PRINCE William entertained onlookers with a number of humorous quips as he and the Duchess of Cambridge pulled pints whilst visiting a bar in Belfast on Wednesday.
The bar was at the Empire Music Hall, where the royal couple met a number of local dignitaries. The Duke and Duchess are in the middle of an official visit to Northern Ireland. Both royals pulled pints of Harp Ice Lager from behind the bar.
Admiring his handiwork Prince William exclaimed: “Look at that bad boy.”
He added: “Perfect! Good enough for an advert.”
Earlier onlookers cheered as Kate pulled her pint.
The couple were welcomed to the venue by the Lord Lieutenant of Belfast, Fionnuala Jay-O’Boyle.
Northern Irish comedian Shane Todd performed at the event.
Referring to the royals he quipped: “Everyone seems excited for some reason!
“I met them at the door. They were very nervous but hit it well”.
Another attendee was Northern Irish Olympian Dame Mary Peters, who had just been appointed to the Order of the Garter by the Queen.
She won a gold medal at the 1972 Munich Olympic games, as well as the BBC’s Sports Personality of the Year and a number of medals at the Commonwealth Games.
During an address Prince William commented: “Mary Peters is not only one of the United Kingdom’s sporting legends, she’s also inspired generation after generation to come together in times of trouble and work for the common good.
So it was fitting today that Her Majesty The Queen has appointed Mary to be a Lady Companion of the Most Noble Order of the Garter, one of the UK’s highest honours.
“I hope you can all join me in thanking and congratulating her personally this evening.”
Prince William turned again to his pint pulling prowess as he finished his speech.
He joked: “All that remains is to say thank-you to all of you once again.
“On the assumption that the bar staff are more skilled than Catherine and I at pulling pints, I’ve no doubt you’ll have a brilliant evening.”
