Kate, 38, even grabbed a Gaelic football – having a kick-a-about with some local kids this afternoon.

The duchess seemed comfortable on the field, having previously competing in rowing, swimming and tennis while growing up.

While Prince William, 37, did his best to keep up, Kate lit up as she chatted with local youngsters and hit balls across the field while hurling in Galway.

The mum-of-three appeared to be in her element as she played with the little athletes at Salthill Knockncarra GAA Club after changing into black trousers and a warm coral jumper.

It comes after William himself impressed crowds as he deftly juggled three balls in front of stunned artists and musicians.

And while the future king appeared nervous at first, the crowd burst into spontaneous applause as he managed to keep three balls in the air for several seconds.

The 37-year-old then tried to juggle with four balls – but wasn’t as successful as the objects went flying chaotically into the air.

And Kate, who earlier embraced green for her last day in in Ireland in a stunning Suzannah polka dot maxi-dress, laughed at her husband’s antics

Their final day had initially been delayed by bad weather this morning with their flight put back by at least 30 minutes due to fog in Dublin.

But despite the hold-up, the couple beamed as they conducted their last engagements before meeting members of the public – shaking hands with dozens of people without gloves amid the coronavirus scare.

It comes after a busy two days for Kate and William, who yesterday threw their support behind mental health and social justice charities.

And they have seemed in good spirits as they got involved in everything from ping pong games to cooking vegetable soup during the tour.

It comes as Meghan Markle is today back in Britain for the first time since her split from the Royal Family was revealed.

The Duchess of Sussex will be with Harry in London for a bash celebrating the sporting achievements of wounded servicemen.

Meghan, 38, is believed to have left baby Archie behind as she flew in from Canada to complete her final round of official royal engagements.

Meghan and Harry were last in the UK together in January before the terms of their Megxit were agreed.

As well as tonight’s appearance at the Endeavour Fund Awards at Mansion House, the couple will be at Saturday’s Mountbatten Festival of Music at the Royal Albert Hall.
