Kate slammed Prince William’s sporting commitment, saying, “I’ll believe it when I see it.”
The possibility of seeing her husband, Prince William, run a marathon has been viciously discounted by Kate, Duchess of Cambridge.
According to Sean Fletcher of Good Morning Britain, Kate had a humorous reaction when her husband Prince William announced his plan to run a marathon at an engagement. In early 2017, Mr Fletcher attended an event held by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry at the Institute of Contemporary Arts in London as part of their Heads Together program.
Mr Fletcher, who went on to run the London Marathon a few months later in support of his son’s diagnosis of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, reflected on his chats with the Cambridges during the event.
“I spoke with Prince William, and he vowed to run a marathon in Kenya at some point,” he stated.
After Mr Fletcher informed Kate of the Duke’s statement, Kate jokingly shrugged it off.
“I’ll believe it when I see it,” the Duchess joked, he recalled.
On a more serious note, Mr Fletcher recalled the Duke of Cambridge’s “understanding” when he learned about his son’s mental health.
He stated, ” “This is all new to me, and because of my son’s situation, I’m learning at a breakneck pace.
“William’s patience and understanding, as well as his sympathy and empathy for me, were remarkable. He bombarded me with questions.
“I’d never met him before, but he seemed like such a kind guy. As if two fathers were conversing.” In 2016, Prince Harry, William, and Kate founded Heads Together to raise awareness about mental health concerns and reduce the stigma associated with them.
Despite Kate’s stern remark, it is anticipated that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will not be permitted to run a marathon due to security concerns.
Journalist Bryony Gordon remembers asking Kate in 2017 if she planned to run the London Marathon, which featured Heads Together as the Charity of the Year that year.
“Oh no, security and all that,” Kate responded.
“If I can complete the marathon, you can do it,” Bryony is claimed to have teased.
While senior royals running a marathon would raise security issues, Pippa Middleton, Kate’s sister, was free to compete in her first marathon in Kenya in 2015.
Kate, like Pippa, is a sports fanatic who has recently showed her enthusiasm for physical activity.
She joined during a trip to the Lake District earlier this month. “Brinkwire News Summary.”
