THE Duchess of Cambridge got into the swing of things during her Royal visit to County Durham today - by having a go at golf.

The Duke and Duchess then travelled to Durham where they met young people supported by the Cheesy Waffles Project, a charity for children, young people and adults with additional needs across County Durham.

Kate was cheered on by supporters - with a bemused Prince William enjoying her attempt at a tee shot.

The Duke and Duchess heard about how The Key’s youth-led development programme, The Key Framework, is helping to support thousands of young people to build skills and discover their capabilities by encouraging groups of young people to plan, pitch and carry out their own project ideas.

During their visit to the Cheesy Waffles Project, Their Royal Highnesses met a group taking part in a project currently going through The Key Framework, and heard how they have found the process of working to deliver a wellbeing and mindfulness project.

The Duke and Duchess also heard more about the other initiatives that are delivered by the CWP to help its members develop independent skills, before joining young people taking part in a number of outdoor activities including golf-putting and natural artwork.
