A dressed-down Kate, William and Harry were at Bacon’s College, a secondary school in East London, to launch an initiative to help young sportspeople become coaches.
The Coach Core program is being piloted by Greenhouse, an organisation that will train 16 to 19-year-olds to become qualified coaches and mentors for their schools and communities.
The hope is that the talented young sportsmen and women will be able to inspire their students and build a future for themselves in sport.
Kate looked summery in a patterned, 50s-inspired white and grey Hobbs ‘Check Wessex’ dress. The dress was originally priced at £119 and was marked down to £35 before it sold out.
This dress has long proved a hit for Hobbs. The brand has wheeled out the design for two seasons in a row and are constantly restocking due to popular demand.
A Hobbs representative said: “Our bestselling Wessex dress returned for Spring/Summer 2012 in a new grey and white checked print. Available in linen, it features a flattering ’50s inspired silhouette with a full skirt and nipped in waist. It also has short sleeves and a concealed back zip.
