Prince William and Kate are in town today.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are due to attend a number of Royal engagements across the city.

The Royal couple, who are expecting their third child, are due to visit the Children’s Global Media Summit at the Manchester Central Convention Complex.

Royal fans will have the chance to greet Kate and Wills when they arrive at the former GMEX site at around 1pm today.

Prince William will attend a short private meeting related to the Cyber Bullying Taskforce and then deliver a key note speech at the summit this afternoon.

The Duchess, who is expecting their third child, will join a private round table opened by Sesame Workshop, the charitable foundation for Sesame Street, on research commissioned into children emotional well-being. This visit will take place prior to the Children’s Global Media Summit at an undisclosed location in Salford.
