Duchess Catherine reveals Prince George thinks she’s “rubbish” at football

It seems the Duchess of Cambridge's kids are less than impressed with her ball skills.

Duchess Catherine has revealed that Prince George thinks she's "rubbish" at football, while visiting Belfast today with her husband Prince William.
While chatting with secondary school students at Windsor Park football stadium the Duchess admitted her own children don't think much of her football skills.
According to The Telegraph, five-year-old Prince George is currently learning to play football and has told and tells the Duchess of Cambridge, "Mummy, you're so rubbish".
Joking that she "should have picked up some tips from George," when she revealed she be joining in on a match.
It seems Prince William was also in the mood for a little laugh.
While the royal couple joined in on a friendly match with primary school children, William was overheard warning the kids of his wife's ball tactics: "Look out, she goes for the ankles!"
The pair also left with gifts for their three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, 3 and ten-month-old Prince Louis – personalised Northern Ireland team shirts.
The Cambridges' visit was to highlight the Irish Football Association's (IFA) 'Shooting Stars' outreach program, which encourages young girls to play football along with the 'Ahead of the Game' which works to support clubs and volunteers dealing with mental health issues.
