Kate visited the prep school in Panbourne to give a very personal address and open a hockey field. St. Andrews was Kate's beloved prep school as a girl, and the future-Duchess spent many happy hours competing in field hockey in her years as a student. She remarked:
"It is such a treat to be back here at St Andrew's. I absolutely loved my time here; they were some of my happiest years, which makes it so incredibly special to be here today.
"In fact, I enjoyed it so much that when I had to leave, I told my mother that I was going to come back to be a teacher. While that didn’t quite happen, I was thrilled to have been asked back today on St. Andrew's Day.
"It was while I was here at school that I realised my love of sport. Sport has been a huge part of my life, and I feel incredibly grateful for the opportunities I had to get outside and play in such wonderful open spaces - though sadly there was nothing quite as glamorous as this in my time!
"I hope that you all enjoy playing sport here as much as I used to, and make the most of these incredible facilities."
Just a short time after Kate's appearance, it was revealed that she was pregnant with her first child.
