The Princess of Wales paid a visit to Maidenhead Rugby Club on Thursday to discuss the Shaping Us campaign and the role the community plays in supporting children. For her sporty outing, the royal put her styling skills to the test, formulating an activewear aesthetic perfect for a day on the pitch.

The 41-year-old sported a pair of baby slim-fit joggers with an elasticated waist and a slightly cropped silhouette. She paired the trousers with an aqua-toned T-shirt featuring the English rose and a pair of white sneakers, perfect for showing off her athletic skills on the pitch.

Princess Kate launched her Shaping Us campaign in January 2023. Her campaign aims to improve society's understanding of the importance of early childhood in shaping adulthood and society as a whole. It aims to highlight the importance of supporting young children and those caring for them.

At the time of its launch, Princess Kate said: "The way we develop, through our experiences, relationships and surroundings during our early childhood, fundamentally shapes our whole lives.

"It affects everything from our ability to form relationships and thrive at work, to our mental and physical well-being as adults and the way we parent our own children.

"These are the most preventative years. By focusing our collective time, energy and resources to build a supportive, nurturing world around the youngest members of our society and those caring for them, we can make a huge difference to the health and happiness of generations to come.
