The Duchess of Cambridge has been hailed by fans as the “champion of champions” after she became patron of an organisation that supports the Olympians and Paralympians of tomorrow.

Kate was an official ambassador for Britain’s London 2012 teams and has now become the figurehead of SportsAid, which gives young athletes a financial boost and other practical help at the start of their careers.

The Duchess has also accepted patronage of London’s Natural History Museum and Place2Be, a mental health charity for schoolchildren.
