Kate Middleton channels Mary Poppins in caped coat and Diana's sapphire earrings

Kate Middleton looked every inch the royal Mary Poppins on her Northern Irish jaunt today after a late night pulling pints in Belfast. The Duchess of Cambridge opted for a caped coat, royal blue dress from Jenny Packman and her beloved sapphire earrings, which were originally given to her late mother-in-law Princess Diana as a wedding gift by Crown Prince Fahd of Saudi Arabia. William passed them on to Kate following their engagement in 2010. Kate, 37, looked animated as she chatted to Hillsborough Castle police officers and staff alongside Prince William, who opted for

an open collared shirt, chinos and a navy jumper. Kate and William then visited the Braid Arts Centre to see the charity Cinemagic, who have used film, television and digital technologies to engage with over 500,000 young people. Their final engagement of the day will be at Sure Start, a programme that supports parents with children under four living in disadvantaged areas in Northern Ireland.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were at the iconic Windsor Park football stadium in Belfast to meet young people. William warned the children playing, look out, she goes for the ankles, before

shouting tackle her! Kate told secondary school pupils that her five-year-old son, Prince George, is now learning to play the sport, practising at home and telling her: Mummy, you’re so rubbish. Telling another group she would be joining in the games, she joked: I should have picked up some tips from George. Football fan William said after the match: I could happily stay here playing football all day. The couple are visiting Hillsborough Castle After being welcomed to the national stadium, the Duke and Duchess were given a short history of the Irish Football Association before meeting goalkeeper legendary Pat Jennings, whose famously large hands are immortalised in plastercast in its museum. Now there’s a man who needs no introduction, said the Duke, who is president of the FA. Placing his own hands into the outline of Jennings, he admired the very long fingers that had helped him become a goalkeeping legend. Mum-of-three Kate then met children from McDonalds Fun Football, and was called into actio

n to comfort Jasmine, nine, who had become a little overwhelmed by her royal visitor. Nadine Murphy, a coach, said afterwards: The Duchess took her time and spoke to her about being shy, telling her its OK and a good thing.

She made sure she loved football. She staying with her the whole time with her arm around her. She said ‘I was shy at school as well and it’s OK’. The Du
