The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visited Bradford on Wednesday to carry out their first joint engagements of the year. Prince William and Kate’s first stop of the day was City Hall in Centenary Square to join a group of young people from across the community to hear about life in Bradford. The royal couple delighted members of the public as they stopped to chat to them before their next engagement. Their appearance comes shortly after Prince William attended crunch talks surrounding his brother’s decision to step back as a senior royal.

Prince William and Kate are also set to travel to one of Bradford’s Khidmat Centres, whose main focus is to help the most vulnerable members of the community from minority ethnic backgrounds. William and Kate will join a session involving groups supported by Better Start Bradford, which delivers over 20 projects to pregnant women and families under the age of four. One of the Duchess’ main focuses is her Early Years initiative and the importance of supporting children and families from a young age. Click through the gallery to see the best pictures from the day…
