Kate Middleton Swats at Pregnancy Rumor With a Field Hockey Stick


If Kate Middleton's goal (pun intended) was to quash pregnancy rumors, a quick round of field hockey at her alma mater should do the trick.

The Duchess of Cambridge, still wearing her Alexander McQueen coat and high-heeled boots, took to the turf for a few strokes today to help officially open the new playing field at St. Andrew's School inPangbourne, England, the preparatory school she attended from 1986 to 1995.

It wasn't exactly a rugby scrum, but the future mother of Prince William's children probably would be taking it a bit easier if she were carrying an heir to the British throne in her womb.

Then again, moms-to-be are certainly entitled to their exercise!

"It was while I was here at school that I realized my love of sport,"Middleton told those assembled at St. Andrew's. "Sport has been a huge part of my life, and I feel incredibly grateful for the opportunities I had to get outside and play in such wonderful open spaces—though, sadly, there was nothing quite as glamorous as this in my time!"

Made all the more glamorous by the royal alumna's appearance today.
