It’s no secret that William and Kate is one sporty pair. No matter where there they are, fans can be guaranteed to see them playing the country’s local sport.
And while their first two kids are at the age of choosing their hobbies, their father is crossing his fingers for two sports in particular.
When Kate and William attended the Wimbledon finals together on Sunday, the couple caught up with their friend and fellow parent, Novak Djokovic. It was after he took home his fourth win in the championships.
On asking the royal couple how their kids are, the two replied: “very well. Just trying to get a tennis racket in their hands”. Then, an avid soccer fan, the father of three added: “And a football too”.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are both huge fans of tennis.
We think Kate Middleton has her fingers crossed, too, given her penchant for all things athletic. The day before stepping out with William, Kate and Meghan made their first-ever joint appearance together to watch Serena Williams play.
The Duchess of Cambridge has said that tennis is already on her children’s list of extracurricular activities. When she met retired player Greg Rusedski at Wimbledon last year, she said: “George has a racket and he enjoys playing tennis”.
Greg later revealed: “Catherine says with George just being four, he wants to whack a ball. So, she was asking what sort of stuff she should be doing. They will struggle at that age to hit a ball”.
“She also said he’s interested in it, but more in whacking the ball. Kate also said that Charlotte is also getting to know the sport, taking lessons at the exclusive Hurlingham Club”.
