The day featured masterclasses from top athletes, including marathon runner Paula Radcliffe, tennis star Laura Robson, and netballer Eboni Beckford-Chambers. The events were offered to the 200 young athletes participating in Coach Core ahead of the award ceremony. 

Meghan, 37, and Harry, 34, are also on hand for the special ceremony, which celebrated the young people who took part in Coach Core. Prior to the event, the Royal Foundation awarded Coach Core over $1 million of National Lottery funding from Sport England. The funds will enable another 200 young people to join Coach Core's apprentice program, doubling the number of Coach Core sites. 

The event comes just weeks before the couple's first fall tour of New Zealand, Fiji, Tonga, and Australia, which will begin in mid-October. Meghan recently hosted her first official solo event as a royal last week at Kensington Palace. 

The Duchess celebrated the release of the new Together: Our Community Cookbook, along with the women of the Hubb Community Kitchen as well as her mother, Doria Ragland, and Harry. For more from the event, watch the clip below:
