Kate Middleton Named Honourary Wimbledon, All England Tennis Club Member


Kate Middleton's got a new job, and we're pretty sure you'll never guess what it is.

According to Marie Claire, The Duchess Of Cambridge has been named an honourary member of the All England Tennis Club — aka: the group of racket-swinging fanatics that put on Wimbledon each year.

How does that equate to "work" for the soon-to-be Royal mom?

EntertainmentWise says the title means Kate could take over as club president when the Duke of Kent retires.

Of the new gig, a palace rep says: "The Duchess was pleased to accept the kind offer, especially given her interest in tennis."

While Kate is unlikely to attend Wimbledon this year — she's taking some time out of the public eye — she and her sister Pippa have frequently been spotted at matches over the years.

The membership, says InStyle, brings Kate's royal portoflios to three — she also represents the National Portrait Gallery and a children's hospital.
