Duke and Duchess William and Kate don their trainers for the Rippa Rugby Tournament
Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, William and Kate, swapped their more formal attire for jeans and trainers on Sunday as they got stuck in to a rugby tournament on the seventh day of their royal tour.

Having arrived in the city of Dunedin in the morning to a traditional welcome and a church service at St Paul’s Cathedral it was time for the couple to enjoy some sporty fun at the Forsyth Barr stadium in Dunedin.

Kate changed out of her aquamarine Emilia Wickstead dress, opting for a cream jumper, jeans and grey trainers while William exchanged his navy suit for beige chinos, a blue jumper and a white shirt.
 

Joined by members of New Zealand’s formidable national rugby team, the All Blacks, the future King and Queen were challenged with each coaching a team of youngsters during a match.

As they geared up for the challenge Kate was seen cheering and spurring on the members of her team.

William’s group won the game 30-20, a welcome victory for the Prince who lost two sailing races to Kate during their visit to Auckland earlier in the week.

Given the sporty competition between the husband and wife, William was sure to celebrate his team’s win in front of Kate.
