The Duke and Duchess share another hobby, though – and it might not be what you expect from a royal couple! The parents of two both love boxing – with Harry speaking about his love of the sport on Bryony Gordon‘s Mad World podcast.
“Everyone was saying boxing is good for you and it’s a really good way of letting out aggression,” the royal shared. “And that really saved me because I was on the verge of punching someone, so being able to punch someone who had pads was certainly easier.”
