Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have fun in the sun on Barry Island!
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge followed in the footsteps of Gavin and Stacey when they visited a Welsh seafront now a pilgrimage site for the show's fans.
William and Kate toured the haunts of the comedy drama's characters - an arcade and cafe on Barry Island - but the duke confessed to never having seen the popular series.
The couple got into the holiday spirit when they visited Island Leisure amusement arcade - the iconic setting for "Nessa's Slots" where Ruth Jones' character Nessa worked for a period.
At one moment Kate was giving a double thumbs up and crying out "yes" when her prize came closer as she played the infamous crane game.
But a second later the soft toy fell from the clutches of the claw and she turned to William in disappointment but with a smile still on her face.
The royals also hurled balls at the Down the Clown coconut shy-style game after paying one pound a go, and they found the chair used by Nessa, surrounded by Gavin And Stacey merchandise.
William and Kate were given a tour by owners Hilary and Andrew Phillips before they reopened the attraction, for the first time since lockdown, later in the day.
