The Duke & Duchess of Sussex attend The Coach Core Awards At Loughborough University

The Duke & Duchess of Sussex attend The Coach Core Awards At Loughborough University

Today, Harry and Meghan were at Loughbourough University to attend the very first Coach Core Awards. They were joined by athlete Paula Radcliffe as well as tennis player Laura Robson and English netballer Eboni Beckford-Chambers.

What exactly is Coach Core? The programme was created in 2012, with TRH The Duke & Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry within The Royal Foundation.

Coach Core is an apprenticeship programme that helps young people (16-24 years old) who are not in education, employment or training to build a career.

Motivated by the success and impact of the 2012 Olympic Games in London, Their Royal Highnesses
understood the power and impact sport can have on people – especially young people. With this in mind they sought to develop a new programme using sport to help improve life chances.

Each site where Coach Core operates targets those most in need. While some areas may have pockets of affluence, they also have some of the highest levels of youth unemployment and social deprivation.

By bringing together professional clubs, key sporting organisations and multiple businesses that provide employment places and create opportunities, Coach Core is producing well-rounded sports professionals and role models for children in their communities.

The Duchess of Sussex reveals ‘Something Blue’ was stitched to her wedding dress

Meghan discussed her wedding dress in the new documentary ‘Queen of The World’, which will air on September 25th on ITV at 9:15pm UK Time.

SKY NEWS – The Duchess of Sussex has looked back to the “magical day” of her wedding and shared personal details about her gown and veil.

Following the bride’s tradition of having something old, new, borrowed and blue, Meghan revealed her “something blue” was from her first romantic encounter with Prince Harry.

Stitched somewhere inside her wedding dress, she said: “It’s fabric from the dress that I wore on our first date.”

Meghan made her comments in a new ITV documentary, Queen of the World, when she was reunited with her bridal outfit at Buckingham Palace as it is prepared for a new exhibition.

“It’s nice to see it again. It’s beautiful,” she remarked.

The duchess only saw her completed five-metre long veil – embroidered with flowers from each of the 53 Commonwealth nations – on the day she married, having trusted designer Clare Waight Keller.

Speaking about the elaborate silk veil, Meghan said: “It was important for me, especially now being a part of the Royal Family, to have all 53 of the Commonwealth countries incorporated, and I knew that it would be a fun surprise as well for my now husband, who didn’t know, and he was really over the moon to find out that I would make this choice for our day together.

“And I think the other members of the family had a similar reaction, and just appreciation for the fact that we understand how important this is for us and the role that we play, and the work that we’re going to continue to do within the Commonwealth countries.”

Meghan and Harry will begin their first major Commonwealth tour in October travelling to Australia, New Zealand, Tonga and Fiji.

Looking ahead to the trip, the duchess said: “You know, it’s such an exciting time for us, especially with Harry’s role as Youth Ambassador for the Commonwealth and the travel that we intend to do, to do work specifically in all those different territories.

“Which is why it was so important to have some sort of example of that present with us on the (wedding) day, 53 countries as well, my goodness, It’ll keep us busy.”
