Kate Middleton shows off her hockey skills

What can this Royal not do?

After setting hearts aflutter in Singapore and all across the world, Duchess of Cambrige returned to her alma mater St Andrew's School in England on Friday, where she proceeded to demonstrate you can play hockey AND still look absolutely fabulous.

Wearing an Alexander McQueen coat and high-heeled boots, she took to the turn to help open the new playing field at her school, and in the process of a few swats of a hockey stick also managed to quash
pregnancy rumors.

The royal, formerly known as Kate Middleton, who attended the school from 1986 till 1995, also went on to reveal her childhood nickname, Squeak.

"It was while I was here at school that I realized my love of sport," Middleton, 30, told the assembled media.

"Sport has been a huge part of my life, and I feel incredibly grateful for the opportunities I had to get outside and play in such wonderful open spaces—though, sadly, there was nothing quite as glamorous as this in my time!

Kate also told teachers and students at her school that her 10 years there were "some of my happiest years" and that she enjoyed it so much that she had told her mother she wanted to return as a teacher.

Well, not much chance of that happening now.

    If there's one car that's particularly sought-after among today's well-heeled car collectors, a Ferrari 250 would be it. Usually it's the GTO variant, like the 1963 that sold for a record $52 million last year. A 250 of any sorts demands unfathomable cash, however, which is why we can but gawk at this 250 Testa Rossa. It's as close as any mere mortal will ever come to owning one.
