The Royals often try activities they may not be particularly skilled at or even like, just to be good guests/sports when they are visiting on tour.

There've been some nice pictures of them walking along the cliffs at Howth - just the two of them, looking very together.

Yes especially if the activities are a part of the host nation's cultural heritage which is why we'll often see the royals graciously taking part in some sporting activities or traditional dances.

Has William had a go at hurling?

This trip is bound to be deemed a huge success for The Cambridge’s & Ireland’s hospitable & welcoming reputation.!No distracting background documentaries that we know about: tick, no political faux pas: tick, and certainly no whining & selfish self-promotion like other royal tours with you know who: tick!

Yeah, may be, but I just can't see her Majesty The Queen doing circus tricks, or The Prince of Wales... This might be, because they are too old. What leads to the question: When will Prince William be too old?

My suspicion is: He, William, is especially asking for this kind of activities in the planning phase of his trips abroad. Maybe he thinks, this is funny... I don't! But this is just my humble opinion!

Yesterday The Duchess of Cornwall (72), chose to step inside an air raid shelter for a photo op and joked that she was self-isolating.

We all have different understandings of humour, to believe that Prince William is arranging events to show of his humorous and relatable side is an odd thing to assume. However, these events with children do show exactly that.

There's a very positive vibe from the 3 day Visit here and it was as one said a mix of the Fun and the Serious!

The crowds of well wishers really in Galway were there since 7.30 am on a frosty and foggy March morning to wish them well.

I can imagine that Traditional Irish music session for the Duke and Duchess at Tig Coili will do not but good for its publicity.

Looking forward to their next trip!

I thought a minute about what I was writing before... and now I know, what I really mean! Sorry for the texts from earlier this day!

I did recognize this at first at the Pakistan trip: What kind of Pakistan was shown to us, the interested western audiance: A very traditional,(.....) country...

And now in Ireland: I have seen funny activities, a dairy farm and some politicians (I don't know, if Sinn Fein folks were among them...).

(......)

So, if William wants to horse around, why not where it could count into the near future? And we, the audiance, could learn something new and exciting and modern about Ireland. Instead we see cows....

Just as an example!
(Sorry for my longer as ususal and boring text here! )

(....). Please bare in mind that this was a visit to the Republic of Ireland, where William and Catherine didn't just meet some politicians they met the President, and the Prime Minister (Taoiseach).

The "cows" they saw were on a research farm that was promoting sustainable farming research in Ireland. That's something new and exciting? They were shown cows and their baby calves before meeting children from local primary school, Kiltale School, who have been working on projects about healthy eating and nutrition. This links perfectly in with the work Catherine is doing for early years.

What did you want exactly?

I know I want to see my future King and Queen, visiting people, being with the people and understanding their ways of live.

A couple of posts have been edited to remove off topic references, as well as a derogatory comment about a country.

Please stay on topic!
