Kate and Williams Irish visit in 2020 will always be remembered with fondness.
And the royal couple received a warm welcome from enthusiastic fans all over Ireland, from toddlers to grandparents, underlining undeniable cross channel links and fundamental Irish-British relations.
They attended a reception at the Guinness Storehouse in Dublin, and, like his grandmother, William spoke a few words of Irish.
On the last day of their first official visit, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge tried Gaelic sports in Galway and brought home three Salthill GAA club jerseys for their children, a sliotar, a hurl, and a football to commemorate the first time they played Irish football.
Since joining the royal family in 2011, Kate Middleton has carefully balanced her demanding position as a Royal with her private life as an adoring mother and wife.
As well as undertaking royal duties in support of The Queen, The Duchess devotes her time to supporting a number of charitable causes and organisations, several of which are centred around providing children with the best possible start in life.
