Britain’s Duchess of Cambridge plays tennis with Judy Murray
Britain’s Duchess of Cambridge played tennis with Judy Murray.
The 34-year-old royal partnered with the sports coach for the Tennis on the Road project as they visited a number of Edinburgh schools with the workshop.
Judy said: “[The Duchess is] fantastic for tennis and women’s sport. She said she’d love to come back and do some more. From a parent’s perspective, I think she was interested in what she could pass on.
“She asked me, ‘At what age can a child hold a racquet?’ I told her with children of George’s [her son’s] age you can start with a balloon and just the hand. I don’t know if he has played yet, but she was certainly asking. If you start simple and a child can do it, then a child enjoys it and everything grows from there.”
Meanwhile, the Duchess and her husband Prince William are big fans of sport and were recently seen rock climbing in North Wales.
Whilst they were on the wall, she said: “I’m quite enjoying this, actually. For once I’m in control.”
And when he scaled the wall, she joked with the second in line to the throne: “William – how much do you love me?”
