Kate repeated another favorite today, bringing back her red LK Bennett Ami coat in support of Wales’ rugby team, known as the Red Dragons. The Duke and Duchess were at Millennium Stadium in Cardiff to watch the match against New Zealand’s All Blacks team.

The Trust supports players seriously injured during their careers, Prince William is patron of the organization. The couple spent time speaking with former players and Trust officials before today’s game. More from Wales Online:

Philip Harris, 59, who was partially paralysed down his left side after being injured in a game, said he believed the royal couple’s appearance represented a firm pledge to support the trust.

Mr Harris, from Brynamman, near Swansea, said: The Duke was very inquisitive, he was very caring and interested in all of us here today.

He is dedicated to this great cause, he has shown that today. To get somebody of his stature to support us is incredible.

This is a great charity, it has brought us comradeship and friendship as well as emotional and physical support. We would have been lost without it, so to have Prince William here has meant a lot to us.

The game is a fierce rivalry, ceremonies beforehand show how enormous Millennium Stadium really is.
