Kate Middleton May Be Family Tennis Champ as Prince William Reportedly Can't Beat Her

Kate Middleton is so good at tennis, and so fiercely competitive, that her husband, Prince William, is wondering how he is ever going to defeat to her. 

Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, is renowned for tennis prowess after honing her skills at the Hurlingham Club in London, and that has given her an unfair advantage, especially against her husband, Prince William. 

Former world No.1, Rod Laver of Australia is a witness of Kate Middleton's prowess on the tennis court and said that she is fiercely competitive when she competes against her husband.

Rod Laver has frequently shared the Royal Box at Wimbledon with Kate Middleton, and said that he has met with her and her husband a few times, and also had the opportunity to chat with them. 

He revealed that the Royal Couple plays tennis against each other and that Prince William told him that he couldn't beat Kate at the game. An example of Kate's competitiveness was seen when she rowed against him during their tour of Poland and Germany, telling her crew:

"No pressure, but I do want to beat my husband."

That boat race ended in defeat for the Duchess, and thankfully for Prince William, it wasn't a game of tennis, where he would surely have lost to his wife.

Kate may not be the only person that Prince William has to worry about when it comes to the game of tennis, as his son, Prince George, is already receiving private lessons from tennis great, Roger Federer. 

A royal expert, Katie Nicholl, believes that the added responsibilities are taking their toll on William and Kate and may lead them to get stressed out.

Today The Duchess of Cambridge visited HMP Send to talk to some of the women she met during a visit to the prison in 2015 — who have since been successfully rehabilitated, released and are rebuilding their families, in addition to women currently at the prison. The Duchess heard about the work that the Forward Trust do at the prison in supporting clients to improve their relationships with friends and family, including reconnecting with children. Among those that The Duchess spoke with today was Kirsty, who she first met in 2015. Kirsty spent her childhood in and out of the care system. Following a series of adverse experiences, she turned to substance misuse and began a 10-year cycle of addiction and reoffending: • “While serving my sentence, I woke up one day and realised enough was enough. • I took myself to my drug and alcohol worker and asked for help. I was lucky enough to be sent to HMP Send for a fresh start. • The programme changed my life. In some of my darkest moments since, I have never turned back to drugs.” • What we experience in the earliest years – from in the womb to the age of five – is instrumental in shaping our future lives. The Duchess of Cambridge has spent time meeting with families across the country and hearing about the issues they deal with day-to-day, in addition to speaking with academics, experts, organisations and practitioners. It takes just 5 minutes to have your say in the biggest ever conversation on early childhood – click the link in our bio to answer the #5BigQuestions on the Under 5s.

Kate Middleton's love for tennis is understandable, given that she is a regular at Wimbledon, and also a patron of the All England Lawn Tennis Club. 

William and Kate do share an incredible Royal Love story that dates back to their time as students of St. Andrews University, where Kate caught the eye of the charming Prince. 

Since then, their friendship grew into love and has seen them become one of the world's most famous couples, which in itself is a royal fairytale. 

Being Royals comes with responsibilities aplenty, which the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are not new to, but their responsibilities have increased lately. 

This is after William's brother, Prince Harry, and his wife, Kate Middleton, quit their roles as senior members of the Royal Family, a decision that has seen William and Kate take up more responsibilities to get things back on track.

A royal expert, Katie Nicholl, believes that the added responsibilities are taking their toll on William and Kate and may lead them to get stressed out.

Nicholl also added that William and Kate are still reeling from Harry and Meghan's exit and that it could take a while for them to adjust.
