Duke and Duchess of Cambridge attend memorial service
Britain’s Duke and Duchess of Cambridge attended the memorial service for former Olympic gold winner Richard Meade on Thursday (26.03.15).
The royal couple, who are currently preparing for the birth of their second child, were joined at the service at Bath’s Abbey by Prince Harry.
The trio are all keen equestrian fans and were eager to pay their respects to Meade, who was Britain’s most successful equestrian performer, winning gold medals at Mexico City in 1968 and Munich in 1972.
Meanwhile, it was revealed earlier this month that Duchess Catherine – who was known as Kate Middleton prior to her marriage in 2011 – is due to give birth in “mid-April”.
The 33-year-old royal revealed her predicted delivery date to a member of the public during a charity engagement at Brookhill Children’s Centre in Woolwich, south east London.
While at the event, the Duchess met mothers who use the centre and volunteers who work for the organisation, including Christie Osbourne who she told when she was due.
Recalling their meeting, Ms. Osbourne said: “I told her she is beautiful and that she’s got a tiny little bump. I asked when her baby is due and she said mid-to-end of April.”
