A windswept Kate and Wills fly in to West Midlands – and get behind the wheel for an off-road experience – WITH PICTURE GALLERY
Kate and Wills were in Birmingham today for a windswept whistle-stop tour.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge began their day at Jaguar Land Rover's Solihull factory before moving on to Villa Park and a world-renowned whistle-making firm.
Kate, who is expecting the couple's third child in April, arrived looking casually glamorous dressed in a black and white coat to protect her from the windy weather.
At JLR the Royal couple met staff and both had a go at driving a Land Rover Discovery in an off-road driving experience. They then moved on to Villa Park where they met young apprentices taking part in a project to nurture the next generation of sports coaches.
Later he duke - an Aston Villa fan - and the duchess are expected to be shown past and current products at family-owned Acme Whistles, which was founded in 1870 and exports to 119 countries around the world.
