Despite being slightly overdressed, the Duchess of Sussex still opts to join the members of Coach Core program in a netball passing drill while sporting heels.

AceShowbiz - It seems like Meghan Markle couldn't sacrifice her fashion during a Monday, September 24 engagement with husband Prince Harry. The royal couple visited Loughborough University to meet with members of the Royal Foundation's Coach Core program and even participated in a game of "netball."

The Duchess of Sussex seemingly didn't expect that she would be breaking a sweat that day as she was slightly overdressed in a navy asymmetrical Oscar de la Renta top. She paired the look with Altuzarra trousers and black Aquazzura pumps. However, it didn't stop her from joining in the fun as she stepped in the court in heels.

In a video which has circulated online, the former "Suits" actress could be seen "taking part in a netball passing drill as Harry takes his place at the other side of the gym."

Twitter account of Kensington Palace also posted a photo taken during the visit. The photo saw The Duke and Duchess of Sussex posing with some members of the Coach Core program. "Congratulations to all of today's graduates and winners and thank you @lborouniversity for being such great hosts," wrote the account in the caption.

According to the account, Coach Core was established by The Royal Foundation in 2012. It harnesses the power of sport and its ability to change lives and empower young people. During the event, Meghan presented the "Graduate of the Year" award to Sebastian Vidal, while Harry gave the "Apprentice of the Year" award to Kayleigh.

"My husband has devoted so many years to Coach Core and in the past year of my being in the UK to be able to see not just the impact but the incredible inspiration and sense of purpose that this instills in people is astounding," said Meghan praised Harry during her speech.

Prince Harry also offered some words about the organization's purpose. "Sport can inspire and invigorate, and as we have seen today, with the right opportunity, the right mentoring and the right focus, lives can be changed," the Prince told the audience.
