Prince William and Kate Middleton Change Into Their Sneakers to Play Soccer in Northern Ireland — See the Photos!

They’re back at it again! After Kate Middleton and Prince William took a week off from their royal duties to spend some time with their kids, they headed to Northern Ireland on Wednesday, February 27, to kick off their royal tour.

At the Windsor Park Stadium in Belfast, the Duchess of Cambridge, 37, changed out of her beautiful red coat and black booties to play soccer with her husband, 36, and some of the local school kids in a blue jacket and matching sneakers. While they got very active on the field, which is home to the Irish Football Association, the pair learned first-hand how soccer can help to bring different communities together.

The royal duo ventured to Northern Ireland as soon as Meghan Markle and Prince Harry ended their three-day trip in Morocco. Although the former actress, 37, hasn’t had a lot of time to spend with her sister-in-law, she has reportedly been trying to do everything in her power to strengthen her relationship with Kate. “It’s not bad by any means,” a source recently told Us Weekly about Meg and Kate’s relationship, “but they want to make it stronger.”
