How is Prince Harry, and other royals, celebrating Halloween?


Duchess of Cambridge, Kate, is going as a tennis fan for Halloween! The ever-enthusiastic player (she and Prince William have a court at home at Anmer Hall) will spend the spooky day courtside during a visit to the Lawn Tennis Association on Tuesday, Oct. 31

During the sports event, she will watch several on-court sessions, including a wheelchair tennis demonstration, and will be taking part in the Tennis for Kids session.

It’s an LTA-run program which teaches young children, ages 5 to 8 years old, how to play and enjoy tennis. She will also get the opportunity to meet some of the country’s top junior talents. Accompanying them will be other members of the training team including coaches, nutritionists and physical therapists.

The 35-year-old royal isn’t the only royal with exciting plans for Halloween.

Prince Harry is going stateside for the inaugural summit of the Obama Foundation in Chicago on Tuesday. This visit will result in a reunion with his pal and fellow champion of veterans, former First Lady Michelle Obama.

Kate, who is expecting her third child in April, became the patron of the LTA in December 2016. She took over this patronage from Queen Elizabeth, who held the role for 63 years. The whole family of Middletons’ love the game of Tennis. This summer, Kate revealed mom Carole Middleton’s tennis crush.

Roger [Federer] is my mother’s favourite player. I don’t think she will mind me saying that! I think he probably knows that too,” she said. For Kate, watching Wimbledon was a family tradition growing up.

“It is such a quintessential part of English summer,” she says. “I was really taken by Agassi and Sampras, Ivanisevic and Steffi Graf. That for me was my first memories.” She and her family would go to the championships before she was a royal, and she calls the atmosphere “incredible.”
