Prince William and Kate Middleton have been enjoying their visit to the Duchy of Cornwall today (1 September) touring the iconic Truro Cathedral, meeting surfers on Newquay's idyllic Towan Beach and inspecting exciting development projects.

But the highlight of the Duchess of Cambridge's day — who looked sensational in a pastel pink dress by luxury New York brand Lela Rose — was pulling a pint at Healey's Cyder distillery.

Judging by her big smile and fit of giggles while pouring her husband a pint of the award-winning Cornish golden brew, the 34-year-old Duchess was in her element while showing off her new skills at the Cider Farm near Truro.

The mother of Prince George and Princess Charlotte struggled to maintain her composure at her first attempt at pulling a Healey's Berry Rattler Cider pint. All the while, Kate managed to look flawless throughout the task as her blow-dried curls maintained their volume and her dewy summery make-up remained intact.

Shortly afterwards, Kate proudly offered husband William the result of her efforts before bursting into a fit of laughter. The Duke, also 34, appeared to poke fun at his wife's effort, but seemed impressed nevertheless.

Kensington Palace has been live tweeting the royal couple's Cornish visit via their official Twitter page along with exclusive pictures since their arrival. The royal couple were delighted to greet onlookers at their first stop, Truro Cathedral, but it was Kate Middleton's presence which cheered bystanders.

William was all smiles as he sported a smart-casual outfit of grey check blazer with a crisp white shirt, navy chinos and brown suede brogues for a contemporary look. The royal couple's two-day 'mini tour' will teach them about the Duchy of Cornwall and its history, as they are set to inherit it when Prince Charles becomes king.

Along with visiting youth centres and development projects in Nansledan and Tregunnel Hill, William and Kate appeared to have enjoyed their time at Towan Beach with Wave Project, which uses surfing to help reduce anxiety in children. The duke undoubtedly took great interest in this part of the day due to his huge passion for mental health and raising awareness about depression and anxiety.

Posting a picture of the royal couple surrounded by children on surfboards, Kensington Palace tweeted: "It's easy to see why this is such a transformative project - using surfing to improve children's mental wellbeing".
