The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were greeted by excited well-wishers they arrived in Mumbles, South Wales, this afternoon.
Prince William, 37, and Kate, 38, beamed as they strolled along the seafront to start a busy afternoon of engagements in the region.
The Duchess of Cambridge wrapped up against the blustery seaside air in a £349 coat from high street label Hobbs, which she paired with what is thought to be a vibrant red dress from Zara.
The couple appeared in particularly good spirits as they made their way towards RNLI’s Mumbles lifeboat station, one of the busiest in Wales.
