Adorable four year old greets the Prince and Princess of Wales with flowers

An adorable youngster captured the hearts of the nation on Tuesday as he was pictured excitedly meeting the Prince and Princess of Wales during their first official visit to the country since receiving their new titles.

During the first stop on their tour of Wales, Kate was handed a beautiful bouquet in Anglesey by one cheerful young boy, four year old Theo Crompton, who had come out to see the royals especially for their visit.

Grinning from ear to ear as he was introduced to the senior royals during their trip to the RNLI lifeboat station in Holyhead, William and Kate surprised him even further as they crouched down to accept the flowers and to have a short, but enthusiastic chat with their young fan.

After meeting with Theo, the pair also went on to meet with crew members, volunteers and even people who had been saved by the dedicated team in the past, as they paid tribute to the hard work of the vital charity that helps to save so many lives.

One of the oldest lifeboat stations in Wales, the highly skilled crew have no less than 70 awards for gallantry between them, with their vital contribution to the local community helping to keep residents and holiday makers safe, each and every year.

Holyhead itself also holds a poignant meaning for the Prince and Princess, as William and Kate used to live just half an hour’s drive away at Ynys Mon shortly after tying the knot in 2011.

Having made their first official home together in Wales, the stunning landscape and friendly locals will always hold a special place in their heart, with the pair even said to hold a “deep affection” for Wales as a historic and thriving nation.

Wales was also Prince George’s first home for the first few months of his life before the young couple returned to England.

Following their visit to Holyhead, the Prince and Princess headed off to Swansea, to meet with staff and volunteers at St.Thomas’ church, which has recently been converted into a community hub to help provide vital services to struggling families and the homeless.

Meeting with volunteers that worked specifically at the Baby Bank and Food Bank in particular, both William and Kate could be seen animatedly engaging with crowds that had come out to support them, including a few more very young royal fans too.

In one particularly poignant photo, William could be seen chatting away to a young mum as she held her baby, with the Prince looking delighted as he spoke to them both.

Baby banks in particular also hold a personal significance for Kate, as she had previously worked with baby banks and united 19 British brands and retailers to donate over 10,000 new items to more than 40 such banks nationwide, back in 2020.

In their new roles as the Prince and Princess of Wales, both William and Kate will now be making more frequent visits to the country as they continue to “support the aspirations of the Welsh people and to shine a spotlight on both the challenges and opportunities in front of them”.

The couple are expected to return again before Christmas.
