Duchess Kate: Duchess Kate & Field Hockey

March 16, 2012 by staff 

Duchess Kate: Duchess Kate & Field Hockey, She shoots, she scores! The former Kate Middleton smashed home a goal Thursday as she played a bit of field hockey while visiting the British Olympic women’s team at Olympic Park. The Duchess of Cambridge, who captained the hockey team at her high school, Marlborough College, took the field in a morale-boosting mission ahead of the July 27-Aug. 12 London games.

Admitting it’s been a while since she had taken a stick in hand, she tried to suggest that no one should watch. That notion was ignored.

“I was really looking forward to coming here, but now I am here and have discovered I have to play, I am not feeling so confident,” she said.

The glamorous Kate arrived at Olympic Park in heels but quickly donned a gray “Team GB” (Great Britain) sweatshirt over coral-colored jeans. She expressed some concern that her skinny jeans would clash with the bright blue pitch, but gamely grabbed a stick and took a few shots.

“This is going to be so embarrassing,” she said. “My brain thinks I can do all these wonderful things but my body just doesn’t play ball.”

Clearly she was sandbagging the crowd of journalists. Although no one was at the net to block a goal, Kate took a big swing and let the ball fly.
