Prince Harry and Meghan Markle travelled to Birmingham for another official outing. The royal couple’s first stop was at Millennium Point, a site that provides an area for Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) organisations to work.
Prince Harry and Meghan then attended an event hosted by Stemettes in celebration of International Women’s Day 2018. Stemettes is an organisation which seeks to combat the lack of women in STEM-related careers by inspiring them to pursue these fields of study. In a group session, the couple learnt basic app-building skills and HTML coding.
Next, the couple visited Nechells to meet Coach Core apprentices. Coach Core was created by The Royal Foundation last year to enable young people to learn employable skills through unique sports apprenticeships. 99% of apprentices go into employment or full-time education or.
Meghan and Prince Harry heard about the apprentice’s experience with the Coach Core programme then watched a ball skills training session. The couple appeared to enjoy the training session, laughing and holding hands throughout.
Watch the soon-to-be-married couple participate in the Stemettes learning session below.
