Royal fans were quick to forget social-distancing measures still in place as they spotted Kate and Prince William arriving on Barry Island today. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s series of engagements in South Wales have been kept a secret to prevent royal fans from gathering outside the venues they were due to visit.
However, a few eagle-eyed royal supporters still managed to spot Kate and William arriving and holidaymakers flocked to the barricades to wave to the couple and attract their attention.
Kate and William, who haven’t been greeted in a similar fashion by the public since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic in March, stopped to wave and speak to the well-wishers.
During their day on Barry Island, the Duke and Duchess met local entrepreneur and business owners to hear about the impact COVID-19 is having on their livelihoods.
Kate and Prince William, who were not wearing face coverings, visited among other venues Marco’s Cafe – a family-run business launched in 1958 which even featured in the BBC comedy gem Gavin and Stacey.
