Their visit to Wales comes after a period of mourning following the death of the Queen.

The prince, who served as an RAF search and rescue helicopter pilot when living on Anglesey with wife Kate, “expressed his and the Princess of Wales’s honour in being asked by the King to serve the Welsh people”.

While in Holyhead, the couple visited the local RNLI Lifeboat Station where they met the crew, volunteers and some of those who have previously been rescued by the team.

It is one of the oldest lifeboat stations on the Welsh coast and, across the years, members have received a total of 70 awards for gallantry.

Royal experts explained that the Queen Consort will get to keep some of the priceless pieces before the Princess of Wales.

Wales holds a special place in the hearts of William and Kate.

They made their first home there at a four-bedroom farmhouse on the Isle of Anglesey between 2010 and 2013.

Prince George was raised there for the first few months of his life.

And it is where they took Prince George and Princess Charlotte during the Platinum Jubilee weekend.

The family were greeted by hundreds of well-wishers as the future King Prince George and his sister Princess Charlotte made their first official outing in the country.

The siblings have not joined their parents on today’s visit as both are in school.

While the Welsh capital of Cardiff was where Prince William, aged eight, carried out his first royal engagement alongside his late mother, Princess Diana.

William and Kate will now be making more regular visits to Wales as part of their roles as prince and princess, and are expected back in the country before Christmas.

It comes as it emerged the Prince of Wales has no plans to stage an investiture ceremony to formally mark receiving his new title.

This is despite William’s father being officially invested with the title Prince of Wales by the Queen during an event staged at Caernarfon Castle in July 1969.

During the elaborate ceremony the Queen placed a coronet on Charles’ head and helped arrange robes around his shoulders, and he pledged allegiance to his mother with the words: “I, Charles, Prince of Wales do become your liege man of life and limb”.

But it is understood William has no plans for “any kind” of an investiture like the ceremony staged for the King, and is focused on deepening the trust and respect of the people of Wales over time.

A royal source said in the aftermath of the Queen’s death: “The new Princess of Wales appreciates the history associated with this role but will understandably want to look to the future as she creates her own path.”

A few days after the Queen’s death, William spoke via telephone with Mark Drakeford, First Minister of Wales, a conversation where the father-of-three mentioned his “deep affection for Wales”.
