Today, The Duchess of Cambridge Catherine made her first appearance since the announcement of the 3rd Cambridge baby. The outing signals the fast recovery Kate is making from the severe morning sickness she was suffering since September.
The Duchess spent the morning with children at the Lawn Tennis Association. She took the patronage of the Association from Her Majesty the Queen in December last year who held the role for 64 years.
Catherine was briefed about the latest activities of the association as well as about the LTA’s mission to get more people playing tennis on arrival at the National Tennis Centre in London.
On Court 1 The Duchess joined children, an on-court tennis practice, who are benefiting from the Tennis for Kids campaign.
Throughout 2017, Tennis for Kids will give 22,500 children the chance to play & enjoy tennis through free quality coaching and a free racket.
The Duchess was joined by the current number one in tennis ranking Johanna Konta.
During her stay, The Duchess met Paralympic medallist, Wimbledon and US Open Wheelchair Doubles Champion Alfie Hewett.
Alfie gives Catherine a demonstration of his Wheelchair Tennis skills, which he started learning after attending a Tennis Foundation Camp in 2005.
Next Catherine met some of the UK’s top junior tennis talents and their support teams to learn what it takes to become a tennis champion.
