The Duchess of Cambirdge, nee Kate Middleton acted as an inspirational role model for children and teenagers as she attended a solo . SportsAid engagement Kate, who is fan of tennis, sailing and hockey among other sports, met the aspiring athletes on Wednesday.
Showing her support for the youth charity of which she is patron, Kate arrived at the GSK Human Performance Lab in Brentford, West London shortly after lunchtime.
As with all her royal duties, Kate's arrival was highly anticipated. Living up to expectations, the pregnant Duchess, who is expecting her second baby with Prince William, charmed with her warmth and generosity of time.
Flying the flag for British fashion, Kate wore a plum winter coat dress by one of her favourite UK brands Goat. The stylish item featured a buckled belt that drew attention to the Duchess' tiny baby bump.
Keeping warm with a pair of knee-high black boots, Kate left her make-up natural, applying just a hint of blusher to match her wintery look. She had her brunette hair styled into loose curls that fell across her shoulders.
Prince William's wife watched as the group of budding sports fanatics took part in workshops, putting their sporting limits to the test.
The young athletes, who are hoping to take part in the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, showed off their skills in a number of activities including strength and power assessments, cognitive testing and body composition analysis. The exercises were done in an environmental chamber set to match the heat and humidity of Tokyo.
Kate joked that one thing she could do when pregnant was to try a cognitive test
Kate has always been a keen ambassador of sport, and enthusiastically cheered on the nation's men and women during London 2012 in her role as official ambassador for Team GB and Paralympians GB.
