The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh are joined by The a duke and Duchess of Cambridge to welcome Tony Tan, the president of the Republic of Singapore, and his wife to the United Kingdom at the Royal Garden Hotel in London, October 21st 2014.
The Duchess of Cambridge has become Patron of @1851Trust.
The Duchess of Cambridge is a keen sportswoman and believes that sport has the power to engage, educate and inspire – and change lives for the better.
This passion for sport stems from Her Royal Highness’s own experience and enjoyment of playing sport from a young age, in particular tennis, hockey and sailing.
This is a belief she shares with her husband The Duke of Cambridge and her brother-in-law Prince Harry.
Their Royal Highnesses used this experience to launch the Coach Core programme through their Royal Foundation.
Coach Core engages with young people, encouraging them to take up sport coaching as a profession and to become role models within their own communities.
After visiting these programmes in Glasgow and London and meeting the young people taking part, The Duchess has seen firsthand how sport really can be a catalyst for positive change.
The Duchess of Cambridge has continued this work by showing her support for those organisations engaging young people through sport. In particular, she is Royal Patron of two sport-related institutions: The 1851 Trust and SportsAid.
