Kate and wills have a kickabout in Northern Ireland

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge pulled pints at an entertainment venue in Belfast as the first day of their visit to Northern Ireland came to a close.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are spending Wednesday and Thursday carrying out a number of engagements in Belfast, Fermanagh and Ballymena.

It is the third time the royal couple have visited the region together.

The focus of this royal visit is very much on children and young people.

After their visit at the football stadium, William and Kate head to County Fermanagh to visit the work of the charity Extern in the Roscor Youth Village.

They watched on as children played in a series of activities at the youth facility.

Meanwhile, William's balance was tested as he walked across a low-ropes assault course.

O'Neill, who himself won 31 caps playing for Northern Ireland, has been credited with bringing the glory days back to the team during his tenure as manager.

They were greeted on arrival by cheering crowds who had gathered on Botanic Avenue.

Kate opted for a shimmery, pleated mint green dress by Missoni, which she paired with nude heels, while William wore a navy blue suit.

They met people involved in an initiative aimed at encouraging more women into key decision-making roles within the game and also chatted to youngsters involved in the Goal programme - a project designed for those not in employment, education or training.

Comedian Shane Todd performed as the royal couple engaged in conversations with those in attendance. William then took his turn at a pour. And I hope you can all join me in thanking and congratulating her personally this evening.
