Kate Middleton - Kate Middleton meets England's football team

Kate Middleton opened the England Football Association's new centre of excellence yesterday (09.10.12).

The British royal accompanied her husband the Duke of Cambridge to Staffordshire for the unveiling of St George's Park, where they met the England national football team players, including captain Steven Gerrard and manager Roy Hodgson.

Duchess Catherine was dressed to impress in a grey wool Reiss coat, which she had belted to emphasise her tiny waist, and chic black suede boots.

The brunette beauty joked with Burton MP Andrew Griffiths that she would join in with the team's training session if he had a spare pair of football boots.

He said: ''I asked if she was going to come for a kickabout later. She said, 'Have you got a pair of trainers I can borrow?'

''I said, 'It can be arranged.' She just laughed.''

Prince William was mocked by the players for supporting Premier League side Aston Villa.

Andrew said: ''There was a lot of ribbing about Aston Villa and whether they are going to have any players in the England team. He said that was not his decision.

''He asked me if I thought the centre would deliver an England World Cup win. I said, 'Of course, guaranteed.' There was a wry smile. That about sums it up.''

The MP added that he was ''very impressed'' Kate and William had taken time out to shown their support for the brand new training complex.
