Prince William looks spiffy in suit while throwing punches for charity


Who knew Prince William has one heck of a right hook?

The Prince, with Princess of Wales, Kate Middleton, stopped by the Copper Box Arena in London on Thursday to throw some punches during an event with Coach Core — the charity the pair started in 2012.

The venue, located in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park — which was used for the 2012 Games — hosted the event in celebration of its 10-year anniversary.

The gloved royal, 40, hit the gym in his formal dark navy suit as onlookers watched him beat up a red punching bag, The Sun reported.

He smiled throughout the visit, even moving on to some light sparring with another coach.

Meanwhile, Kate, 40, sported a vintage blue Chanel blazer for the occasion. The couple was seen grinning as they interacted with members of the program and learned about the different sports sessions the center offers.

Coach Core aims to train the next generation’s sports coaches who will then go on to inspire their communities.

Will and Kate launched the organization the same year as the Olympic games. It is now an independent charity that has supported over 750 disadvantaged young people onto community sports coaching apprenticeships
