On her recent royal tour to Bhutan and India with Prince William, Middleton trekked to the Tiger's Nest Monastery in Thimphu, Bhutan. Rumor has it she's wearing boots she's had since college—specifically, Penelope Chilvers tassel detail boots. When paired with khaki Zara jeans, her "rustic" look is totally on point. (Inspired?

Just a few days prior, Middleton stepped out in India to try her hand in a cricket match (not her first, though) at the Oval Maiden. Although she's wearing wedges—far bolder than we'd ever be when playing sports—it looks like she's ready to knock one out of the park.

Channeling her inner Katniss, Middleton is nothing but the smiling archer at her first stop in Bhutan. Although we're not sure Katniss would be caught dead in nude pumps as elegant as the Duchess's.

Although this photo was part of a set for the royal couple's 2015 holiday cards, we can just envision the Duchess effortlessly gliding down a black diamond in this sleek ski get-up—can't you? Regardless, we're pretty confident a good snowball fight qualifies as major calorie burn. (See more Celebs Who Love to Hit the Slopes.)

While visiting Edinburgh, Scotland, the Duchess took part in a tennis clinic with British tennis champ Andy Murray's mom at a local high school. We love the throwback feel to this athleisure look, complete with fresh-for-spring track pants and baby blue high-top kicks.

Although not as physically demanding, Middleton shows off her fine-tune motor skills by owning the tennis table at a charity event this past winter. In a suit, no less.

OK, she didn't really get handsy with the basketball while visiting Brooklyn's Barclays Center, but the Duchess and Prince William were given their own jerseys courtesy of one LeBron James—and one for their son, Prince George too. So cute. (Don't play? Here, eight reasons why you should—from the pros.)

8. That Time Kate Played "Three Tins"

We'd never heard of Three Tins until the Duchess was snapped playing the South African sport last year. Her form is impressive even if we aren't too sure of the rules—just look at her throw while weawring those cork navy heels.

We told you she's familiar with the sport—and she's actually one-upped herself by playing in black leather pumps instead of wedges. She's got a good stance, right?

10. That Time Kate Played Volleyball

Talk about hops! Middleton bumped, set, and spiked her way to volleyball success in skinny jeans, a striped top, and navy cork wedges at an athlete workshop back in 2013. Although her style may have evolved, her sportiness seems to have stuck.
