Keeping up appearances and following royal protocol appear to be second nature to the Princess, who has slid into her role as a member of the British Royal Family with great ease. However, one of the few times she's been spotted being very unruly, and dare we say unroyal, is during sporting events.

Super sporty Kate not only follows sports but puts her money where her mouth is too and even gets involved. She's thrown around a rugby ball, hit the running track, taken to the water in a rowing boat, and played tennis like an utter pro.

The Princess of Wales is such a confident sportsperson that she doesn't even mind going up against the world's greatest athletes - even if she's likely to lose!

A prime example of this is when Kate Middleton took to the court with Emma Raducanu - which would be any tennis obsessive's dream. The game came in the weeks after the late Queen and Kate Middleton congratulated Emma Raducanu, who at the time was the first British woman in 44 years to win a Grand Slam title.

Although the hardworking royal didn't win the game, she proved that she's a dab hand at the game and isn't afraid to fail in public. Tennis is regarded as one of her favorite sports and like many other royals - attending Wimbledon is an annual highlight.

Since meeting her husband Prince William Wimbledon has proven to be an important annual pilgrimage for the Princess, who's often seen breaking her usual composure as she takes in the event. Despite her animated displays during these sporting events, it's rare that we see Kate Middleton's glossy hair and makeup look anything less than utterly perfect.
