While the world’s eyes were on baby Archie’s christening, another royal kiddo was also making headlines. Prince George recently took to the courts—with a private lesson by tennis superstar Roger Federer!

Forget about taking tennis lessons at the local community club. When you’re a royal, you get a true pro as your coach.

According to reports, Federer took a break during Wimbledon play to visit Prince William and Kate Middleton’s eldest at the family’s home in Berkshire. Like any other five-year-old, George isn’t exactly ready for Grand Slam action, but it looks like the young Prince is well on his way to learning how to play.

Federer reportedly said of giving George tennis lessons, “At that stage it’s all about just touch the ball, it’s already good. Same with my boys.” He also added, “His mum has always enjoyed their tennis. I hope that he’ll still say the same in a few years’ time.”
