BASILDON, England – The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visited a sports center in the English county of Essex on Tuesday to meet with apprentices and graduates from a program that aims to get more people involved in the leisure sector.
Prince William, the second in line to the United Kingdom’s throne, and his wife Catherine greeted members of the public in Basildon, around 42 kilometers (26 miles) east of downtown London, before heading into the recreational center to chat with members of Coach Core.
“The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge arrive at Coach Core in Essex,” Kensington Palace wrote on social media. “The apprenticeship program helps young people who are not in education, employment or training to build a career in sports coaching.”
Prince William, the eldest son of Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana, married Catherine in 2011 after having met her while both were students at the prestigious St. Andrews University in Scotland.
They have three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.
