The duchess, who's been an accomplished athlete since her primary school days, hasn't lost her sporty side since entering the world of royals. Whether it's commandeering a dragon boat race on Prince Edward Island to bundling up for a skiing holiday in Switzerland, Kate's love of sports is apparent.
"The Duchess of Cambridge is a keen sportswoman and believes that sport has the power to engage, educate and inspire and change lives for the better," writes Buckingham Palace in one of the mom-of-three's biographies. "The Duchess of Cambridge's passion for sport stems from Her Royal Highness's own experience and enjoyment of playing sport from a young age, in particular tennis, hockey and sailing."
Amongst her many wellness endeavors, Kate is a patron of the 1851 Trust, to bring sailing and maritime to the younger generation, and SportsAid, to help support athletic competitions.
And although she isn't *technically* allowed to participate in marathons, we have yet to hear of a rule that forbids her from taking up archery (check), from playing volleyball in wedges (check) and from kicking Prince William's butt in yacht racing (and check).
