Prince William and Princess Kate’s surprising accommodation 150 miles from home

The Prince and Princess of Wales have made a special visit to their namesake country.

As part of their roles as the Prince and Princess of Wales, the royal couple have made a trip to the South Wales Valleys and their accommodation  just may surprise you.

The royal couple have a residence inside of Kensington Palace, and two other beautiful homes in Windsor and Norfolk, and they are used to frequent stately homes and lavish properties, but on Thursday they rested their heads at a local B&B.

They spent the night at the Duffryn Mawr guest house, and the royal couple are said to have enjoyed their stay.

Ahead of their stopover, the couple ate at The Bluebell Country Inn, a small independent restaurant and B&B in the heart of the Bannau Brycheiniog National Park.

During their Welsh visit, the couple met with the Central Beacons Mountain Rescue Team, where Princess Kate took part in abseiling. The rescue efforts are a cause close to the Prince’s heart considering he used to work for the East Anglian Air Ambulance.

Another pitstop was at a local rugby club, a passion close to both their hearts.

Wales is a location that the couple have fond memories of as before their 2011 wedding, the then-Duke and Duchess of Cambridge moved into a cottage on the Bodorgan Estate in Anglesey, an island off the north-west coast of Wales, where William was stationed as a search and rescue pilot.

The Prince became the royal patron of the Wales Air Ambulance charity earlier this year, his first Welsh patronage since being given the title the Prince of Wales by King Charles III.

The last time William and Kate made an official appearance in Wales was in February when they went head-to-head in a spin class race. Despite wearing a midi skirt and heels, Kate was crowned the winner and handed a gold cup as she beat her husband in a 45-second speed trial.
