26 times the royals made us laugh while playing sports – see hilarious photos

The royal family is known for many things (impeccable style and impressive homes, for starters), but they’re also heralded for their sporting prowess.

From Kate Middleton’s excellent tennis skills to the Queen’s passion for horse riding, they have a few sporting tricks up their sleeve – and they’re always willing to try their hand at something new.
