The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were joined by Prince George and Princess Charlotte for a visit to Cardiff to meet entertainers staging a jubilee show.

William and Kate and their children arrived at Cardiff Castle to meet the performers and crew involved in the special Platinum Jubilee Celebration Concert taking place in the castle grounds on Saturday afternoon.

The couple and their children were due to watch rehearsals and meet some of the acts taking part in the celebrations including Welsh singer Bonnie Tyler.

Tyler was last week made an MBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours for her services to music.

The Cambridges and their children were then to be introduced to a number of West End performers, Rubicon Dance Company and the Wales Youth Choir for Good.

It was the siblings’ first official visit to Wales, Kensington Palace said.

Charlotte, seven, who wearing a smart navy frock coat and blue Mary Jane shoes with white ankle socks, smiled and held Kate’s hand as the duchess waved to well-wishers.

The duchess was dressed in a long red coat - matching the colour of the red dragon on the Welsh flag.

George, who is one day expected to be given the title the Prince of Wales, joined his family as they chatted to crowds of royal fans as William placed his arm around his eight-year-old eldest son.

Missing was Prince Louis who stole the show when he appeared on Buckingham Palace’s balcony with his family and the Queen after the Trooping the Colour ceremony on Thursday.

George was seen grinning as William stood behind him with his hands on his shoulders - with the prince wearing a mini-me version of his father’s blue suit and open necked shirt.

The Cambridges were there to meet performers and crew involved in the special Platinum Jubilee Celebration Concert taking place in the castle grounds in the afternoon.

As well as Tyler, other stars appearing include Aled Jones and Shan Cothi, both hosting the show, Mike Peters from The Alarm, West End star John Owen Jones, drumming weatherman Owain Wyn Evans and the Pendyrus Male Voice Choir.
