Grylls, 47, explained that he didn’t “really mean” to encourage George to eat an ant that day, but the moment presented itself and he couldn’t resist.

“It was a privilege to give the future King his first ant, and his eyes lit up as they do with anyone when they’re out in the wild and they face a few fears and they overcome them, so good for him,” Grylls said. “What a little hero.”
Grylls ended up winning the Regatta that day, and mentioned George’s survivalist milestone during the awards ceremony.
