When asked to write about her memories of school sports for Spectator magazine, Pippa penned a few thoughts about luminous gumshields and her "undeniably fanciable" hockey coach, Richard Markham.

In the same article she describes her sister Kate "caked in mud from head to to". We think we can safely say that Pippa's ventures into journalism have produced some truly cringe-worthy moments for the royal family. Oh well.

"When I close my eyes and think about school sports, I envisage myself on the hockey pitch, stick in hand, a luminous gumshield locked on to my chops and a bandana across my forehead... I can also hear the booming voice of Mr Markham, our fierce but undeniably fanciable coach, urging us all on."
