Kate Middleton has a secret hobby – but she’s ‘really rubbish’ at it


SHE’S always felt like a wonderfully relatable royal – and Kate Middleton continues to live up that reputation.

The Duchess of Cambridge has revealed that she has a secret hobby, before going on to admit that she’s “really rubbish” at it.

Kate Middleton has tried her hand at knitting

The mum-of-three has shared that she has been trying to get the hang of knitting, including attempting to create clothes.

It has been reported by Hello! that she made the revelation to a group of royal fans during a visit to Glasgow.

The duchess, 39, is understood to have said: “I’ve been trying to knit and I’m really bad. I should be asking for tips!”

Then, during a trip to Bradford last when she paid a trip to Older Yet Wiser – an organisation that supports grandparents – she revealed that she first tried knitting in 2013 while pregnant.

Speaking to a group of grandmothers who were crocheting, Kate explained: “I tried knitting when I first had George.

“I tried to knit him a very special jumper, but I got halfway down and it splattered. It’s such an amazing skill.”

It is more well-known, however, that the duchess has a passion for gardening.

She previously designed a garden for the RHS Chelsea Flower Show back in 2019.

Additionally, on a visit to Wales earlier this year, her husband Prince William said: “My wife does all the gardening.

“I really like it but I have no idea what I’m doing.”

The busy mum is also a big fan of sport, with tennis her particular passion.
