Princess Kate - An Athlete Under the Tiara

6 years ago

With all the "Royal Wedding" talk going on, some people have been critical about the perception of royalty and where women stand in it. Princess Kate is looking to change that.

The first princess with a degree, Kate was a commoner raised by an upper middle class family. She has a solid work ethic, which she gained from her partents, and yes, she did compete in sports.

When she was younger, Kate played many sports and by all reports was a decent athlete. She was an all-star on the rounders team, was a competitive swimmer, and a goalie on her netball team. Going into the upper grades, she competed in basketball and cricket.
