William presents Geva Mentor with her award
Princess Charlotte could take after her mother the Duchess of Cambridge, who excelled at sport, while she was at school. While Kate was a pupil at St Andrew’s School in Pangbourne, she was on the hockey, swimming and netball teams – where she played goal defence.
The four-year-old is said to have already inherited her mother’s sporting prowess and is said to be a natural at tennis. A source confirmed to HELLO! earlier this year that Charlotte and her big brother George have regular tennis lessons at Hurlingham Club in Fulham, south-west London.

Charlotte started at Thomas’s school in Battersea in September, where physical education is an important part of the curriculum. In Reception, children develop their co-ordination, control and movement through specialist-taught gym, games and ballet. As pupils move up through the school, according to the website, netball is played during the first term of the academic year and there are opportunities for girls to enjoy fixtures against other schools as well as interhouse tournaments.
