Wearing a trendy all-green outfit, Kate made sure to get hands on during today’s visit as she joined boxing training.

Learning about the differences for para-athletes, the 38-year-old even took to the track herself – sprinting off the starting blocks.

And Kate burst out laughing as she crossed the finish line with some of the youngsters including coach Coral Nourrice, Jessica Ennis-Hill, Danny Sidbury and Emmanuel Oyinbo-Coker.

The duchess, the patron of SportsAid, seemed comfortable in the sports centre, having previously competing in rowing, swimming and tennis.

And she grinned as she toured the London Stadium at the Olympic Park in Stratford this morning.

The mum-of-three this year has been focusing on the importance of early childhood experiences, even launching a survey to focus on the impact of the early years.

Her Royal Highness then met with parents and guardians of SportsAid athletes, past and present, to hear about their experiences, the challenges that they face, and about the impact of the support they receive from the charity.

She will also have an opportunity to listen to a panel discussion involving athletes, parents and guardians.

It’s been a busy week for the duchess, who last night headed to a play in London about mental health.

She and husband Prince William chatted with guests outside the Noel Coward Theatre at a special charity performance of the Tony award-winning hit musical Dear Evan Hansen.

Prince William was also out and about today, donning a high-vis jacket for a visit to the Tarmac National Kills and Safety Park in Nottinghamshire.

Meanwhile, brother-in-law Prince Harry appeared in Scotland today as he launched an eco-tourism scoring system.

The Duke of Sussex returned to Britain last night for the first time since securing Megxit that will mean he and Meghan Markle won’t be able to use the word Royal for their future trademarks.

As part of the Megxit deal, Harry must ditch his honorary military positions for at least 12 months.

They have been allowed to keep their HRH titles but have been forced to accept that they will not use them publicly as they tout for business around the globe.

The Sussexes have already agreed to repay the £2.4 million ($A4.7 million) of taxpayers’ money used to refurbish their Frogmore Cottage home in Windsor and are expected to pay a commercial rent for it of about £30,000 ($A59,000) a month.
