Kate Middleton was casual yet chic as she attended a SportsAid event on Friday (October 18, 2013) at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. The Duchess of Cambridge went for a striped shirt and blazer, along with some skinny jeans and Stuart Weitzman for Russell & Bromley Corkswoon wedges — which she played volleyball in! Watch video below of Kate in action.
Hayley Connor, a badminton coach for SportsAid, tweeted: “Not your ordinary day – Met HRH the Duchess of Cambridge aka – Kate Middleton. What an amazing opportunity.”
SportsAid was established in 1976, and aims to help young British athletes achieve their true potential by covering essential costs like training, travel, equipment and competition fees. And, proving its success, the charity can say it worked with a whopping two thirds of the British team at the 2012 Games.
Grace Lazard (16), a promising volleyball player, shouted out encouragement to the royal when she joined her four-strong team.
The teenager, who had played this week in an international tournament in Denmark, said: “She was playing in heels, whoever plays in heels is amazing. “She did really well and picked up the sport really quickly. I just feel really privileged and honored to have played with her.”
