Kate Middleton has visited her old prep school St Andrew’s today, to meet students and open a brand new hockey pitch.
The Duchess Of Cambridge wrapped up in a smart green and blue tartan coat by Alexander McQueen, and showed off her gorgeous new retro fringe.
A keen hockey player herself, Kate gave a speech to the school as she opened the pitch, revealing her embarrassing nickname from her school days in Berkshire.
It turns out that the 30-year-old once went by the name “Squeak”, after the school’s pet guinea pig!
Kate said: “It is such a treat l to be back here at St Andrew’s. I absolutely loved my time here; they were some of my happiest years, which makes it so incredibly special to be here today. In fact, I enjoyed it so much that when I had to leave, I told my mother that I was going to come back to be a teacher. While that didn’t quite happen, I was thrilled to have been asked back today on St. Andrew’s Day.
“It was while I was here at school that I realised my love of sport. Sport has been a huge part of my life, and I feel incredibly grateful for the opportunities I had to get outside and play in such wonderful open spaces – though sadly there was nothing quite as glamorous as this in my time!”
She added: “I hope that you all enjoy playing sport here as much as I used to, and make the most of these incredible facilities.”
Hmm, we wonder if Prince William still calls her Squeak! RM
