STORY: The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry traveled to Bacon's College in Rotherhithe in south-east London Thursday, to help launch a project inspired by the need to create a training program in recognition of London hosting the Olympics.
The Coach Core program, run by the charity Greenhouse in partnership with The Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry, is a pilot project to train 16 to 19-year-olds to become qualified coaches and mentors for their schools and communities.
Duchess of Cambridge, popularly called Kate, who was wearing a white and gray Hobbs checked Wessex summer dress, first tried her hand at table tennis against Hiba Feredj, the current English schools under-13 champion. Kate's efforts saw her described as "unbelievably talented" as she managed to win two points out of 10.
Prince Harry joined his brother and sister-in-law but when he stepped on to a basketball court his efforts were described as "terrible" by his brother Prince William as he missed the hoop four times.
In a speech to launch the Coach Core project, which will work in deprived areas, Prince William, who showed determination despite failing to score a goal, described his efforts at football as like a "giraffe on ice".
