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! )

About cows/farming (Teagasc):

1. Catherine's Back to Nature and William's climate change
https://www.rte.ie/news/ireland/2020...7-royal-visit/
Quote:
Beef researchers at Teagasc Paul Crossan and Edward O'Riordan showed the couple the Derrypatrick demonstration suckler herd.

They were told about steps being taken to ensure beef is produced in an environmentally sustainable way.

The royal couple were also told about technologies that have been developed and adopted to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from the herd.

Teagasc's countryside management specialist Catherine Keena spoke to the couple about the initiatives on farms around the country to promote biodiversity.

Local primary school children from Kiltale National School also got to meet the royal couple.

The students had completed projects on the environment, nutrition and food production and spoke to the royal couple about what they had learned.
https://www.irishtimes.com/news/irel...beef-1.4193006
Quote:
They were actually talking about the importance of farming, sustainability and the environment with O’Riordan and Crossan.

“They were very knowledgeable and particularly interested in the farm-to-fork concept and the distance between consumers and food production,” Crossan said after the tour ended. “They were also both very interested in countryside stewardship and the important role farmers have to play in that.”

Crossan said they had discussed farm sustainability and “whether or not farmers are being adequately rewarded for what they do. They were talking about how in an increasingly urbanised world, consumers do not realise exactly how food is produced.”
Many may not aware that food industry contributes huge number in carbon footprint, from how it's produce and where it comes from. E.g. local food product will have higher carbon footprint than imported one mostly from transportation.

And Teagasc also working on research in reducing carbon footprint of beef production.

For William personally, he can learn for his future role as Duke of Cornwall.

2. Brexit
Agri-food trade between Ireland and UK
https://www.agriculture.gov.ie/brexi...andstatistics/
Quote:
Agri-food trade and exposure to UK market

In terms of specific sectoral exposure:

Almost 50% of our beef exports go to UK,
About 22% of our dairy exports go to the UK, of which:
41% is cheese, 26% is butter and 12% is SMP;
Cheddar is the largest dairy export to the UK - 47% (81k tonnes) of Irish cheddar cheese is exported to the UK.
Some 47% of cheddar exported to the UK is of Irish origin.
99% of mushroom and 71% forestry products and more than 62% of prepared consumer foods are exported to the UK.
https://www.independent.ie/business/...-37614229.html
Quote:
The EU is the biggest source of beef imports for the UK market and accounted for 94pc of all beef imports during the first nine months of 2018.

Beef imports from the EU totalled 200,095t during the 2018 period with imports from the Republic of Ireland accounting for 76pc of this at 151,469t.
How Brexit will affect it:
https://www.irishtimes.com/business/...exit-1.3800197
Quote:
After a no-deal Brexit, food exporters to the UK would face a range of immediate and serious issues. For many, the most serious is the threat of tariffs, special import taxes which would face food products entering the UK from the EU.
....

A no-deal exit is the worst possible outcome because everything would change overnight on March 29th – or possibly at a later date if the EU and UK agree to extend the departure date but still can’t reach a deal. This means the introduction of customs and regulatory checks immediately on goods entering the UK market and the imposition of tariffs.
That's where it could count into the near future. So yes, this particular trip represents important issue for both countries' future.

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!
Funny because I've seen Charles dancing awkwardly iwht pretty girls, or doing something like tryng hurley or lifting a glass of Guinness.

I think what I like best is that even though William and Catherine are very much in the public eye and are very professional in everything they do as future King and Queen and all that role entails, we still get to see them as a down to earth, ordinary couple that still very much enjoy being with each other.

So close to the city but yet so peaceful.

Tourism Ireland must be on cloud nine

It’s kind of like how maybe kids don’t know they need to see their parents being happy together...but they do, for their own sense of security. Kate and William are stable and loving - a “we four” for the 2000’s, except it’s “we five” - and there’s a sense of security that the monarchy is in good hands (following his father, who started to thrive after he’d found happiness).

Us Brits are renowned for making humorous comments in troublesome situations. It's just how we do things - as a nation we don't like to show our feelings much! I thought William's comment was more or less harmless. The only jokes about coronavirus I have problems with are the racially motivated ones towards Chinese/South East Asian people (of which William did not do).

Lily, thought I’d give you an update - I did post this in the Coronavirus thread.

I’m very likely - well, just about 100% now - going to cancel my June trip to England and Scotland. It’s heartbreaking, but I couldn’t argue with my parents’ reasoning. They don’t want me to be alone in the UK should anything happen - be it quarantine or my own hospitalization. As all the experts are saying, it’s an uncertain time even in places not experiencing outbreaks, and I don’t do well with uncertainty. I don’t want to do this, but....there will always be an England and Scotland. They aren’t going anywhere, and I think it would be better travel domestically at this point. I’m sad about this, sigh, but I think my parents and I will plan a trip in the States for now.

Sorry, I know this is off-topic, but the subject came up...

The Irish are the most welcoming, warm, people. I'm glad to see a friendship between nations so close but with a terrible past.
Kate and William show off spectacular views around Dublin.

Eimear Manning, and ambassador for Atlantic Youth met The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge during their coastal walk. She posted a twitter thread last night about the reaction a picture she tweeted received. It was frankly a disgusting response to such an innocent picture.

https://twitter.com/schoolthesefish/...351260161?s=21

One tweet in particular from Eimear;

“My Twitter page is very small. Less than 200 followers. But after posting that image of me and the Duchess, the likes, retweets and comments started pouring in. Horrible, spiteful, hateful comments. Every single one of the comments directed at the Duchess. 4/“

Wow, I’m so sorry for her - and that Kate got that reaction. She said later in that she was shocked ...sadly to say, I’m not. People in general seem to be bitterly resentful towards the famous or the rich - I’ve heard too many things not to believe this.
