PRINCE WILLIAM entertained royal fans on Thursday as he showed off an “impressive” new skill whilst on his three-day visit to Ireland with wife Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge.
The Duke of Cambridge surprised members of the press and of the public in Galway, Ireland, on Thursday when he managed to do a juggling trick with three balls. Posting a video of Prince William showing off the surprising skill on Twitter, Daily Express Royal Correspondent Richard Palmer wrote: “Just a juggling future King, that’s all.” Others were quick to comment on the entertaining video. One fan wrote: “He’s good! Love the Duke.”
And another: “Seriously impressive. I could never do that.”
In a second video posted by Mr Palmer, the Duke attempts to deliver the same trick with four balls, albeit failing.
The Duke is currently on a three-day royal trip across the Republic of Ireland with wife Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge.
The couple touched down at Dublin airport on Tuesday afternoon and have travelled the breadth of the country over three days.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have met a wide range of people from politicians to community leaders and charity workers as they seek to promote Britain’s ties with the nation.

Kate and Will’s tour was made at the request of the Foreign Office and will be used to spread a message of reconciliation and remembrance.
A Kensington Palace statement outlining the tour read: “The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will undertake an official visit to Ireland between Tuesday 3rd March and Thursday 5th March, at the request of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.
“The visit, which will see Their Royal Highnesses spend time in Dublin, County Meath, County Kildare and Galway, will highlight the many strong links between the UK and Ireland.
“From its thriving cities to rural communities, the programme will take in Ireland’s rich culture, its impactful community initiatives and spectacular scenery.
“Following Her Majesty The Queen’s historic visit in 2011, the visit will also focus on the relationship between the two countries, and build on the theme of remembrance and reconciliation.”
Last night Prince William spoke to the people of Dublin to address the “many wrongs” of Britain and Ireland’s “troubled past” just as the Queen did in her 2011 speech.
Queen Elizabeth II has reportedly been giving serious thought to stepping down and handing over the reigns to other senior members of the Royal Family when she turns 95 in two years time.
Fears her abdication from the thrown is imminent have been raised after news the monarch has been allowing Prince William to take on more “high profile” roles.
She recently gave her role as the patron of Family Action, to Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge.
Family Action is a London-based charity which provides support for families in need and she has held the position for 65 years.

Now, William has been seen retracing the footsteps of the ageing monarch as he concludes the second day of his Ireland visit.
Similar to how the Queen did in 2011, William highlighted reconciliation and offered sympathy to those who had suffered in the centuries of conflict between Britain and Ireland in a keynote address in Dublin.
The Duke has spoken about the Troubles and “many wrongs” of the two countries’ “complex” shared history.
This took place at a reception hosted by Tánaiste Simon Coveney in Dublin last night.
