Kate Middleton and Prince William Will Run Sport Relief 2012 Mile on March 25th

Prince William warming up for The Mile with his brother Prince Harry in 2004. Harry had to cancel because of an injury to his knee.

If you didn’t think the British royal family was cool and as modern as the times, then check out what Prince William and his wife, the former Kate Middleton, will be doing soon. They’re going to run the London Mile together, a charity event to benefit Sport Relief.

The royal couple will run down The Mall past Buckingham Palace with other runners on March 25th.

Other miles will be run all over the UK at the same time  – all to raise money for people living in poverty throughout the UK and overseas.

William has run the Mile in other years as has his brother, Prince Harry, but 2012 will be Kate’s first go at it.

Good for the royal couple getting involved — shows how they don’t only talk about wanting to support charities, they walk (or run!) the walk as well.
