Kate Middleton Says She's Become Less Sporty Since Having Prince George And Princess Charlotte

The royal was greeted with big hugs from excited pupils at Bond Primary School


Raising a four-year-old, a two-year-old, and preparing for baby number three can't lend for much 'me' time, so we're not surprised Kate Middleton hasn't been able to take part in many of the sports that she so loves.

Yesterday, the 36-year-old royal was visiting Bond Primary School in south west London, where she joined young students as they took part in Wimbledon Junior Tennis Initiative training sessions and activities, and admitted that she misses playing the game.


'I love tennis, I think it's a great sport, I was really sporty when I was little, less so now that I've got lots of babies,' Kate reportedly told the children as she patted her baby bump (via E!).

'But keep it up, it's great to be active, as everyone's been saying here today. It's been a real pleasure to meet all of you.'

Kate - who is Patron of the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club - also shook hands and played games with pupils, and happily cuddled some of the children who went in for big hugs.

Earlier this week, Prince William and Kate visited Coventry's Rising Café in Coventry, a social enterprise aimed at providing work and opportunity for those overcoming drug and alcohol addictions.

The royal couple were presented with tea and home-made cakes - with a small jug of almond milk especially set aside for Kate.

This prompted Kate to joke that people shouldn't believe everything they read - because she doesn't even like almond milk (via People).

Noted, just in case we ever manage to get her over for tea...
