Harry and Meghan set to attend coaching awards ceremony

The Duke of Sussex will make a speech at the Loughborough University event.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are set to attend a coaching awards ceremony on Monday for young people who may now be on track for a future in the world of sport.

The special day will see masterclasses from world record holder Paula Radcliffe, tennis player Laura Robson and England netballer Eboni Beckford-Chambers and the apprentices showing off their skills in a series of drills and team games, before Harry and Meghan present the prizes in the Coach Core Awards at Loughborough University.

Harry is also set to give a speech to the young apprentices.

The scheme, set up by The Royal Foundation in 2012 to use the power of sport to help change lives, trains hundreds of young apprentices and puts them in touch with the biggest sports clubs in the country.

The apprentices, who are not in education or employment, get tuition, a wage and hopefully a chance to become the next generation of sports coaches.

Community outreach project of the year, graduate of the year, mentor of the year, educator of the year and apprentice of the year are among some of the awards which are to be handed out.
