Kate Middleton shares how Princess Charlotte is REALLY feeling about school

Kate Middleton shares how Princess Charlotte is REALLY feeling about school

She wasn't kidding. After joining her husband, Prince William, for a walk-about, that's exactly what she did: travel to a nearby farm to shear sheep with her own bare hands.

He said farmers would be hit by export tariffs and a "black hole" in subsidy payments.

Prince William seemed to have a knack for sheep shearing.

Danny Teasdale, who runs a community interest company in Glenridding, said: "The conversation was really good and they were really interested".

'That's why I think it's so important that all of us, whether we are parents or carers or family members, really engage in quality time with our children and babies from a really young age'.

"It's just uncertainty and the not knowing. A lot of farming is an export market".

Later in the day, Kate and William joined the Cumbria Wildlife Trust and children from Patterdale School for an environmental educational session on the Ullswater Way.

The pup, who's full title Prince Harry of Winterfells is an a ode to HBO's Game of Thrones, is a therapy dog created to boost positivity and wellbeing in people who struggle with mental health.

McIlroy's round was tied for best on the day with Jonathan Byrd, who was in share for ninth at eight under. Hughes, from Dundas, Ont., shot a 1-under 69 to sit in sole possession of eighth at 9 under.

The Duchess of Cambridge was seen greeting locals in Keswick Market, where she also stopped to pet three very cute dogs.

"I said, 'This is Paddy, obviously that's Max, and this one's Prince Harry, ' and he laughed [and] he said, 'Oh yes".

William and Kate's fondness for dogs should come as no surprise to royal admirers.

The royal visitors are known to be dog lovers, owning an English cocker spaniel.

Kate spoke at the event, describing the charity as "very close" to her heart. "Maybe we should lend you Lupo, '" Irving said.

Mr Irving, 54, suffered a devastating vehicle crash in 2006, but overcame severe depression by walking his neighbour's dog Max before he adopted him.

In Keswick the royal visitors were greeted by hundreds of well-wishers at the start of their visit to Cumbria.

The royals met volunteers from the local mountain rescue service, community first responders, and organisations that have benefited from grants from the Cumbria Community Foundation.
