A royal pain.
Kate Middleton visited High Down Prison sporting a mysterious hand injury on Tuesday morning.
Kensington Palace revealed that the injury, which resulted in a bandage wrapped around two fingers, came from her playing on the trampoline with her children. A spokesperson added that it’s a “small injury” and “nothing serious.”
The Princess of Wales, 41, who is mom to Prince George, 10, Princess Charlotte, 8, and Prince Louis, 5, was visiting the prison as part of her role as patron of the Forward Trust, to see how inmates and their families are being supported through addiction, ahead of Addiction Awareness Week.
She wore a navy suit for the visit, and sported beachy waves and new curtain bangs.
High Down is a men’s prison with around 1,100 prisoners, and the Forward Trust performs a variety of services there, including workshops for addicts and their loved ones and abstinence based programs.
This is one of Middleton’s first royal engagements since summer break ended and her children resumed school.
Earlier this month, she wore Queen Elizabeth’s pearl earrings on the first anniversary of the monarch’s death as she attended a memorial service.
“I’m not going to say you’re uber competitive, but…” Tindall, who is married to Princess Anne’s daughter, Zara, 42, said on the podcast. “I’ve seen her play beer pong!”
She also confessed that she and Prince William, 41, are too competitive to play sports with each other.
“I don’t think we’ve managed to finish a game of tennis, the two of us,” Middleton said. “It becomes a mental challenge between the two of us.”
Kate Middleton and Prince William’s early days of dating will soon be dramatized on Netflix’s “The Crown,” (played by Ed McVey, 23, as Prince William and Meg Bellamy, 19,) which returns for its final season at an unannounced date in the fall.
