The former Olympic athlete noted the importance of water safety for children. “The awareness of the need to learn to swim, which is very important. I’m not saying I want kids to go to the Olympic Games, but to maybe give an opportunity to those that are not able to get to facilities.”  And she clearly is passionate about the subject. “You know, I can teach an 18-month-old toddler to swim,” Charlene said. These days, she swims four times per week, in the sea. And she laughed when we asked if her husband’s swimming has improved since they met. “He needs his backstroke!” Princess Charlene said."
