A video has been shared on Instagram of Kate Middleton meeting the England Rugby team – and joking with George Ford, asking whether he has been practising drop goals.

The Princess of Wales, 41, was part of the 60,000-strong crowd as she watched the match at the Stade de Marseille, France, on Saturday.

England beat Argentina 27-10, despite being a man down after Tom Curry was shown a red card in the fourth minute, with George Ford scoring all 27 of the points. 

And after the match, Kate, who is patron of the Rugby Football Union, met some of the players.

A clip of the meeting was shared by England Rugby on Instagram, where it quickly garnered in excess of 15,000 likes within an hour.

In the short video, the royal is seen asking George Ford: ‘Have you been practicing your drop goals?’

The player laughs, as another teammate says ‘he’s a natural’, and Kate says ‘amazing’, presumably in response to the player’s performance.

After showing the footage of Kate, Princess of Wales asking about drop goals, the clip cuts to footage of the star practising the move over and over again.

The video is simply caption: ‘Practise makes perfect.’ 

Kate’s trip to Marseille to watch the match was a solo one, as she travelled without her husband Prince William of their three children.

She made a quiet entrance, arriving at the side door of the stadium, rather than the front.

Although alone for the visit, Kate was accompanied by the usual motorcade of black SUVs – and didn’t bother with tinted windows for the short ride. 

However, she still made sure she acknowledged her fans, and was filmed waving at those who had managed to notice her rather incognito arrival.

As well as making a low-key entrance, the royal opted to recycle and outfit for the engagement, donning £1,945 white Alexander McQueen blazer and matching trousers.

The ensemble has become somewhat of a staple in her wardrobe, and she has been snapped wearing it on a number of occasions.

They include an outing to the Commonwealth Games last Summer, as well as during her and Prince William’s Caribbean tour last March.

She complemented her suit with a dazzling jewellery set she first wore for Princess Charlotte’s christening in 2015 – including her pair of £3,750 Mappin & Webb ‘Empress’ Diamond Carriage Earrings and matching £2,000 Empress Mini White Gold & Diamond Pendant Necklace.

While Kate attended yesterday’s match, in her role of patron of the Rugby Football Union, husband William, who is the patron of the Welsh Rugby Union, was set to attend Wales’ opening match against Fiji in Bordeaux today.
