Britain’s Duchess of Cambridge put her morning sickness behind her at the SportAid event.
The 32-year-old royal has struggled with acute morning sickness during her second pregnancy, however, Catherine appeared to be on the mend as she took part at the SportAid event in London yesterday (12.11.14).
When the Duchess – whose due date is thought to be in April – appeared at last year’s event she took part in a vigorous game of volleyball, however, this time she decided to put her mental skills to the test.
Seeing the funny side, Her Royal Highness joked: “Finally, something I can do while I’m pregnant.”
Taking part in four different challenges that test one’s mental agility, the SportAid patron was told that the Formula 1 racing driver Jenson Button had passed the same tests just a few weeks earlier.
The Daily Express newspaper reported the Duchess as saying: “It makes you wonder whether he is a good driver because he is so sharp mentally or whether the years of driving have honed it.
“It’s remarkable that people haven’t really thought before of working the mind and body as one.
“This could be used in so many environments, even in an office.
“It is absolutely fascinating.”
Catherine – who is already mother to her 16-month-old son Prince George – also spent time with the young athletes who are favourites for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.
Speaking of the SportAid patron, one future golf champion Emma Allen said: “It’s wonderful to have a figurehead like [Catherine] for me, especially as a girl.”
