by J Roberts
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.
