Kate goes back to Berks school

The Duchess of Cambridge will take a trip down memory lane as she visits her old school today.

Trip down memory lane for the Duchess

The future Queen of England armed herself with a hockey stick today and relived her childhood days at her preparatory school in Berkshire. High heels and a fashionable outfit didn't stop the Duchess of Cambridge taking to the playing field and giving the ball a good whack!

The Duchess was a pupil there for nearly ten years when her family returned to West Berkshire in 1986 after spending two-and-a-half years in Jordan. Our reporter Mel Bloor has more.

The Duchess of Cambridge will take a trip down memory lane as she visits her old school today.

Kate will have a trip down memory lane when she returns to St Andrew's School in Pangbourne, Berkshire.

The Duchess attended the private school for Years five to right from 1986 until 1995.

Kate will join pupils for St Andrew's Day, which the school traditionally marks with a day of activities.

The institution takes both boys and girls aged from three to 13 and pupils can also board.

The Duchess, now a future queen, was predominantly a day girl at St Andrew's but in her later years also boarded for part of the week.
