The Cambridges took the time to greet royal fans as they arrived in Cardiff for the Platinum Jubilee celebrations
The visit is one of a number members of the royal household are carrying out across the UK to mark the Jubilee. While the Cambridges visited Cardiff, Prince Edward and Sophie Wessex arrived in Northern Ireland.
Harry and Meghan, on the other hand, are expected to be absent from Jubilee celebrations today, as they celebrate daughter Lilibet’s first birthday at Windsor and continue to keep a low-profile.
According to Omid Scobie, they will mark the birthday ‘together privately as a family’. The Queen, Prince Charles and Camilla and the Cambridges all wished Lilibet a happy birthday through their social media accounts.
Later, William and his father Prince Charles will take centre stage in front of a crowd of 22,000 to pay tribute to the Queen during a star-studded Jubilee concert outside Buckingham Palace.

The father and son – both future kings – will speak separately in honour of the monarch towards the end of the BBC’s open-air Party at the Palace show, on the third evening of the four-day Jubilee festivities.
Despite the event not starting until 8pm, royal fans began arriving at The Mall from 8am to get the best spot.
It is thought unlikely the Queen will attend the concert but confirmation of any movements will be released later today. She will also not attend today’s Epsom Derby Day, but is expected to be glued to the TV, watching the developments from Windsor. Princess Anne will appear in her place.
Meanwhile, Princess Beatrice and her husband Edoardo were pictured leaving the Maison Estelle private member’s club at 1am last night.
The Met Office has warned of thunder and downpours this morning – but a second round of storms is set to miss concert-goers at the Party at the Palace.
