This is a very quick update post about Kate Middleton‘s next engagement, which KP announced yesterday.
On Halloween, October 31, the Duchess of Cambridge, as Patron, will visit the Lawn Tennis Association (LTA). This will be her first solo engagement, as well as her first publicly scheduled engagement, since her third pregnancy was announced. This will also be Kate’s first visit to the LTA as Patron, since she took over the patronage from HM last December.
Upon arrival, Kate will receive a briefing from key representatives of the LTA on its latest grass roots activities and high-performance objectives. Kate will then watch several on-court sessions, and have the chance to take part in the Tennis for Kids session (which I doubt she will do, since she’s pregnant). Kate will also watch a wheelchair tennis demonstration.
Kate will then have the opportunity to meet some of the UK’s top junior talents as well as members of the training team including coaches, nutritionists and physiotherapists who will share what it takes to be a top junior player. Finally, Kate will meet some of the Coach Core apprentices who will be leading a tennis training session.
I hope this announcement means Kate will start getting back to working engagements now.
