Kate Middletons sweet gesture to husband William as royal couple wave to onlookers

Kate Middleton was pictured placing her hand on her husband’s back as they attended a royal function at the Copper Box Arena in London today.

Kate, 40, and her husband, Prince William, 40, were photographed on Thursday while attending an event in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park for Coach Core’s 10th anniversary.

Coach Core was launched in 2012 in the wake of both the Olympics and the London Riots, according to its website.

The business was started by the Royal Foundation of The Prince and Princess of Wales and seeks to train the next generation of sports coaches.

Kate oozed sophistication in a royal blue wool blazer with black detailing, which she paired with black trousers and simple black heels.

Meanwhile, the Prince of Wales was dressed in a dark blue suit with an accompanying light blue shirt.

Coach Core works across 17 UK sites where they have helped over 750 disadvantaged youngsters make their start in the sporting world through coaching apprenticeships.

The royals have been heavily involved with the charity throughout the years, having opened the Coach Core awards back in 2020 to celebrate the group's successes.

At the time, Prince William said: "This year more than any in the program's history, Coach Core's apprentices have had to overcome challenges, adapt and learn to be flexible in the face of difficulty.

"I am so proud, both of your individual accomplishments this year and of Coach Core itself."

Will and Kate are no strangers to getting stuck in, as seen in 2018 when they visited South Essex Gymnastic Club to compete in games of tennis and Boccia.

Kate even played in heels!

Yesterday, Prince William had a video call with the mayor of Boston, Michelle Wu, about the upcoming December Earthshot Prize awards.

Both Will and Kate were supposed to fly out to the summit last month but sadly had to cancel following the death of his grandmother Queen Elizabeth.

Instead, William addressed the gathering via video call and told listeners that he would definitely be coming to the ceremony at the end of the year.

He said: "Although it is the saddest circumstances that I am unable to join you today, I am able to join you in video form as you gather in New York for the Earthshot Prize innovation summit."

William continued: "During this time of grief, I take great comfort in your continued enthusiasm, optimism and commitment to the Earthshot Prize and what we are trying to achieve.

"Protecting the environment was of course close to my grandmother's heart, and I know she would be delighted to hear about this event and the support you are all giving our Earthshot Prize finalists, the next generation of environmental pioneers.

"Together in this room are the people and organisations who will help us achieve our Earthshot mission – to rejuvenate our planet within this current decade."
