed, surrounding water pressure ensures that the cocktail stays in place while the diver gets bottle to mouth.
Ashore, a large TV screen will be set up for visitors to follow the event in London.
The Gildenburgh celebration is apt, given the royals’ close association with diving.
Prince Philip was the British Sub-Aqua Club’s first president, while Prince Charles is President of the club today and dived on the Mary Rose before its salvage in 1982.
Princes William and Harry have also learned to dive.
William dived on the Great Barrier Reef during his recent visit to Australia and has hinted that he may well return there with his new bride to honeymoon – including, naturally, some more reef diving.
