On Monday, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were seen at Loughborough University which is north of London. There they met with honorees from the Coach Core Awards.


For the event, Duchess Meghan was royally decked out. Despite this, she still took part in a game of basketball wearing heels.

Monday afternoon saw the first Coach Core Awards which were attended by Prince Harry and his wife, Duchess Meghan. The program encourages young people to become involved in sports coaching.

Even though it was a sporting event, Meghan wore a blue belted top by Oscar de la Renta and black flared pants by Altuzarra. She was seen passing the purple basketball back and forth to the mentees undergoing coach training.

The Royal pair started things off by joining in on a netball practice drill. The affectionate twosome stood back-to-back as they enjoyed themselves, with Meghan effortlessly playing in heels.


The two also got to meet with 60 graduating We Are Coach Core apprentices. Loughborough University is a public research university about two hours north of Kensington Palace.


The Duke and Duchess traveled by train to get there. During the event, the pair were seen hugging and showing their affection for each other.


At one point, the newlyweds participated in a basketball game to see who could shoot the most hoops. Meghan took the lead, but Harry ended up winning.


At the end of the game, the Prince gave his wife a quick, congratulatory hug at the end of the match. The program provides training around the UK for young adults who become “apprentices” who receive mentoring and other coaching skills so they can become professionals in the field.

It was founded after the 2012 London Olympics and will be receiving extra funding this year.

Another Royal was inspired by Duchess Meghan’s impeccable dress sense. This month, Princess Beatrice, 26, wore the exact same Misha Nonoo skirt to a Big Change charity event in Manchester that Megan had worn at her recent book launch.

At the time, Duchess Meghan had paired the pleated mini-length skirt with a black turtleneck jumper and a royal blue coat.
