Prince William and Kate Middleton Get Super Sporty During Visit to Derry

Kate Middleton and Prince William started off the week on the red carpet. But on Wednesday, they traded their respective gown and dress pants for some sneakers and joggers.

Yesterday, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge took a trip to Northern Ireland to visit Ulster University’s Magee Campus where they met with some of the nursing students they spoke to virtually earlier this year. The couple shared a handful of snaps from the event on Instagram alongside the caption, “It’s great to be back in Northern Ireland for a day in Derry-Londonderry hearing from young people about how life has been during the pandemic and meeting organizations working across communities.”

Later in the day, the couple swapped their business attire for athletic ensembles and joined players, coaches and volunteers involved in the Sport Uniting Communities initiative for a variety of physical activities. During the outing, the duke and duchess practiced their football (soccer to us Americans) skills and Prince William even kicked a rugby ball. See the images from the visit below.

According to the post’s caption, “The project is a collaboration between the Irish Football Association, Ulster Gaelic Athletic Association and Ulster Rugby and aims to promote peace and reconciliation. Sport Uniting Communities uses the reach of each sport to promote meaningful, purposeful and sustained contact between individuals from different backgrounds—particularly across the religious divide – building and fostering relationships.”

These two can really do it all.
