Prince William and Kate Middleton Meet Animal Friends in Cumbria

Prince William and Kate Middleton

The royals also did some hiking on trails in the handsome countryside, helped the Brown family tend to their flock and joined in to help fix a dry stone wall on the farm.

Danny Teasdale, who runs a community interest company in Glenridding, said: "The conversation was really good and they were really interested". Farmers told the royal couple that possible 40% tariffs on sheep, combined with a loss of European Union subsidies for farmers would bring about a "perfect storm".

"William did want to know how people felt about Brexit".

"It does have implications if there are massive tariffs applied".

Their day ended with a nature walk at Side Farm, to meet with schoolchildren from Patterdale Primary School and Cumbria Wildlife Trust volunteers.

Earlier in the day, they met a four-legged friend called Prince Harry as they visited Keswick. The royal couple had actually met Irving and his 11-year-old therapy dog Max at Buckingham Palace last month; however, it was their first time meeting his two other pups-Paddy, 2, and Prince Harry, 7 months.

"She said that her children love coming here and walking in the fells", a youngster named Jack Mumberson told the Daily Mail about his chat with Kate.

William and Kate's fondness for dogs should come as no surprise to royal admirers.

Mr Irving added: "Then Kate was talking about her dog and she said, "Your dogs are so calm".

Ahead of their visit, Andy Beeforth, the Chief Executive of the Cumbria Community Foundation said in a media release that "some of the most selfless people from communities around Cumbria" would be on hand to greet Their Royal Highnesses.

"We are delighted that The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have decided that Princess Charlotte will join her elder brother, Prince George, at Thomas's Battersea", he said.

Mr Irving, 54, suffered a devastating vehicle crash in 2006, but overcame severe depression by walking his neighbour's dog Max before he adopted him.

As they officially tweeted, the pair "celebrated the work of local heroes, volunteers and those supporting the rural community in Cumbria".
