The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge landed in Belfast on Wednesday to begin a two-day trip around Northern Ireland including Fermanagh and Ballymena.

Prince William and Kate kicked off their visit by heading to Windsor Park football stadium, home of the Irish Football Association (IFA).

The royal couple then headed to Fermanagh where they met with charity Extern to learn about the work they are doing at their Roscor Youth Village, a residential activity centre for children who are referred to the charity by social workers or the Department of Justice.

Kate and Will then headed back to Belfast and finished their trip at the Empire Music Hall, where they attended a party celebrating young people who are making a real difference in Northern Ireland.

The band LARKS took to the stage, and guests from the areas of business, arts and sports sectors, including former gold medal-winning Olympic pentathlete Dame Mary Peters who had been appointed Lady Companion of the Most Noble of the Garter by The Queen earlier in the day also attended. Mum-of-two Kate opted for a stunning silver Missoni dress for the occasion and was in high spirits as she pulled a pint of Harp Ice lager at the bar.
