Kate Middleton and Prince William visit Gavin & Stacey Slot Matching Arcade in Barry Island


Kate Middleton cut a stylish figure in a recycled floral dress when she visited Prince William Gavin & Stacey's slot machine game arcade in South Wales on Wednesday.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, both 38, secretly visited the legendary "Nessa" parade on Barry Island, where they heard from local business owners about the effects of COVID-19 on the tourism sector before traveling to Shire Hall Care at home Cardiff, where they spoke to employees, residents and their family members.

In the successful BBC comedy show, Nessa has a number of odd jobs – including working on the slots of the Island Leisure Amusement Arcade along the promenade – that range from flashing machines to a board that reads "Nessas Slots – Come and see what happens? & # 39;

And it seems that the invitation was tempting for the Royals – their visit to Barry Island came when companies in Wales started opening their doors to the public again as the lockdown measures gradually waned.

Kate is typically elegant in the £ 1,635 designer dress by Emelia Wickstead, which she complements with a pair of chic tan wedges.

The mother of three was the first to put on the pastel blue belted dress with a pink floral print when she opened her Back to Nature garden at RHS Wisley in Surrey in September 2019.
