THE Duke and Duchess of Cambridge followed in the footsteps of Gavin and Stacey with a surprise visit to Barry Island in south Wales yesterday.
Their trip came as Welsh businesses welcomed the return of the public amid the easing of lockdown.
William and Kate toured the BBC comedy’s favourite haunts, such as Marco’s cafe and the amusement arcade. But the duke confessed he had never seen the show.
Although their visit had been kept secret to avoid crowds, hundreds of holidaymakers gathered for a chance to see the royal couple.
