Kate Middleton and Prince William used an unusually lavish form of transport for today's visit to the new England football team's training ground in Staffordshire.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge arrived at the FA's training camp in a helicopter, having whizzed up from London for their 11:30am start time.

The royal couple spent the day chatting to England manager Roy Hodgson and his footie team before watching them train at St George's Park, Burton-Upon-Trent.

Prince William, who is the president of the Football Association, was given a tour of the £100m complex along with Kate.

Kate Middleton wore a tailored grey coat from her high street favourite Reiss for the sporting day out.

Yesterday William and Kate stepped out for their first official UK engagement since the topless photo scandal broke a few weeks ago. The pair spent the afternoon meeting trainee lawyers at the Middle Temple Treasury in London.

Perhaps to prove a point, Kate wore a chic burgundy skirt suit by French designer Paule Ka.

Tomorrow the Duchess of Cambridge will fly solo on an official visit to Newcastle, while Prince William attends the funeral of his former nanny, Olga Powell.
