William and Kate ended their day in Cornwall on Towan Beach in Newquay, where they were greeted by thousands of people.

The couple were there to see the work of the Wave Project, which uses surfing to reduce anxiety and improve wellbeing in children.

Jane Leadbetter, Mayoress of Newquay, spoke to Kate about bringing Prince George and Princess Charlotte to the area.

"She said they would love it here - they do bring them down to Cornwall," she explained.

"They surf themselves. I can't remember where she said they surfed, but it was at two places here.

William told children and volunteers on the beach: "We should have brought our wetsuits. I'm very jealous, living by the beach is just perfect."

He later added: "I am feeling really annoyed that I am not in the proper gear."
