Kate Middleton, Prince William and Prince Harry Kick-Off Tour de France, Take in Wimbledon

Prince William, Kate Middleton, and Prince Harry all enjoyed the kick-off of the Tour de France, and the Duke and Duchess enjoyed themselves at Wimbledon later in the weekend. It was a busy but fun week for the royal couple who enjoy sports and being out among the public.

Kate, William, and Harry all attended the start of the Tour de France in Yorkshire and mingled with the public before Kate cut the ceremonial ribbon, officially starting the race.

Prince George was at home, Kate told a fan, and is "more interested in helicopters and anything with wheels." He would probably have popped the balloon one young fan was holding, so it was probably best he was home with his nanny. Kate also awarded the yellow jersey to the winner of the first stage of the Tour.
