The Duke of Cambridge has enjoyed a pint at a pub, ahead of the opening of pubs, restaurants and cafes tomorrow in England.
Prince William supped on a glass of Aspalls cider at The Rose and Crown pub in Snettisham, Norfolk, in the beer garden during his visit to the establishment earlier today.
Social distancing was observed during the royal visit, with Anthony and Jeannette Goodrich, the owners. He was shown the new steps taken to protect pub-goers, including hand sanitiser, and collecting they details, and told his order of cider with ice would be brought outside to him.
It was only a few weeks ago that the Duke was joking how much he wished he could go to the pub, commenting he had consumed a lot of chocolate and cakes during lockdown…
This is the first public visit from the future King since he visited a local bakery back in June, picking up pain au chocolat and croissants in King’s Lynn, as well as a birthday cake!
