The Prince and Princess of Wales made their first public appearance on Thursday, two days after the release of Prince Harry’s explosive memoir, Spare.

Prince William and Kate were questioned about the Duke of Sussex’s controversial autobiography as they opened a leading hospital – but one visitor told the future king to “keep going”.

For their first joint outing of the year, William and Kate opened the new Royal Liverpool University Hospital and arrived to cheers and selfie requests as they arrived.

For their next stop, William and Kate visited the Open Door Charity, which focuses on supporting young adults across Merseyside with their mental health, using culture and creativity as the catalyst for change.

The Princess’ appearance comes days after she celebrated her 41st birthday on Monday.

The Waleses spent their Christmas break at their Norfolk abode, Anmer Hall, and attended the Christmas Day church service at Sandringham alongside the King, the Queen Consort and extended members of the royal family.

During the Christmas break, the family-of-five also enjoyed a trip to see Santa at Lapland UK and William even reportedly treated his wife to a thrilling date by taking an Aston Martin DBX707 for a weekend test drive.
