Princess Catherine always exudes grace and confidence whenever we see her in public.
But after “falling in love” with her husband, the wife of Prince William has now admitted she had to “learn” how to be a royal.
On Tuesday, Catherine made a solo appearance in Bath to attend a Dame Kelly Holmes Trust event.
After hearing about their experiences with home and school life, the Princess opened the floor to questions about herself when she sat down for a private conversation with a group of schoolgirls supported by the charity at St Katherine’s School in Bristol.
Catherine responded that she had not anticipated becoming a “royal” when asked if she wanted to be one by a student, but she had “fell in love” with William.
When asked about being a royal, Catherine acknowledged that she “had to learn” about it.
Dame Kelly later revealed more information about the conversation, claiming that she had asked the royal if she noticed different “traits” in each of Catherine’s three children and received the response “Oh yes, definitely.”
The Princess’s visit during Mental Health Awareness Week, according to the Olympic champion, “humanized everything to say not everyone’s perfect.” No matter what you possess or how others perceive you to be, you will always have insecurities as a person.
When she first arrived, Catherine, who is known for her competitive nature, joined some of the eight students aged 11 to 14 being supported by the trust in an outdoor game to help everyone unwind, while Kelly joined the other students on an opposing team.
Each team member ran forward and threw a beanbag onto a ground grid as the sun shone brightly.
Although Catherine’s team gave it their all, Dame Kelly’s team won twice. After their first victory, the track star held her arms high and admitted she was “slightly competitive,” to which the Princess jokingly retorted, “You would never have guessed!”
Princess Catherine is renowned for being athletic and competitive! She and her husband frequently exhibit their competitive natures during public appearances, such as their 2011 dragon boat race and their 2017 competition while practicing for the London Marathon.
But there is one area where Prince William will never be successful.
In a previous interview with Sebastian Shakespeare of the Daily Mail, former world number one Rod Laver said, “I’d met William and Catherine a few times, and in the Royal Box you get a chance to chat with them a little bit. They compete in a game of tennis. William claimed he was powerless to defeat her.
