William and Kate appear in Wales
Prince William and Kate Middleton made an official public appearance Thursday, participating in a ceremony in Wales.
The prince, who greeted the crowd in Welsh (and then apologized for his pronunciation, the Sun noted), gave a short speech dedicating a lifeboat. Kate then poured champagne over the boat (the bottle itself was not broken, the Associated Press reported, because the boat is inflatable).
William is based in north Wales while serving as a search-and-rescue helicopter pilot. Kate is reportedly splitting her time between William's quarters and her parents' home in England.
The prince and his fiancee, who arrived by Range Rover, chatted with local dignitaries and members of the public. He wore a coat and tie; she wore a beige coat and black scarf and topped off her outfit with a feathered hat.
