Prince William and Kate Middleton are in Derry, their first ever visit to the city

The royal couple are meeting with student nurses and paramedics.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are in Derry, after a glamorous appearance at the No Time to Die premiere in London on Tuesday night.

On their trip they will be meeting young people and various organisations. They began their visit at Ulster University’s Magee Campus where they were shown a specially designed simulated ambulance, the first of its kind in the region.

It was built on campus for the new BSc Hons paramedic science programme in Northern Ireland, with the first students beginning the course last week.

William and Kate are also due to meet with a group of student nurses who they spoke with over video call in February about their experiences of completing their work placements during the pandemic.

They will also meet the first class to study at the University’s new School of Medicine, established with the aim to produce more medical professionals to meet the needs of the population.

There will be a chance for the couple to see how the students relax, as they will attend an event at the Student Union, where it’s reported that the Duke and Duchess will get the chance to enjoy music played by the students and try some local delicacies, including wheaten bread and Tayto crisps (presumably the Northern Irish variety).

Apparently students will be teaching the royal couple some local phrases, although anyone who has watched Derry Girls will already be versed in the greatest hits.
