Coventry to welcome Prince William and Kate on royal visit

Kate Middleton and her husband, Prince William, went on their first joint royal outing of 2018 on January 16, 2018.

The duchess, who has two children with Prince William and is now expecting their third, had a handful of sweet moments with young admirers today.

While in Coventry, William and Kate also greeted fans, including Mia Ramin, 9, who told People, "They didn't seem like people who are too busy for other people".

Royal watchers are speculating over Kate's choice of coat colour, with one person replying: "Mmmm a pink coat, I wonder if the duchess knows if she is having a little girl or not".


Kate Middleton may have a more lavish wardrobe than most, but she is not above recycling her outerwear.

Apparently, 10-year-old Craig Skipper was feeling uneasy after waiting three hours for the royals' arrival.

The boy's mother Carole Flynn told People: "Princess Kate came over and give him a sickbag, our little Craig".

There, they spent time at Coventry Cathedral, where People reported they took part in a "Litany of Reconciliation" prayer service aimed "at healing the wounds of history and building a culture of peace".


Not far away, Prince William was also comforting a little girl in the crowd, who was crying because she wanted hot chocolate. She asked if he was OK. "It was lovely of her", she said.

At the facility students learn to care for a patient at every stage of their medical journey, from paramedics arriving at their house to their stay in hospital, through to their rehabilitation at home.

The Duke and Duchess will end their day by seeing first-hand the work of the Positive Youth Foundation in the city.

The cheerful pop of color stood out next to all-black base layers: her signature opaque tights and suede block-heeled pumps were as practical as they were chic.
