Kate Middleton Serves Up Fall Fashion Goals on Royal Trip to Manchester With Prince William: Pics!
By Rachel McRady
Can’t stop, won’t stop! It’s been a busy week for the royal family, but on Friday, Kate Middleton and Prince William made yet another public appearance in Manchester, England.
Dressed a chic pink and navy plaid Erdem coat and heels, the Duchess of Cambridge and her hubby greeted the excited crowds, many of which included cheering school children wearing crowns and holding up masks with the royals’ faces on them.
William and Kate attended a paving stone ceremony for Victoria Cross recipients, laying a wreath of poppies in honor of those Manchester residents accepting the highest award available to a member of the British armed forces.
They also met with the living relatives of those who received the honor, many of whom died in battle. There were 628 Victoria Crosses given out during World War I and of those, six recipients hailed from Manchester.
The Royal couple also visited the local Football Museum where Prince William got to hold the goal-winning ball from the 1966 FIFA World Cup and met with winner Roger Hunt.
They also toured the University of Manchester where they met with scientists who showed them a car made out of Graphene.
It’s been a non-stop week for the pair. On Monday, they celebrated World Mental Health Day with Prince Harry. The trio gave a joint speech and rode the London Eye to bring awareness to their charity, Heads Together.
