Prince William and Kate Middleton have shown strong Royal characteristics on a visit to the Cheesy Waffles Project at the Belmont Community Centre in Durham.
Their trip included a visit to Manor Farm, a local Durham youth project, as well as a visit to the Cheesy Waffles Project.
This was the first visit the couple has made since the death of Prince Phillip. The younger Prince is said to have made a touching reference to his late grandfather as he spoke with teenagers at the youth project who had completed their Duke of Edinburgh award, saying that his grandfather “would’ve been so proud”.
During their visit to Manor Farm, the Royal couple then met farmers from County Durham and North Yorkshire to discuss their experiences, including the impact of the Covid-19 and the challenges of balancing home-schooling with farming.
The Duke of Cambridge said: “The pandemic takes away your coping mechanisms. We all have ways getting through the days. When you strip that away and at home all the time, it starts to wear on people.”
Afterward, the couple visited the Cheesy Waffles Project (CWP), a charity that provides young people with learning disabilities with the skills and independence they need for adulthood. The project is one of the twenty-six charities chosen for the Royal Wedding Charitable Gift fund, which totalled more than £1 million when the couple married in 2011.
In addition, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge discussed how the people they met had helped out in the community in various ways during the pandemic, including food deliveries for the elderly and hosting online virtual events to maintain people’s morale.
The visit comes after the couple put in huge efforts last year at care homes across Swansea.
The Duke and Duchess have shown fantastic skills during their travels, especially in helping those less fortunate than themselves. They look like incredible potential future monarchs.
