The Prince and Princess of Wales visited Northern Ireland for a number of engagements, including an impromptu walkabout where they met with schoolchildren and crowds of royal fans.
Kate looked perfectly polished in a £295 Winser London silk blouse and matching blue coat, thought to be from Alexander McQueen, teamed with elegant navy trousers, recycled £85 Missoma hoop earrings and a DeMellier London £295 handbag.
But it was William who seemingly caused an uproar with the crowd, with one young school boy squealing with joy after shaking hands with the Prince at the event.
In the adorable video, which was shared by Royal Editor Rebecca English on Twitter, the royal father-of-three could be seen making his way along a line of school children, saying: ‘It’s nice to see you!’
Meanwhile one of the children could be heard shouting excitedly: ‘Go on – I’m never washing this hand again!’
The adorable moment a schoolboy declared he was ‘never washing his hand again’ after meeting Prince William and Kate Middleton during a walkabout in Belfast was caught on camera yesterday

The video emerged as the Prince and Princess paid thanks to Northern Ireland for hosting them following a trip to Belfast – despite Kate being challenged by an Irish nationalist during an impromptu walkabout.
Prince William and Kate, both 40, shared a message on their official social media pages, writing: ‘Thank you for having us, Northern Ireland!’
Meanwhile the couple posted a swish video showing a highlights reel of their trip, including a clip of the royal mother-of-three making a cocktail, and Prince William playing with a pair of dogs.
Their message came hours after Kate was confronted by a woman during a walkabout, who told her that ‘Ireland belongs to the Irish’ during the meet and greet in north Belfast this afternoon.

While shaking hands with the princess, the woman said: ‘Nice to meet you but it would be better if it was when you were in your own country.’
The woman, who was wearing an emerald green cardigan, appeared to be videoing the exchange on a mobile phone.
A stunned Kate, who managed to keep her composure throughout the exchange, laughed and let go of the woman’s hand before continuing to smile and greet other members of the crowd.
The clip, which was shared last night by the couple, featured a number of clips from the stay, including the walkabout.

However the incident with the woman in the green jumper wasn’t included in the video.
Instead, Kate was seen greeting school-children and the camera panned across a crowd of waving royal fans.
In another clip, Prince William was seen chatting to members of the public.
Observers took to social media to praise Kate for ‘handling the moment perfectly.’

One wrote on Twitter: ‘That very disrespectful lady should have stayed at home instead of wasting her time waiting for someone she doesn’t like… Catherine handled the moment perfectly though.
Earlier yesterday, the prince and princess visited PIPS Charity, which provides support to individuals who are considering, or who have at some point considered, ending their own lives.
For their final engagement, the couple visited youth charity Carrick Connect, which offers support services to local young people experiencing social or emotional difficulties, in the town of Carrickfergus in Co Antrim.
The Prince and Princess of Wales were given the titles of Baron and Baroness Carrickfergus by Her late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II upon their marriage in 2011.
