Duchess Kate At London Stadium

The Duchess of Cambridge showed off her athletic skills, as she visited the London Stadium at the Olympic Park in Stratford on Wednesday. She joined a SportsAid event dedicated to celebrating the role that parents and guardians play in their child's sporting success.


Kate, dressed for the engagement in green culottes, a matching top and trainers, met young athletes taking part in track and field activities. She also spoke with parents and guardians of SportsAid athletes, past and present to hear about their experiences, the challenges they face and about the impact of the support they receive from the charity.


The Duchess, who is renowned for her love of sport became the patron of SportsAid in 2013 – a year after her role as an ambassador for the London 2012 Olympics.

What a lovely young woman!  She, fully, engages in every appearance!  She makes it look seamless and easy.  Gracious, warm, inviting, a sterling effort put forth, she represents the Queen and her country in the best possible way.  A shining example!

That's an odd outfit.  Even for athletics.

Fits of laughter: Competitive Kate and Ennis-Hill kept the spirit of the event friendly and didn't try to outpace each other

 

 

 

Kate Middleton looked delighted to be on the track

 

 

 

Fancy giving this a try? The Duchess of Cambridge looked less sure as she was shown a pole vault at the indoor track
