The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince William and Kate Middleton, had a great time at the Cheesy Waffles Project in County Durham, where they took turns teeing off golf balls.
Kate was unable to hit the ball on her first attempt, despite taking her time setting up the shot, which elicited raucous laughter from her and the audience clustered around them. She tried again and successfully linked with the ball, which drew applause from the audience.
The amusing moments were posted on Twitter by Richard Palmer, a royal correspondent.

Prince William, on the other hand, had more luck, faking it a little by bending his knees before taking up the golf club and smashing the ball.
It was the royal couple’s first public appearance since the tragic death of Prince Philip. As the pair made their way over to an arts and crafts table, Kate even greeted visitors with an elbow knock.
