Kate Middleton Wears Wedges Playing Volleyball At Olympic Park (PHOTOS)

When baby's away, the Duchess will play!

Kate Middleton made her first solo engagement without her first-born son, Prince George, on Friday to attend an event at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in London.

The 31-year-old, who is a patron of the charity SportsAid, used her athletic prowess when she joined in a game of volleyball wearing (of all things) wedges!

That's right, the Duchess of Cambridge spiked the ball sporting a casual ensemble featuring a striped tee, dark jeans and a fitted Ralph Lauren blazer. Who knew that volleyball could be so chic?

Not even all that jumping and lunging could keep Prince William's beautiful wife from looking put-together; not a hair from her perfect blow-out was out of place and her post-baby bod looked ready to kick butt after her shirt flew up to reveal her toned tummy.

Kate has been looking in fine form since giving birth to the future King of England back in July; not only did the Duchess look totally gorgeous at the Tusk Trust Gala in September (that sequined Jenny Packham dress was to die for) but she also made casual dressing look glamorous when she made her first post-baby appearance in Anglesey wearing a cute green blazer over a Zara top.

So when will we see baby George? The third-in-line to the throne will have his big moment on Oct. 23, when he has his christening at St. James' Palace Chapel. We can't wait to see what the baby wears!
