Getting the kids involved in sport is a pretty common thing for parents, and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are no different.
Prince William and Duchess Catherine attended the Wimbledon Men's Finals (looking as loved-up as ever) to watch tennis superstars Novak Djokovic and Kevin Anderson battle it out. But after meeting with Djokovic following his big win, the second-in-line to the throne made it clear he was trying to get his two eldest children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, involved in tennis.
When the tennis champ asked the couple, "How are your children?" Catherine replied, "Yeah, very well," and her husband added "Very well thanks, very well. Trying to get a tennis racket in their hand – and a football!"
The Cambridge clan are a famously sporty family, so we have no doubt George, Charlotte and Louis will follow in their parents' footsteps. And seeing as Prince William is the president of the Football Association (FA) and Duchess Catherine took over from the Queen and is now patron of the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club, they have some good connections.
The Duchess of Cambridge has previously revealed that her two eldest children are already having lessons, though she told retired player Greg Rusedski at last year's Wimbledon, "[George has] got a racket and he enjoys playing tennis." However, seeing as he's still pretty young, he just "wants to whack a ball."
Princess Charlotte has also been having tennis lessons at London's exclusive Hurlingham Club and according to a source for The Sun, the little princess "is a natural."
We may be seeing these two on Centre Court in a few years' time!
