You're welcome Betsy - it's quite understandable that people outside of the UK wouldn't know that Anglesey is in Wales.

Where they're going tomorrow is in south Wales (Anglesey is north) & there is a bit of north/south divide in Wales due to its history & culture so people in south Wales will be pleased to see them in Port Talbot & along the coast to Mumbles.

LOL thanks to having watched a few Wales-set episodes of Escape to the Country, lol, I know that Anglesey is in Wales However, I don't know much about it - or Wales, to be honest; it’s gorgeous (I admit my travels and focus re: UK have been about England and Scotland)

That's a great thing that they are visiting an area that seems like it could use a bit of a boost..

There are a lot of people on social media who are coining a new phrase for Catherine, The Children's Princess.

The Cambridges are a real asset to the BRF and the UK. We are lucky to have them indeed!

Ice cream is such a leveler..........I mean, who doesn't love it? The kids are so adorable, and William and Kate are such naturals...

I'm really looking forward to their joint engagement with Charles and Camilla next week; I just enjoy seeing them together.....

So, I completely agree with the sentiment that they are, indeed, an incredibly valuable asset to the RF and the monarchy as an institution. I also agree that they're an incredibly genuine and lovely couple. But, can we talk for just a minute about William's reported comments in answer to a fan telling him that Charlotte is their favorite? That reply that Charlotte is lovely just like his wife? I mean, can it really get any sweeter?! Talk about a massive "awwwwww" moment.

a very timely visit. with most british royals being old and in the groups of risk (queen, charles, anne), W&K are among the only ones remaining to visit the different parts of society at these trying times (specially now that H&M and andrew are out of action) - well done to them as i am sure this is going a long way in boosting morale of key staff.

True, but Anne is right on the cusp...However, who would volunteer to tell her she has to stay home?
