Kate visited her former prep school St Andrews School today, 30th November 2012. Young children awaited the Dutchess as she arrived at the school and also opened the new hockey pitch at her visit. She gave a speech at the opening of the pitch saying :
‘It is such a treat l to be back here at St Andrew’s. I absolutely loved my time here; they were some of my happiest years, which makes it so incredibly special to be here today.
‘In fact, I enjoyed it so much that when I had to leave, I told my mother that I was going to come back to be a teacher. While that didn’t quite happen, I was thrilled to have been asked back today on St. Andrew’s Day.’
The 30 year old’s love for sport made her show off her royal skills with a group of 12 year olds at a training session. Was she in joggers and trainers? I don’t think so! She was running about the pitch in her high heeled calf-length boots and Alexander McQueen Tartan Frock Coat. The blue and green tartan coat blended nicely with the school uniform.
I’m sure the teachers were happy to see her back and the pupils were thrilled to have met her on St Andrews Day.
