Meghan Markle threw a basketball while wearing heels at the Coach Core Awards
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.

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.
