Prince Edward looked in good spirits as he played a game of tennis in La Bastide Clairence, southwestern France, on Monday

The Earl of Wessex, 54, played an exhibition match of 'real tennis', the original racket sport from which the modern game of tennis is derived

Edward is said to be a big fan of the real tennis, which is played with curved rackets in an indoor court with a sloping roof

The court was built in 1511 in the Basque Country at La Bastide-Clairence, a small typical French village near the Spanish border

Henry VIII was also said to be passionate about it, but there are only 43 surviving real tennis courts in the entire world
