Speaking to the youngsters, the Princess could be heard asking them: "Can you do the splits?"

Kate then revealed: "I was able to do it when I was little, but I’ll have to keep practising now."

As Grace Evans, six, gave the couple a demonstration of the splits, Kate told her: "My little girl [Charlotte] likes to do that too."

Charlotte was enthralled by the gymnastics at the 2022 Commonwealth Games

William and Kate's daughter, Princess Charlotte, seven, revealed her passion for gymnastics at the Commonwealth Games during a joint outing with her parents last August.

During the visit, the young royal gave an insight into her favourite hobbies, with Tim Lawler, chief executive of SportsAid, revealing: "She really, really loved seeing the swimming, but she's interested in the gymnastics."

"While they're trying lots of different sports at home, when I asked her about sport she answered very easily and said, 'It's gymnastics that I like'," he added.

Kate and William took part in a spin class challenge

The Prince and Princess of Wales, who are renowned for their love of sport, showed off their competitive side once again as they took part in a spin class challenge at the leisure centre.

And despite wearing a midi skirt and heels, it was Kate who was victorious during the 45-second race and was handed a gold cup for her effort.

William and Kate made the trip to south Wales to help champion mental health initiatives and meet with local communities.

Before their final stop of the day, the Prince was announced as the new patron of the Wales Air Ambulance charity.

It is the first Welsh patronage to be announced for William since he was given the title the Prince of Wales by the King.
