Under the ruling Tuesday, the French gossip magazine Closer faces a daily fine of C10,000 ($13,100) if it fails to hand over the photos taken during the royals’ vacation in southern France and cannot disseminate them any further, including on its website and tablet app. (Photos: AFP/GettyImages)

She shoots, she scores! The former Kate Middleton smashed home a goal Thursday as she played a bit of field hockey while visiting the British Olympic women’s team. The Duchess of Cambridge, who captained the team at her high school, Marlborough College, took the field in a morale-boosting mission ahead of the July 27-Aug. 12 London games.

The duchess arrived at Olympic Park in heels, but quickly donned a gray sweatshirt over coral colored jeans. Though she expressed some concern the jeans would clash with the bright blue pitch, she grabbed a stick and took a few shots.

She told the crowd it’s been a while since she played.

She said “my brain thinks I can do all these wonderful things but my body just doesn’t play ball.”
