The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visit Northern Ireland today for a tour of Ulster University

Today saw the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visit Northern Ireland, with their visit specifically focused on meeting the younger generation, and chatting about what life is like as we slowly exit the pandemic.

Revealing the reason for their trip on Twitter they shared; “It’s great to be back in Northern Ireland for a day in Derry-Londonderry hearing from young people about how life has been during the pandemic and meeting organisations working across communities.”

First the pair went to Ulster University where they met with nursing students who worked on the frontlines in the early days of the pandemic.

In a statement shared to Instagram they said; “Having spent the day hearing from the student union and being reconnected with nursing students from earlier in the year, it’s inspiring to see how young people are promoting inclusivity following the pandemic in Northern Ireland.”

Afterwards, both Will and Kate were given a full tour of the college campus where they also got to visit the petting zoo as well as joining in a game of rugby at the City of Derry Rugby Club.

Before they left they took part in some games at the student union, including one where they had to try their best at pronouncing some rather difficult Irish names.  
Finally, they of course finished off their visit with a pint of Guinness!
