Huge crowds are expected as Prince William and Princess Kate make history on Thursday with their first joint official visit to Cornwall.

And now they are visiting the county for the first time since taking on their new roles.

There is already great excitement amongst royal fans hoping to catch a glimpse of the sweet couple, who always look so loved up during their joint outings. Check out some of their most romantic public moments here.

A spokesperson for the couple confirmed: "The Duke and Duchess will learn about Cornwall’s maritime heritage before visiting a local community centre which is going the extra mile to give opportunities to individuals while building a supportive and cohesive community."

She told CornwallLive : "He was a little bit nervous to begin with when I asked him what he ate yesterday. He was okay to start with as he had a healthy breakfast, but then he admitted someone had got him a 'rubbish sandwich' for lunch, and he had a chocolate brownie and a glass of red wine.

"He made the point of all things in moderation. I wanted to say that was very subjective but I'd already pushed him on asking what he ate," joked Monique.

William became the heir apparent – and known as the Prince of Wales – after the death of his grandmother and the accession of his father Charles to the throne.
