She’s been a fan of the sport for years, so it comes as no surprise that the Duchess of Cambridge has already put a tennis racket in her son’s hands.

At Wimbledon today, Catherine spoke spoke with former British tennis player Greg Rusedski about getting Prince George involved in the game.

“He’s got a racket and he enjoys playing tennis, and obviously she plays with William, so they obviously enjoy the sport very much.”

Catherine reportedly complained that playing against Prince William is “frustrating,” since he’s left-handed (we lefties have an advantage on the court).

And wouldn’t you know?  It looks like George is a lefty, too (King George VI was also a southpaw). 

Her Royal Highness re-wore a color block yellow and white dress by Roksanda Ilincic, a look we first saw in Australia back in April 2014.

After, Serena took a Snapchat video with Their Royal Highnesses, a bold move since the royals don’t like to take photos with fans or sign autographs.

William and Catherine usually turn down requests for such things, but she likely couldn’t get her way out of it.

So, Catherine was a good sport and just smiled for the camera.

The Queen has reportedly decided to hand over the role of President of the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club to Catherine.  Its current president is Her Majesty’s cousin, the Duke of Kent.

The Daily Mail reports that the Queen will not give it to Catherine until 2017.

William took part in the Order of the Thistle service in Scotland today, of which he became a Knight in 2012.

Tomorrow, William and Catherine will visit the Royal International Air Tattoo at RAF Fairford in Gloucestershire.  George will likely use his tennis racket to ruin the flower beds.
