Duchess Kate And Prince William Break A Sweat Playing Sports In India

They played cricket and soccer, of course.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William are quite the sporting couple. Prince William is an avid soccer fan, supporting lowly Aston Villa, and as seen above, Duchess Kate's cricket swing is strong — even in wedges. 

On Sunday, the couple visited a park in Mumbai, India, as part of their royal tour of the country. Indian cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar was on hand to bowl a few deliveries to Duchess Kate and Prince William. 

Playing sports in wedges ain't easy.

Cricket and soccer (sorry, football) are two sports that were actually conceived in England, so naturally, a proper kickabout was arranged. The royal couple got their respective wedges and suede shoes a bit dirty, who cares? They're royals, and sports are more important than looking pristine at every opportunity.

They did some drills in the park before heading to a slum area in Mumbai for some street soccer.
