Kate Middleton Gets Her Field Hockey On

by at . Comments

With Princes Harry (Brazil) and Prince William (the Falklands) otherwise occupied, it fell to Kate Middleton to help ramp up the excitement as the ambassador of the 2012 London Olympics during a private visit to the city's Olympic Park.

Did she ever. She worked out with Team Great Britain's field hockey squad!

Having played the sport herself (and even serving as her school's captain), the ever-game Duchess wasted no time joining in with the ladies. So how'd she do?

As with everything else, Kate Middleton proved herself to be a total natural.

"I was really looking forward to coming here, but now I am here and have discovered I have to play," she told the men's and women's teams beforehand.

"I am not feeling confident. The last time I played was 2005, maybe. It feels like I haven't held a stick for 10 years. This is going to be so embarrassing."

"My brain thinks I can do these things, but my body doesn't play ball. Oh, please don't tell me I have to do it in front of all these people!" she joked.

Kate missed the first three of her goal attempts, but ultimately scored a goal - to rapturous applause from all players and observers, of course.

Middleton swapped her blazer and heels for a gray Team GB sweatshirt, coral jeans and Adidas sneakers. She looks great in both ensembles, no?

The REAL gossip about Kate is that she, the daughter of an airline stewardess who made a ton of money filling up the landfill with party favors made in china, married James Goldsmiths grandson. Now this is FACT. Go to Charlie Rose and look up the video of Sir James Goldsmith. That is who Dianas mother had an affair with 9 months before Diana was born. Diana looks EXACTLY like James Goldsmith. Really. And William looks exactly like Zac Goldsmith who is his cousin. So we are meant to bow down before an ordinary thin lipped girl, daughter of a party favor saleswoman and James Goldsmiths illegitimate daughters son. A JOKE. glad Im american. All the Aristocrats in England know this to be true. Is the honest truth. Go look it up if you dont believe me. You will be amazed. Funny though that the Church of England will be run by a couple who are both 1/4 Jewish. Not that I have a problem with that either. Its just that if this is supposed to be about blood lines then what the hell is going oN!

WV Peach is right, "BREAK". The woman is too thin. She's trying too hard to be the royal fashionista extraordinaire. This princess has gotten caught up in the whole emaciated "catwalk" thing! Sad.

@Give Me... Totally not jealous; I said she just appears too thin. You, on the other hand, sound dumb.

No, she does not look good; she's too thin and looks painfully frail. I'd say The Duchess is a fun girl though and seems very grounded. Just a bit more to eat Kate.
