Last Joint Official Engagement before Wedding

Apr 2011

Prince William and Catherine Middleton visited Lancashire this week on their last joint official engagement before their wedding on 29 April.


They arrived at the northern mill town of Darwen in Lancashire, to a downpour of rain.  The crowds, largely undeterred by the weather, turned out in their thousands to catch a glimpse of the Royal Couple.


The Royal bride-to-be came prepared with a large black umbrella, and looked elegant and relaxed, despite the rain, in a stylish blue suit and high heels.


Prince William opened the Darwen Aldridge Community Academy and launched the Skill Force Prince’s Award, for teenagers who make a contribution to their community.


As part of William’s role as patron of the Queen Elizabeth II Fields Challenge – an initiative that aims to protect 2,012 outdoor recreational spaces across Britain – the couple visited Witton Country Park, where Catherine started a 100m race and chatted happily with a group of athletes.


The next time the couple will be seen together, in an official capacity, will be on their wedding day!
