Skinny jeans may be making a comeback after Princess Kate wore them at SportsAid’s mental fitness workshop with husband Prince William.
In case you didn’t throw out all of your skinny jeans after Gen Z declared them “cheugy,” the Princess of Wales just made the case for bringing them back into your wardrobe.
Princess Kate joined husband Prince William on a visit to SportsAid’s mental fitness workshop at the Bisham Abbey National Sports Centre in Bisham Village, England. For the engagement, the couple matched in preppy but casual looks. Kate wore a pair of skinny jeans in a dark wash, pairing them with a white puff-sleeve blouse from Ralph Lauren and a cobalt-blue double-breasted blazer from Zara. She finished off the outfit with a pair of white Veja sneakers and gold-plated star-shaped earrings from EarSass.
Meanwhile, William wore a dark blue collared sweater layered over a light blue button-down, plus a pair of navy blue trousers and olive-green sneakers.
SportsAid, an organization William and Kate have been royal patrons of since 2013, runs its workshop in partnership with BelievePerform, a consultancy that promotes mental health and well-being.
The couple’s visit follows a survey conducted in September by SportsAid, with input from BelievePerform. In the survey responses, 42 percent of young athletes said they “occasionally” feel they have “little” access to mental health services, or “none,” or are “not sure.”
At the workshop, Kate and William met with some of the young athletes and their parents, as well as SportsAid ambassadors Ellie Simmonds, a gold-medal-winning Paralympic swimmer, and Ama Agbeze, a Commonwealth champion netball player. The couple even participated in a few games with the athletes. They attempted to score points in a netball hoop as external pressures—such as the ticking of the clock and crowd noise—were simulated. They also played goalball, a Paralympic team sport for the visually impaired.
