Today, 39-year-old Kate Middleton took part in an event organized by the Lawn Tennis Association youth program, which was held at the National Tennis Center in London. The Duchess of Cambridge met with British tennis players-champions of the US Open tournament Joe Salisbury, Emma Radukanu, Alfie Hewett and Gordon Reid.
In public, Kate appeared in sportswear for tennis. She was wearing a short Poivre Blanc skirt and an Olympic jacket of the same brand and On Running sneakers.
A big fan of tennis, Kate not only personally congratulated the athletes and asked them about their impressions of the tournament in New York, but also picked up a racket herself and went out on the court, playing together with 18-year-old Emma Radukanu.
Kate Middleton has long been known for her love of tennis — she took lessons at the prestigious Hurlingham Club in Fulham and boasts excellent skills in this sport. Prince William says that his wife is so good at tennis that he has no chance of beating her.
Her skill was also appreciated by Emma, who said that she really liked playing with the Duchess of Cambridge.
Her forehand was incredible. I was very impressed. It was a lot of fun playing tennis with the Duchess,
— she admitted.
The Duchess also met with teenagers who play tennis at an elementary level as part of the LTA youth program, and learned more about the work that the organization is doing to encourage youth participation in sports across the country.
