Volleyball anyone?

Kate is the sporty type and seems to enjoy all these games, so good luck to her. (I wouldn't play volleyball if you paid me, nor any other team game).

bit daft to forget the trainers, sack the lady-in-waiting...

although she dieted to the point of emaciation to fit into that awful wedding dress, it does appear that she is naturally skinny, so it makes sense she has snapped back into shape. And of course has time and money to do all the exercise.

I 'snapped back' after my first with no real effort, can't say the same happened second time around! <looks sadly at muffin top>

Kate has apparently been doing yoga and stuff so good on her for that, but I was rather miffed to see her described today as displaying 'a boundless energy one rarely finds in a harassed new mother'. In what way is she harassed? Is she doing all her own cooking, cleaning, laundry, shopping etc etc while lugging the baby around with her every minute? I doubt it. I'm willing to bet she even gets to finish the odd cup of tea before it is stone cold wink.

Still, she does look good, and I'd probably break my ankle if I tried to jump around in those shoes blush.

I think she looks.amazing, and if I.knew the worlds Paps would be photographing me at any opportunity, id make damn sure I looked my best every time I left the house.

Even with her post baby bump.leaving the hospital she looked beautiful. I think she is blessed with good genes and has a wealth of support due to the family she has married into.

Some people do just 'snap' back, that's a fact of life. There are degrees of everything, surely people know this.

I am horribly jealous!

Regarding the sisterhood - I mean instead of showing off what most women find difficult to achieve having a 3 month old she could have been kinder and more discreet about her success in snapping back. She's not there to enjoy a game of volleyball. She's at work and she knew her top was riding up but continued to play. She is a public figure, at the top of our social hierarchy and we are conditioned to respect her. Young girls and women look up to her and want to emulate her and are receiving the message that looking this toned this quickly is normal.

I don't think she planned to have her t-shirt ride up like that. She is probably mortified. (But if I looked like that then I certainly would be showing off!)

You sound horribly jealous

Why does it have to be anything? And why such extremes - letting down the sisterhood, what does that even mean?

Are you fishing for quotes?

Or, perhaps she's just enjoying a game of volleyball and not trying to make a wider statement.

Kate Middleton playing volleyball in high heals and (somewhat deliberately) allowing her top to ride up for the world to see her impossibly slim, toned post-baby tummy. Letting down the sisterhood, or someone to admire and respect?
