Kate Middleton and Prince William were clearly keen to take in as much of Glasgow as possible during their first official visit to the Scottish city, and meeting and greeting their fans was a top priority.
During their tour of the Emirates Arena, Kate Middleton enjoyed a pole vault demonstration and chatted with the teenagers afterwards. Winning over yet more young fans, the Duchess of Cambridge gave thirteen-year-old Scott Connal a round of applause, to which his reacted saying: “I do lots of athletics so I’m used to people clapping at big competitions but never from royalty, it was really inspiring.”
Another teenager, Iona Mezies added: “It was such an honour to meet her. She’s so pretty in real life. It was quite nerve-wracking but she was really encouraging and said we should keep working at it.”
