Prince William, Kate Middleton, and Prince Harry attended the London Marathon in support of Heads Together yesterday, April 23, where they pushed the starting button and cheered on the runners.
The day began with a pre-race reception where William, Kate, and Harry met with Heads Together runners to wish them luck.
After the pre-race reception, the royal trio started the Elite Men’s and Mass race by jointly pushing a big red button.
After starting the race, they moved to Cutty Sark to cheer on the runners with giant Heads Together branded foam fingers.
Harry, Patron of the London Marathon Charitable Foundation, presented the winners of the Wheelchair, Elite Men’s, and Elite Women’s races with their medals, while William and Kate met marathon staff and volunteers.
The royal trio then moved to mile 22 where they handed out water bottles to runners.
Apparently some runners decided to splash water in William and Kate’s direction. If that was intentional and not just water splashing as runners threw their water bottles down, then I think that’s rude.
They then traveled to the finish line to present a number of the amateur runners with medals and congratulate them on finishing the race. This guy in a star costume is everything.
William, Kate, and Harry finished their day at the marathon by attending a post-race reception with Heads Together runners.
All three of the royals wore Heads Together branded jackets from Regatta. Kate also wore her M I H striped wool pullover, black skinny jeans, her Superga Cotu sneakers, and her Kiki McDonough Lauren leaf earrings.
