Kate Takes Part in a Training Session at the Olympic Hockey Arena

This morning, the Duchess of Cambridge, who is an ambassador for the London 2012 Olympics and Paralympics toured Riverside Arena in Olympic Park (east London). She met with members of the men’s and women’s GB Hockey teams as well as various dignitaries during her 90-minute visit.

Kate was captain of the first XI hockey team when she attended Marlborough College and was eager to take part in a training sesson.

The Duchess took three shots at goal from the left hand side of the goal mouth and missed. She was then moved to the centre and scored first time, prompting loud applause.

She arrived at the venue in skin tight tangerine J Brand 811 Mid-Rise Skinny Leg ($176) three quarter length jeans, LK Bennett navy ‘Art’ Heels (originally £155 went on sale for £95) and a blue Emilio Pucci ‘Punto Milano’ blazer (£1,145) with an official Team GB supporters’ scarf (large £10, small £5). Later, she changed into a grey GB sweatshirt and Adidas tennis shoes.
