Kate Middleton isn't just calling Prince Harry's bluff with his recent joke that put his brother and sister-in-law in the headlines, she's serious. Kate reveals that despite Harry's joke she's not ruling out running in next year's marathon. Not only will it be a massive exercise in endurance for the couple, it will also present a bit of revenge on Prince Harry.
When Harry was passing out the medals for this year's marathon winners for the annual London event, he joked that William and Kate will be running the race next year. This instantly took off in the headlines across the globe. It wasn't until the palace officials reported that Kate and William have no plans of running in the marathon that the story went away.
While Kate was visiting a Royal British Legion event at Goldsmiths' Hall this week, she told one of the guests that she and William haven't ruled out running in the marathon next year, according to the London Evening Standard. Kate also said that William is "going to have to think of something to get him (Harry) back" for verbally signing Kate and William up for the marathon.
If Kate and William actually do run this course, it will not only call Harry's bluff, but it could work as a dare to get him to sign up too. Even though William and Harry are princes, they're brothers first and sibling rivalry is bound to kick in which could result in all three of them running the course in 2013.
If any celebrity couple could actually run that 26.2 mile course together, it would be Kate and William who are in great shape, but they'd probably need to start training for the endurance part that comes along with running a marathon. If the royal couple do decide to enter this event, can you image the security nightmare this will present along the 26 mile stretch?
While Michele Obama is on a mission to get America healthy, Kate and William running a marathon would act as a message to all the couch potatoes across the pond. If they do decide to run in the marathon, they have an entire year to work it into messages for the people of Britain about getting in shape. This could work into a campaign of living healthy for the country with Kate and William at the helm.
