The couple traveled to Wales on Tuesday to mark St. David's Day, celebrating the patron saint of the country. Wales is a special place for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, as it is where they lived shortly after their wedding back in 2011. The newlyweds rented a farmhouse in Anglesey. Their royal visit comes amid the news that Queen Elizabeth has recovered from COVID-19. The monarch was seen for the first time since her diagnosis on Feb. 20 as she carried out two virtual meetings from Windsor Castle on Tuesday. William and Kate visited with the Queen on Sunday along with their children. William and Kate's first stop in Wales was to Pant Farm, a goat farm that has been providing milk to a local cheese producer for nearly 20 years. Kate, 40, and Prince William, 39, heard about the challenges and opportunities faced by the sector and how the farm works with local industries and services. Prince William and Kate Middleton.

In keeping with many South Wales valley towns, Blaenavon has had to overcome economic hardship in the last 30 years and the Hwb is ensuring that the next generation are able to reach their potential by providing a space for alternative education and supporting care-experienced and vulnerable young people.
