William and Kate are travelling the length of Wales today, first visiting Holyhead in Anglesey in the north, and then travelling to Swansea in the south-west. |
The royal couple had promised to visit at the earliest opportunity following the death of the Queen, and return hoping to begin 'deepening the trust and respect' they have with the people of Wales.
While in Holyhead, they are visiting the local RNLI Lifeboat Station, meeting the crew, volunteers and some of those who have previously been rescued by the team.
It is one of the oldest lifeboat stations on the Welsh coast and, across the years, members have received a total of 70 awards for gallantry.
They will then take a walk to the Holyhead Marine and Cafe Bar where they will meet people from local small businesses and organisations, including the coastguard and sea cadets.
After leaving Holyhead, they will travel to St Thomas Church in Swansea which has transformed over the last two years into a community hub.
The church now provides vital services to hundreds of people in the city such as a not-for-profit cafe and facilities for the homeless including food, showers and toilets.
William and Kate will get a chance to meet volunteers who work in the church's food bank and the Swansea Baby Basics initiative, which distributes essential items such as toiletries and clothing to vulnerable mothers.
