Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visit Northern Ireland
Britain’s Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visit Northern Ireland today (14.06.16) without Prince George and Princess Charlotte.
The two-year-old son and 13-month-old daughter of the royal couple will stay at home as their parents embark on their first outing to the country as a married couple.

Speaking to a well-wisher as she greeted the crowds on The Mall at the Patron’s Lunch on Sunday (12.06.16), Catherine said: “I’ve honestly never seen him so excited. His face lit up.”
