Kate Middleton has a passion for sports
The Duchess of Cambridge is a born sportswoman. Remember how she was playing volleyball in Olympic Park in five-inch heels just three months after Prince George was born? Or how she took to the pitch with the recently crowned US Open champion Emma Radukanu or donned a white cricket jersey in Pakistan? She is characterized by spontaneity and boundless enthusiasm in everything she does – no surprise for a woman who captained her school’s hockey team, became a star tennis player and even a yacht crew member As the world circled.

To mark the occasion, she attends a rugby training session at Twickenham Stadium and meets with England players, coaches and referees. We review their best sporting moments.
