The Duke of Cambridge has revealed the unusual activity Princes George and Louis and Princess Charlotte took up over their recent half-term break.

William, patron of the Welsh Rugby Union, spoke to injured players before joining almost 74,000 fans at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff for Wales v France. Ahead of the match, he spoke to people supported by the Welsh Rugby Charitable Trust, including Rhian Roberts, a primary school teacher who is one of 33 people supported by the trust. After telling William she had married into a dairy farm in West Wales, the Duke responded: "We've been lambing with the children this week. Charlotte wasn't sure at first but George was straight in there. Louie loves the tractors. They love seeing the lambs and feeding the lambs."

The primary school teacher, who has been supported by the trust after suffering damage to her neck during a tackle in March 2018, meet William for the first time on Saturday and described him as "down to earth". "We were talking about the land where he was and the land where we are, which is a mining area," she said. "He said they've been lambing this week up in Norfolk. They want the children to see the country way of life as well as the city way of life."
