Kate Middleton, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge


Kate Middleton really is back on the royal grind!

The 31-year-old duchess is a patron of SportsAid, a charity that helps British athletes to reach their potential, and on Oct. 18, she'll be attending the organization's athlete workshop at the Copper Box in London's Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

Per Kensington Palace, this will be Kate's first official visit with SportsAid athletes and their parents since she became a patron of the organization in April. During the athlete workshop, the new mom will watch young athletes playing a variety of sports, including wheelchair basketball, football (soccer) adapted for those with Cerebral palsy, volleyball, fencing and badminton.

Kate will join the athletes and their parents for educational workshops on nutrition as well as media and social media training. She'll also listen as the young athletes get some general guidance from Olympians and Paralympians Katherine Grainger, Ade Adepitan and Karen Pickering.

Since SportsAid was founded in 1976, it has helped aspiring athletes by covering essential costs like training, travel, equipment and competition fees. According to the organization's website, two-thirds of the British team at the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games were helped by SportsAid at some point in their careers.

And, as you surely recall from this past summer, Kate and hubby Prince William are big supporters of Team G.B.!
