The Duchess of Cambridge certainly looked the part on Wednesday during her second engagement of the day. Kate swapped her heels for trainers as she stepped out for her sporty afternoon engagement in South-West London to see the work of the Wimbledon Junior Tennis Initiative at Bond Primary School in Mitcham. The 36-year-old – who is patron of the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club - wrapped up warm in a white track jacket from Clarice, priced at £129. The versatile design - described online as a piece that "looks and feels amazing court or trackside" - was teamed with a pair of black leggings with white side stripes and a pair of Nike trainers.

Kate also wore her engagement ring during the tennis visit, which she had previously taken off during her earlier visit at Great Ormond Street Hospital. The mother-of-two had visited the hospital wearing a chic red coat from Boden, priced at £220, which she teamed with nude tights, a simple black clutch bag and Annoushka Baroque Pearl Drops earrings - which she kept on during the tennis trip.
A keen tennis player herself, Kate got stuck in during a tennis training session with a group of school children. The Duchess showcased her talents as she caught the tennis balls that were being thrown her way. Before leaving, Kate was gifted with some tennis rackets for her two children, Prince George, four, and Princess Charlotte, two. Charlotte in particular will no doubt be thrilled to receive the present, having recently started tennis lessons herself at London's exclusive Hurlingham Club.

The Duchess of Cambridge recently revealed that George is also learning how to play, but at his age, admitted he just "wants to whack a ball". Kate opened up about her son during a visit to the Lawn Tennis Association in October, where she took part in drills with children and spoke to tennis coaches and players including Johanna Konta, Britain's No.1 tennis player. Kate asked LTA coach Sam Richardson for advice. He later revealed: "She says with George just being four he wants to whack a ball, so she was asking what sort of stuff should she be doing. They will struggle at that age to hit a ball. She said he's interested in it, but more in whacking the ball."
