“Now, because you’re such keen tennis fans, I’ve got a very important person that’s going to come and join us,” Kate announced to the group while giving them a few clues to see if they could “guess who the special guest might be.”
“He plays tennis for Great Britain,” she added. “He’s a two-time Olympic champion. He’s a former world No. 1 …”
The kids then guessed it was Murray who took time out to answer several questions ranging from why he picked tennis as a career to how old he was the first time he played the sport.
