Known for her warmth, the Princess’ interaction with Theo is utterly heart-warming and many people are understood to have turned out to see them in Wales.
As reported by the BBC (opens in new tab), Sian Price who used to be the helm on the inshore lifeboat and whose father-in-law is the coxswain declared, "It's a privilege to witness part of this, their first tour as Prince and Princess of Wales. We couldn't get down to London recently, so it's great they are coming here."
Holyhead is one of the oldest lifeboat stations on the Welsh coast and has received 70 awards for gallantry. For this historic engagement, Catherine kept her look elegant and classic, opting for a red military-style coat with statement gold buttons and paired it with a black top, trousers and heels.
Prince William wore a dark suit and both looked relaxed and happy to be out and about in Wales, where they'd also undertaken their first joint official engagement together in 2011 dedicating a new lifeboat at the RNLI station at Treaddur Bay.
Following Prince William and Catherine’s wedding (opens in new tab) in 2011, the couple lived in Anglesey for three years during his time working as an RAF search and rescue pilot. During this recent visit, they will also go to Holyhead Marine and Café Bar where they will get to meet local people, including the Coastguard and Sea Cadets.
Prince William and Princess Catherine will also visit the re-developed St Thomas’ Church in Swansea which provides support for people in the local areas and is home to a food bank and Swansea Baby Initiative which distributes essentials to vulnerable mothers.
Ahead of their visit, it was declared in a statement that the Prince and Princess of Wales “want to do their part to support the aspirations of the Welsh people and to shine a spotlight on both the challenges and opportunities in front of them”.
