KATE and Wills grinned with delight as they were coaxed into a ‘Cool Runnings’ bob.
The sled was the one used by the Jamaican team at the Beijing Winter Olympics, who had been training during the lockdown by pushing a mini car.
Wilhelm was amazed at how fast the bob was going and said, “Ninety-five miles an hour? For real?”
Chris Stokes, who attended the Calgary 1988 Winter Olympics made famous by the film Cool Runnings, said: “I had the privilege of being introduced to the Duke and Duchess. It’s great that they came.”
KateDressed in the colors of the Jamaican flag, she was greeted by pop stars and played bongos at the Trench Town Culture Yard Museum, where reggae star Bob Marley lived and wrote the hit song No Woman No Cry.
William later slipped into a number ten vest and starred alongside England ace Raheem Sterling and Villa striker Leon Bailey.
Sterling had been given special clearance by England boss Gareth Southgate to join the Royals in Jamaica ahead of Saturday’s international game against Switzerland.
A noisy crowd rattled fences as the Duke traded passports with the Manchester City star.
William forgot to bring sneakers so walked over and asked a helper if anyone had any.
“I take it you don’t have trainers?” another helper said to a man standing nearby.
But the Duke carried on anyway, cheering for the crowd as he helped Sterling win in a 1-0 nailbiter.
The royal couple had been greeted in Jamaica by ex-Miss World and politician Lisa Hanna, 46, and welcomed to the Governor General’s home.
