ROYAL couple William and Kate are set to return to North Wales in May.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will visit Anglesey and Caernarfon to meet individuals and organisations who are looking after their communities and protecting the natural environment.

Their Royal Highnesses will firstly visit the Caernarfon Coastguard Search and Rescue Helicopter Base, during their trip on Wednesday, May 8.

Until 2015, search and rescue operated out of RAF Valley on Anglesey, where The Duke worked as an RAF search and rescue pilot between 2010-2013.

Their Royal Highnesses will view the Coastguard’s new Sikorsky S92 helicopters, and meet members of the search and rescue team, many of whom previously worked alongside The Duke at RAF Valley.

The Duke and Duchess will then join a discussion with crew members about the mental health challenges that result from working as first responders, and will also meet staff from the Wales Air Ambulance, which operates next door to Caernarfon Search and Rescue.

From Caernarfon, their Royal Highnesses will travel to Anglesey, where they previously lived.

They will visit Halen Môn Anglesey Sea Salt, a thriving business which has been operating for over two decades, and won the Queen’s Award for Sustainability in 2017.

They will also see the salt making process from hand harvesting to packaging, and will learn more about Halen Môn’s collaborations with other local food producers, and their involvement in community initiatives.
