The royals, who were making their first official visit to Wales since announcing their recent engagement, were invited to attend a session of StreetGames’ award-winning Doorstep Sport and Us Girls Wales programmes.

The event, which took place at the STAR Hub centre in Tremorfa this Thursday, saw the couple engaging with tutors, volunteers and participants for well over an hour, during which time they also observed a wide range of activities, including table tennis and a group dance routine.

The visit marked the third occasion that the Prince has lent his support to StreetGames, having earlier joined the call to #EndHolidayHunger in the Summer, as well as attending a TFU/ StreetGames ‘Try For Change’ session back in 2016!

The evening’s event garnered widespread coverage, both in traditional media and online, with thousands of people engaging with StreetGames, its tutors and programmes via social media, as well as through radio and TV broadcasts.

StreetGames would like to thank all those who worked so hard to make the event such a rewarding and memorable experience, including staff at Kensington Palace, STAR Hub and of course – the royal couple themselves!
