Kate Middleton received tennis tips from Judy Murray for son Prince George


Judy Murray talked with People magazine about what advice she gave Prince George and Princess Charlotte’s mother regarding tennis for children.

“She was talking about at what age can a child hold a racket,” Murray told the magazine. “It becomes about strength.”

“I was saying to her, with children of George’s age, you start with a balloon and the hand,” she said.

On February 24, the Duchess, née Kate Middleton, 34, carried out several royal engagements in Scotland in order to raise awareness about children’s mental health.

Prince William’s wife first stopped by St Catherine’s Primary School in Edinburgh to talk about the work carried out by the charity Place2Be in schools and then visited Wester Hailes Education Centre, at The Art Room, another charity for which she is a Royal Patron. She later joined Scottish professional tennis player Andy Murray’s mother in a tennis workshop.

Murray runs the Tennis on the Road project whose purpose is to encourage adults and children to practice tennis.
