When it comes to their sporting event styles, Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton couldn’t be more different!

Meghan hit the gym in a pair of heels on Monday, as she and Prince Harry met with honorees from Coach Core, a program that trains young people to become coaches and encourages the next generation of athletes.

The Duchess of Sussex wore a blue belted top by Oscar de la Renta and black flared pants by Altuzarra for the sporty event. And she took part in a passing drill (in heels!) as Harry looked on.

Meghan opted for a much different sports style than her sister-in-law, Kate Middleton, typically does. The royal mom showed up in athletic gear at the National Tennis Centre in Roehampton last year, where she took part in a Tennis for Kids session — the program encourages children, aged 5 to 8, to play her favorite sport.

Earlier this year, Meghan dressed up her casual Invictus Games polo with a chic olive green trench coat from Babaton by Aritzia (shop a similar style here) and black bootcut jeans from her go-to brand, Mother Denim and heels.

It was a very different look from the style Kate opted for when she joined Prince William for training day for the Heads Together team ahead of the London Marathon in February 2017.

While they both rocked a pair of slim-fit black jeans, Kate went for a more athletic look in a fitted red puffer jacket over a black turtleneck. And she swapped her usual pumps for comfy New Balance trainers as she raced William around the track.

And while Kate tends to pull her signature blowout into a low ponytail, Meghan kept her long locks loose for both events.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex visited Loughborough University on Monday — some 100 miles north of London. Coach Core was launched to build on the legacy of the London Olympics in 2012 by the Royal Foundation, the charity organization led by Harry, Meghan, Prince William and Kate Middleton.
