After a family vacation on the Isles of Scilly, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge headed back to work this week. Yesterday, Kate visited Baby Basics to help unpack donations and learn about the organization that supports mothers and families that need assistance with essentials and equipment.
Today, Kate and her prince visited Barry Island in South Wales, where the BBC series "Gavin & Stacey" took place. Fun fact: "The Late Late Show" host James Corden co-wrote and starred on the TV show, which is available to stream on Hulu.
The Cambridges visited the area to support local businesses that are starting to reopen after the U.K.'s COVID-19 lockdown. The visit to Barry Island was kept a secret to avoid large crowds, but people on holiday found out about the special guests and descended upon the seaside town.
The real treat came when William and Kate stopped by Shire Home Care Hall, where the residents played virtual Bingo with the couple back in May. One player in particular, 87-year-old Joan Drew Smith, won notoriety for criticizing William's Bingo calling skills.
"Hello Joan, do you remember we did the bingo with you?" William asked her during a meeting outdoors at the care home. "You said we weren't very good!"
Joan did not disappoint, telling William, "Yes, you did a bloody sh** job."
According to the Daily Mail, the couple roared with laughter at Joan's response.
"I love Joan, she's brilliant," William told the staff afterwards. "If only everyone was as honest as her."
There you have it. A visit to Wales to promote local tourism, with a side of stark criticism.
