The Duchess of Cambridge has officially reached the depths of cool — and the ocean. According to The Telegraph, Kensington Palace has confirmed that Princess Kate now qualifies as an advanced diver. The certification will allow her to keep up with her ocean-loving husband while the two go shark-diving in Mustique.

Now that the Duchess can dive to a depth of 98 feet, she's going to need some appropriate swimwear. While Cynthia Rowley's bright wet suits would flatter Kate, it's more likely she'll go for something more muted, like this rash guard by Seea Hermosa. And, of course, don't forget the surf spray.
