Prince William shocks people after speaking fluent Swahili in Tanzania – Video. The much loved Royal Family has been in the news for the right reasons lately, from Prince Harry’s famous Springbok affection, and now his older brother, The Duke of Cambridge, Prince William has gone viral after he shocked the world and mostly Africans by speaking fluent Swahili at a recent ceremony.
The 37-year-old was attending the Princess Diana Legacy Awards when struck up a conversation with one of the recipients of the awards, Erick Venant (25) from Tanzania. While Eric was preparing to address the Duke of Cambridge in English, he got the shock of his life when Prince William spoke to him in perfect Swahili, which is the most spoken language in Africa with over 100 million speakers.
Social media and attendees at the ceremony described the exchange as special. The Chief Executive of the ceremony,
Tessy Ojo said ” It wasn’t just one sentence. This wasn’t something he had just read out of a book – this young boy was gobsmacked”. This was not the first time William has revealed his linguistic prowess, he did the exact same (speaking in Swahili) to the Tanzanian president last year.
Despite his hectic schedule, the Prince had taken time before the event to read up on all the names and history pf the recipients and had taken time to speak with each person at the afternoon tea. Something which is very admirable. It is also believed the prince self-taught himself Swahili and is also proficient in French, Welsh, Gaelic and a little Spanish.
