“What a performance by @ParalympicsGB_Official in Tokyo!” the caption read. “The mental strength, determination and talent shown throughout has been nothing short of inspiring, and you should all be incredibly proud of your achievements.”
The couple also made sure to shout-out one of Middleton’s patronages, SportsAid, an organization that provides financial aid to young athletes training to become Olympians, Paralympians and world champions. The caption continued, “@TeamSportsAid has helped support 165 of the 227 members of ParalympicsGB during their careers. Without this support, these athletes may not have had the financial support and recognition they require to perform at the level they do.”
As we mentioned above, Her Majesty shared a rare statement of her own, which was posted on the official Instagram account of the royal family alongside a photo of the athletes and their respective flags.
