William and Kate Trearddur Lifeboat Launch

by J Roberts
(North Wales)

Prince William and Kate Middleton today made their first official engagement launching a lifeboat in Trearddur Bay, Anglesey.


Will and Kate arrived at Trearddur Bay just before 2 o'clock in a black Land Rover to take part in the launch of a new inshore RNLI Lifeboat, called Hereford Endeavour.

They were welcomed by RNLI Chief Executive Paul Boissier and a lare enthusiastic crowd of well wishers, some who had travelled from afar to see the couple.

First they sang God Save The Queen, and then they comfortably got to grips with the Welsh National Anthem "Hen Wlad Fy Nhadau", supported by Holyhead Male Voice Choir, Menai Bridge Brass Band and the crowd in support.

Prince William is currently based at RAF Valley where he is a 22 Squadron Search and Rescue Helicopter pilot.

Catherine Middleton was presented with a bunch of flowers by a young local girl, after which she and William met members of the local lifeboat crew and other guests.

Some eager onlookers had gathered outside Trearddur Bay Lifeboat station a few hours before the event.

Will and Kate will now move on to their Alma Mater, visiting St Andrews University.

Will is now an Anglesonian! does that make every person living on the island an Anglesonian? sounds more like a rock formation, like Silurian or Ordovician. LOL!!!

Why is it being a misery guts to praise a couple of youngsters for showing that they value domestic privacy and happiness, and for making a quiet and valuable contribution to daily life?

One-day wonder or domestic bliss?

Am a bit puzzled by the fuss - surely the fact that they have been seen around together on the island for months, quietly supporting island industry and hospitality, is just as worthy of recognition as this admittedly important and much-publicized event?
