Kate Middleton and Prince William enjoyed a rugby game this weekend between the Welsh rugby team and New Zealand at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff.
According to the E! Online, the royal couple, who cheered on the Welsh team during the game, also attended a pregame reception for the Welsh Rugby Charitable Trust. Williams is a member of the trust, which was set up to support former players who were injured while playing for the Welsh Rugby team.
The Huffington Post reports that the Duke and Duchess supported wore the team colors for the rugby match. William wore a red striped tie in honor of the Red Dragons and Kate wore a red LK Bennett coat. Kate also carried a Gucci bag as she sat in the stands for the game.
Edward Jones, WRCT secretary, said:
“We are delighted that HRH the Duke of Cambridge has agreed to be patron of the trust and, in so doing, support the work of providing and caring for those who have suffered serious injury on the rugby field in Wales.”
The royal couple’s rugby date was an opportunity to watch a sporting event and show support for the country’s athletes, but it also provided Kate Middleton with a small glimpse into William’s childhood. While signing the guest book at the Welsh Rugby Charitable Trust, Middleton spotted William’s signature from when he was just 12-years-old. STV reports that the Duchess of Cambridge teased her husband for his poor writing as a child.
