Just weeks after making her first pregnant public appearance, debuting her baby bump, Kate Middleton has showed that she’s back and fighting fit after suffering from severe morning sickness.

This week the Duchess of Cambridge made her first solo appearance since announcing her third pregnancy in September, wearing a black and white tracksuit and a pair of Nikes for a morning tennis session with Tennis for Kids, an initiative which encourages children aged five to eight to play her favorite sport.

While Kate played the popular sport with the children, she also showed off her growing baby bump, weeks after being ‘bump-shamed’ for her slim frame.


After a chat with tennis professional Johanna Konta, the Wimbledon star said: ‘It was good and fun. She’s lovely. It was great to see her passion for tennis and that she was here to learn about these great programs being run by the LTA.

‘Every little girl and almost every boy wants to meet a princess, and it got them very excited,’ she added.

The proud Mom also took the time to pick up some tips when it comes to teaching Prince George a few skills on the tennis court.


Lawn Tennis Association (LTA) coach Sam Richardson said: ‘She asked what kind of stuff [Prince George] should be doing. He is interested in tennis, but being four, he just wants to whack the ball. You have to wait for them to show interest.’

The Duchess reportedly also spoke to Judy Murray – tennis champion Andy Murray’s mother – who advised her to take the racket away from George and focus on skills with her little tyke, instead.


The Duchess had become a patron of the LTA last December, taking over from Queen Elizabeth II, who first assumed the position 64 years earlier.

We know for sure that it won’t be long before the royal children are making their way onto a court to compete with mom and dad.
