Today, Kate Middleton and her bangs visited her alma mater, St Andrew’s, where she met with pupils and unveiled a plaque to open a new artificial-turf playing field for the school’s field hockey team. As she was a member of said team during her St Andrew’s days (from 1986 to 1995), it was only fitting that she christen the field herself. And despite her decidedly nonathletic outfit — high-heeled boots and a tartan skirt suit by Alexander McQueen — she gamely picked up a stick and scrimmaged with the kids.
It would be almost comforting to see that Kate’s dribbling skills were a little rusty, but, of course, they weren’t. Based on our own years of high-school field hockey glory, she was actually good, especially considering her lack of hair tie and headband fashioned from prewrap athletic tape (if you don’t know what we’re talking about, then you probably never will).
