Why William and Kate's trip was kept a secret

Prince Harry and Kate Middleton Blackpool

OFF TO THE SEASIDE Wills and Kate will visit Blackpool next week

This evening, the Duke and Duchess were greeted by cheering crowds at the Empire Music Hall in Belfast.

It's believed that Kate wore the same ensemble to the event that she wowed onlookers with earlier in the day: a new-to-her-wardrobe cornflower blue Mulberry coat.

Before you picture the Duchess of Cambridge pacing back and forth in a dimly lit room, know that "broody" is British slang for hens ready to lay eggs (why does everything in England circle back to hens?) - i.e. Their first stop was at Windsor Park football stadium, where they learned about the Irish Football Association's programs to encourage youngsters to get into sports.

William then took his turn, saying "here we go" as he tilted the pint glass.

William and Kate are on a two-day tour of Northern Ireland while their three children are at home in London.

Once again, Kate proved her sartorial skills with savvy-choices and quick outfit changes.

Pochettino said games like that were must-win matches if they were to compete for top spot. My behaviour was public and now I want to apologise in a public way.

The focus of this royal visit is very much on children and young people.

As she arrived in Belfast, the ever-fashionable royal rewore a gorgeous red Carolina Herrera coat dress that she initially debuted during the couple's royal tour of Canada in 2016.

Kate was on a walkabout with the Duke of Cambridge in Ballymena on the second day of their Northern Ireland visit when she met a baby called James Barr.

The couple tried out some of the 50 activities available to children there who come from 22 counties of Ireland every year including canoeing and archery.

Middleton paired her mint-hued midi with taupe suede pumps, a matching nude clutch and casual curls, while Prince William opted for a suit sans tie.
