Kate Middleton criticised for going off-roading while pregnant

She may be four months pregnant but that didn’t stop Kate Middleton from taking on a 4X4 off-roading challenge yesterday.

The 35-year-old Duchess of Cambridge was visiting the Jaguar Land Rover's Solihull Manufacturing Plant in Birmingham with Prince William when she decided to get behind the wheel.

Despite the activity not being recommended for pregnant women, Kate took to the challenge like a pro, with Prince William looking on from the sidelines.

And while her husband may have been smiling at her braveness, people on Twitter weren’t impressed with the Duchess.

“Woah this breaks quite a few myths about pregnancy,” one person said.

“Holy moly... I wouldn't want to attempt that,” another person commenter, while another replied: “Esp. being pregnant”.
