Kate Middleton has returned to her official duties, this time playing tennis with kids during a royal appearance.
The 35-year-old royal visited the National Tennis Center in London on Tuesday as she took over patron duties for the Lawn Tennis Association for Queen Elizabeth.
Even though the Duchess of Cambridge is pregnant with her third child, her visit to the tennis center proved that she isn’t afraid to break a sweat as she joined in the games. Kate teamed up with a group of children participating in the Tennis for Kids campaign. The sporty Duchess even took part in running basic drills strutting her athlete capabilities.
This wasn’t the first time Kate joined in the game. In past events she has played soccer, joined in a volleyball match, and even raced her husband, Prince William, in a rowing match.
For the active event, Middleton was causally clad in black sweatpants, white sneakers, and a zip-up black jacket. The faintest hint of her baby bump was visible beneath the loose-fitted clothing.
This morning The Duchess of Cambridge, as Patron of the Lawn Tennis Association (LTA), visited the National Tennis Centre to learn more about how the LTA is getting more people, from all different background, to get involved in tennis. HRH took part in a tennis coaching session which was run by Coach Core apprentices. Coach Core is in an apprenticeship scheme, founded by The Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry, that trains young people who are not in education or employment to be sports coaches.
