Kate, who sat in the royal box with husband Prince William, was handed a touching gift from tennis legend Stan Smith. The former world champion handed it to the Duchess of Cambridge as she took her seat at Wimbledon's centre court. The present was a pair of trainers named after the sporting legend, tiny Adidas Stan Smiths.
But that wasn’t the only surprise for the toddler, who turned one on April 23, as one of the shoes was even signed by Stan Smith himself in gold ink.
Kate was later given a blue Adidas box, which presumable contained the other matching trainer.
The young royal could be set to follow in his older brother’s footsteps, as it was revealed last week Prince George, five, played tennis with Roger Federer.
After helping the future King brush up on his serve, the Wimbledon runner-up described George as a “cute boy” who had “good” technique.
